The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack is mostly ’70s/’80s pop songs. (Listen here!)
The main human character in GotG is a guy named Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) who left Earth as a child. One of the few things he has to remind him of home is an old mixtape titled “Awesome Mix Vol. 1,” full of songs by artists like David Bowie, Blue Suede, and the Jackson 5.
Peter Quill’s childhood mixtape is being released as the movie’s soundtrack album later this month, but MTV has put together a Spotify playlist to tide you over until then.
