The track listing for Guardians of the Galaxy’s Awesome Mix Vol. 2 has been revealed, and like the first volume, it’s truly awesome. Also it’s stuffed with classic-rock favorites!
As expected, after powering a pair of trailers, Fleetwood Mac‘s “The Chain” is on there. So are Electric Light Orchestra, who check in with “Mr. Blue Sky,” Sweet‘s “Fox on the Run,” George Harrison‘s “My Sweet Lord” and Cheap Trick, who contribute “Surrender.”
And like the first volume’s ’70s-packed track listing of irresistible one-hit wonders (especially Blue Swede’s “Hooked on a Feeling” and Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love”), Vol. 2 features a couple of its own, Looking Glass’ “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” and Silver’s “Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang.”
Also showing up is Cat Stevens‘ moving “Father and Son,” which will probably underline a pivotal scene — if we’re reading those trailers correctly — when hero Star-Lord (played by Chris Pratt) meets his long-lost dad (Guardians newcomer Kurt Russell). A cassette filled with ’70s songs left to Star-Lord by his mother played a part in the first movie’s plot.
Guardians of the Galaxy’s Awesome Mix Vol. 2 follows a cast-assembled mixtape that came out a couple weeks ago that featured ZZ Top‘s “Sharp Dressed Man,” David Bowie‘s “The Prettiest Star” and the Rolling Stones‘ “Gimme Shelter.”
The album will be available on April 21. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5.
