Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Soundtrack · 2014
Central to Guardians of the Galaxy's tone and plot is its soundtrack. A mix of '70s tunes bequeathed to Quill by his late mother, it's the hero's only reminder of home. Blue Suede's strutting version of "Hooked on a Feeling" mirrors Quill's shoot-from-the-hip swagger. It's joined by chestnuts like Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky," Elvin Bishop's "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," and 10cc's "I'm Not in Love."
