Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) has 12 of the most popular songs of the 70s. Director James Gunn shared that Music played a major role in Guardians of the Galaxy more than in any other Marvel movie to date. Based on the plot, the main character, Peter Quill has a compilation tape given to him by his mother. Full of her favorite songs, it’s the only connection he still has to earth. But what the music does for the story line, it also does for the audience in that it provides moviegoers with a sense of familiarity in a strange and foreign universe.
Working with Composer, Tyler Bates. Gunn used some of the score during filming, especially in the big emotional and action scenes giving the actors a better understanding of the musical tone of the movie.
