Guardians Of The Galaxy was a unique film in many ways. From the bizarre but lovable and pretty much unknown assemble of “heroes,” to the indie director that brought this interstellar adventure to life, to the amazingly catchy and addicting soundtrack, Guardians did a lot of things right. However, out of the things listed above, the latter is the one that resonates with fans the most.
A track list filled with songs from various artists (from The Jackson 5 to The Runaways), Awesome Mix Vol. 1 definitely had the world hooked on a feeling. By the ending of the first film, we all knew to expect an Awesome Mix Vol. 2, but which classic songs would James Gunn be including in the mix this time around? Check out these comments he shared with Super Interssante about the soundtrack below:
“The second soundtrack is great, I think it’s more diverse soundtrack. I think the first soundtrack had a bunch of songs that maybe you heard but didn’t know the name of the song – you didn’t know the name of the singer. In this one, we have some really incredibly famous songs and then some songs that people have never heard. So, it’s a much more diverse soundtrack.”
“Diverse” is an interesting and elusive way to describe the soundtrack. It doesn’t give us any idea what genre or what era these songs will be from, but knowing how capable Gunn is at delivering a great playlist that just about anyone at any age could enjoy, we’re going to assume Awesome Mix Vol. 2 will be another hit. All that we ask for is another catchy track for Baby Groot to get down to.
