Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 , is #1 on The Billboard album chart.
Take that in for a second.
The film soundtrack is #1 on the Billboard album chart. No big deal you say? After all the soundtrack to Frozen sold a gazillion copies, and went to #1.
The difference is that the soundtrack isn't made up of a bunch of awful kiddie tunes, disguised as pop music. Even better, it isn't full of songs about Bubba and his truck and his six pack and his girl in shorts down by the river bank in a small town.
It's real music. From real musicians. Here's the partial track listing.
Hooked on a Feeling - Blue Swede
Go All the Way - The Raspberries
Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
Fooled Around And Fell in Love - Elvin Bishop
I'm Not in Love - 10cc
I Want You Back - Jackson 5
Come and Get Your Love - Redbone
Kind of offers a bit of hope doesn't it? Just don't tell the kids it's not new. Maybe they'll finally come to their senses!
