Music played a key role in Guardians of the Galaxy‘s success, with Peter Quill’s retro “Awesome Mix” playlists selling like hotcakes after each movie. You’ll have to wait a while for “Awesome Mix Vol. 3,” but director James Gunn has something to tide you over: his personal playlist.
Gunn shared his “Awesome Mix Vol. 0” on Twitter, available to stream on Spotify.
I finally got around to making a @Spotify playlist of Awesome Mix Vol. 0, the secret, personal mix I made to play on the set of @Guardians Vol. 1, especially for the drunken partying scenes in the Boot of Jemiah. Enjoy! https://t.co/XEPVmWKOh9— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 28, 2018
This is what he listened to while making Guardians of the Galaxy, but it’s a little different from what we heard in the movie. Rather than focusing on classic pop from the 1970s and ’80s, it includes more contemporary artists like My Chemical Romance and Andrew W.K. Does this tell us more about James Gunn’s personal music taste or what those alien pirate parties would sound like?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is currently in the works, written and directed once again by James Gunn. It’s scheduled for release in 2020, but Gunn has already selected most of the soundtrack songs. The playlist will apparently take inspiration from Yondu after the first two movies focused on music from Peter Quill’s mother.
