Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack!


Recommended Posts


Hollywood Records and Marvel are set to release Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" Soundtrack on July 29, 2014.

Music plays a major role in "Guardians of the Galaxy" as the 1970s songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way.
Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, "One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape [Awesome Mix Vol. 1] that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that's the only thing he has left of his mother and that's the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. He uses that as a connection to his past and to the sadness that he feels of having left all that and lost all that."
Gunn also asked composer Tyler Bates to complete some of the tracks for the movie before the start of principal photography so he could play them on set. "The score is also very important," says Gunn. "I worked very hard early on with Tyler Bates, our composer, whom I've done three other movies with, to write part of the score ahead of time so that I'm able to use it on set for big emotional sequences and big action sequences. We can actually play the music on set and the actors can really understand where we're going with it tonally. Our actors have a much better idea of what this film is because of the music that we use, both score and soundtrack."

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to celebrate the use of this song. Thank goodness for paintshop pro and the whole "Keep Calm" craze to inspire me. It's fun to create, and one thing about this website...Bernie always lets our imaginations run free.

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" soundtrack album with "Go All The Way" is currently #1 on iTunes, and #1 in Music, #1 in Soundtracks, and #1 in Movie Scores on Amazon.com!

Wow! If this keeps up, more copies of GATW can sell this summer than over the past 40 years combined!
