James Gunn’s soundtrack for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the most popular movie soundtracks of 2014. It was just so awesome on so many levels, and it played a huge part of the story that he wanted to tell in the movie. We will eventually get a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 mix tape for the upcoming sequel, but before that, fans will be treated with Guardians Of The Galaxy: Cosmic Mix Vol. 1, which is the soundtrack for the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series coming to Disney XD. That soundtrack includes a collection of songs from the 1970 and 1980s, which is the same musical era that we were treated to with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1. These are all great tracks and you can listen to them in the SoundCloud embed. Below that, you’ll find the full press release Marvel sent out.
