“Awesome Mix Vol.2” Suggestions

Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favourite movies of this generation for many reasons. Among those reasons is the fantastic soundtrack. The cinematic music is fine for the action, but it’s Starlord’s “Awesome Mix Vol.1” that puts new context into classic tunes for me that I couldn’t appreciate as a teenager.

Listening to my local classic hit radio station has had my imagination anticipate what the movie’s sequel could include in Starlord’s “Awesome Mix Vol.2”. So, I decided to share some of my picks.

 

Boston – More Than A Feeling

I can’t think of a better song to reminisce about listening to Awesome Mix Vol.1

 

 

Trooper – We’re Here For A Good Time

I picture this track being in an RNR-type of situation with the Guardians. Or even a return of morale to the team.

 

 

ABBA – Knowing Me, Knowing You

Starlord wallows in despair in front of a twin-sunset as some relationship, with maybe a teammate, falls through for a time.

 

 

Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb

Floating in space either alone, or in his ship, The Marion, which has run out of fuel and they’re waiting on help from, perhaps Nova Core.

 

 

Red Rider – Lunatic Fringe

Montage of the Guardians hunting down Nebula, or even Thanos.

 

 

The Ronettes – Be My Baby

Starlord and Gamora have a chance to dance with each other, which probably ends with Starlord’s ego ruining it.

 

 

Bill Landford & The Landfordaires – Run On For A Long Time

Can be used similar to Red Rider’s song, but I picture this being the last track in the movie when The Marion takes off to hunt down Thanos.

 

 

Harry Chapin – Cat’s In The Cradle

A great track that can be used similar to the ABBA track, but since Starlord never knew his father, applies better here.

 

Now, the music in the first movie didn’t necessarily match what was happening on screen, but I believe the tunes can definitely touch on themes relating to Starlord’s character.

Even if none of these tracks make it to Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2, I’m sure Starlord’s new mix will be pleasant to our ears.

Boom.

P.S.

“Some Kind Of Wonderful” (by, I think, Grand Funk Railroad) would be a great song as well. Maybe an Annie Lennox track.
