'Guardians of the Galaxy' Soundtrack a Great Experience

If you enjoyed the Marvel/Disney summer hit movie "Guardians of the Galaxy," and judging by the box office numbers you did, the soundtrack to the film is a must purchase.  The movie is nearing the $300 million domestic gross range and has nearly hit the $600 million world wide level, according to Box Office Mojo.  Those are some pretty impressive numbers.

Of course, those songs featured in the film, on Star Lord's tape Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol.1 are available as a set.  The 1970's music era does not really get a lot of love, but the movie shows just how powerful some of those songs really are.  My personal favorite is "Hooked on a Feeling."

Better still is the Guardians of the Galaxy Deluxe Soundtrack which features all the music from the film.  This one is a two disc set and features the compositions of Tyler Bates that can also be heard throughout the film.  All told, it's a great way to complete the Guardians experience, and eagerly await the Blu-ray, DVD, and sequel to the massive hit film.

I'm not sure what it is about the soundtrack, maybe it's because the songs are as much fun as the movie?  Still, it's a great way to relive the film without seeing it, and many of the songs will remind you of your own experiences in life.  Too cool.
