Guardians of the Galaxy introduced fans to the cosmic branch of the MCU, and it did so with some serious style. Beyond the film's amazing special effects and wonderful characters, Guardians had one unique component that really tied the story together: an amazing soundtrack.
Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 went platinum, was the #2 selling soundtrack of 2014 (topped only by Frozen), and achieved what most soundtracks failed to do: climbed to #1 on Billboard’s top 200. With the upcoming release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, fans have been waiting for the release of the next installment of the soundtrack. The wait is over, and the complete track listing for Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 2 has finally been released.

It's no surprise that Gunn included the song 'Mr Blue Sky,' since he was quoted as saying that if the Guardians of the Galaxy had an in-house band, it would be Electric Light Orchestra. Sam Cooke's classic track 'Bring It On Home To Me' is a perfect fit for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and continues the tradition of '60s soul music from the first film.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looks like it is going to be every bit as fun as the first film, and the world is readying itself to fall in love with Baby Groot. The Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 2 is an amazing compilation of songs, which you can pick up when it is released on April 21, 2017.
