Full ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Soundtrack List Revealed
  |  @   |  

It really wouldn’t be much of a Guardians of the Galaxy movie without an Awesome Mix soundtrack. We’ve heard little teases of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack from trailers and various TV spots, but James Gunn has said that some of those songs won’t appear on the final soundtrack cut. Having seen the film yesterday, there is some truth to that. But there are also some very welcomed additions.

Now the full soundtrack list for the movie has been revealed, and like any Awesome Mix soundtrack, there is an eclectic mix of ’70s and ’80s tunes that sure to get you singing along. Check out the full list plus some quotes from Gunn as to why he picked some of them.

The full track list was revealed by Rolling Stone:

  • “Mr. Blue Sky” – Electric Light Orchestra
  • “Fox on the Run” – Sweet
  • “Lake Shore Drive” – Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah
  • “The Chain” – Fleetwood Mac
  • “Bring It on Home to Me” – Sam Cooke
  • “Southern Nights” – Glen Campbell
  • “My Sweet Lord” – George Harrison
  • “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” – Looking Glass
  • “Come a Little Bit Closer” – Jay and the Americans
  • “Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang” – Silver
  • “Surrender” – Cheap Trick
  • “Father and Son” – Cat Stevens
  • “Flash Light” – Parliament
  • “Guardians Inferno” – The Sneepers featuring David Hasselhoff
  • So Sweet’s “Fox On The Run” is one of the in-trailer songs that doesn’t officially appear in the sequel, much like “Spirit In The Sky.” However Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” holds some significance, as Gunn explains:

    “Because it is about the Guardians, at least in the way we use it, and we use it a couple of times in the movie. And the other one is ‘Brandy,’ which is an incredibly important song in the movie. Both happen to be two of my favorite songs from the Seventies.”

    On ELO’s “Mr. Blue Sky,” Gunn said:

    “I’ve always said that if the Guardians had a house band, it would be ELO, and ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ is one of my favorite songs by them. We had a hard time getting the rights. We had to really fight to get the song, and I personally appealed to Jeff Lynne.”

    The article says Lynne approved a song for the first movie but Gunn ultimately cut it, making it all the more difficult to acquire the rights this time around. Of this, Gunn says, “I think we made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.”

    Despite Silver’s “Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang” being a one hit wonder song, Gunn saw a good reason to share it with Marvel fans who may not be aware of its existence:

    “One of the most exciting things, was knowing I would be making bands that may have been forgotten suddenly be a topic of conversation.”

    Gunn says that the music in the film is a representation of Peter’s mom:

    “She’s a music lover, but she’s completely not elitist. If it’s something that’s thought of as goofy and pop, she likes it. If it’s cool or funk, she likes it. She just likes hooks and melodies. She’s a very quirky, young girl who fell in love with, you know, as it ends up, an alien. And falling in love with an alien is right up there in Meredith Quill’s alley. She’s an oddball, like her son.”

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5, 2017.
