More from Movies

We can all agree that one of the best things about Guardians of the Galaxy was the memorable soundtrack—or more formally named “Awesome Mix.” Director James Gunn himself handpicked each track to match the emotion and tone of the movie—and he did a stellar job!

Though they were hits to begin with, the songs weren’t as popular as when they were first released. But due to the universal acclaim of the film, the soundtrack itself also became a phenomenon.

Via Rolling Stone (of course), we have the much anticipated soundtrack list for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, or Awesome Mix Vol. 2. Like the first film, it contains quite a number of past hits that Gunn personally handpicked:

  1. “Mr. Blue Sky” by Electric Light Orchestra
  2. “Fox on the Run” by Sweet
  3. “Lake Shore Drive ” by Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah
  4. “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac
  5. “Bring it On Home to Me” by Sam Cooke
  6. “Southern Nights” by Glen Campbell
  7. “My Sweet Lord” by George Harrison
  8. “Brandy You’re a Fine Girl” by Looking Glass
  9. “Come a Little Bit Closer” by Jay and the Americans
  10. “Wham Bang Shang-A-Lang” by Silver
  11. “Surrender” by Cheap Trick
  12. “Father and Son” by Yusuf
  13. “Flashlight” by Parliament
  14. “Guardians Inferno” by The Sneepers (featuring David Hasselhoff) Co-Written by James Gunn and Composed by Tyler Bates

To top everything off, we also have a poster of Baby Groot presenting the songs as a set list.
