Music has always been an important part of a film and can easily make or break a scene. They compliment the story and can add an unconscious emotional component. One of the clear main points in the Marvel film ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ is that Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, is very protective about his music. As an ex-Earther that is now stuck in space, his music is his only tie to home and today we not only found out what’s on his mix tape but also what will be on the film’s soundtrack!

In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ the music seems to mirror the tone of the film – it’s just plan fun to listen. These songs will help make each of the high points in the film happen and now you can see and hear what songs will be in the film early.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ starring Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, and Michael Rooker blasts off on August 1st, 2014.
