Check Out The ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Soundtrack, An “Awesome Mix”


Now, a super hero movie isn’t generally the film you’d think to dig up the soundtrack for. Guardians of the Galaxy is no ordinary super hero movie, though (we hope). This is the movie that hinged its first trailer wholly and completely on Blue Swede’s “Hooked On A Feeling.” That is still, all these months later, kind of unbelievable.

This soundtrack is also, as Slash Film put it, “totally comprised of pop music. Some of it you know, some of it you might not.” It’s also all classic pop music – Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, David Bowie, The Runaways. Look at that playlist embedded down below: in addition to “Hooked On A Feeling,” we get “Spirit in the Sky,” “I Want You Back,” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Plus there’s the artwork, fittingly retro. This movie is going to be – better be – totally bonkers.

I won’t blame a single person who waits to listen until James Gunn’s film arrives August 1, but at least glance at the titles to stoke the fires of your fervor.
