The Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol.1 Soundtrack is Free to Download Today!
Guardians of the Galaxy's Awesome Mix Volume 1 is undoubtedly the movie soundtrack of the year, and now it's available to download for free! A couple of caveats though, the offer is only open to Google Play customers in the US, although Google Play customers in Canada can download the album for the bargain price of 99 cents.
Featuring some of the greatest songs of the 70's and 80's, Peter Quill's Awesome Mix Volume 1. helped set the tone for what was one of the most enjoyable Marvel movies, ever. From Blue Suede's 'Hooked on a Feeling' which featured heavily on the movie's promotional material, to Redbone's 'Come and Get Your Love', the album offers up hit after hit and will make you wonder why you hadn't thought to combine these songs onto a playlist before.
It took a little over a month after the movie's August release for the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack to move to Gold status, but its impact was felt far earlier with the record securing top spot on the Billboard 200 charts by August 13th. Though it still lags some way behind the Frozen soundtrack in terms of sales figures, Awesome Mix Volume 1. is still a record of epic proportions. So, do yourself a favor and download it now!
Incidentally, Guardians of the Galaxy is released on DVD and Blu-Ray December 9th.
