Guardians of the Galaxy has its flaws, but its one of the few films of 2014 where my mind kept drifting back to it and all the scenes I loved. It’s easily one of the most enjoyable films of the year, and part of the enjoyment comes from its delightful soundtrack. It’s not that all of the songs are great (“The Pina Colada Song” plays on a loop in Hell), but they gave the movie its own vibe and atmosphere.
However, what we got in the film wasn’t the original, uncut “Awesome Mix: Vol. 1″. Director and co-writer James Gunn has revealed the full set-list, which includes some fun songs that didn’t end up in the movie such as Cheap Trick’s “Surrender” and Three Dog Night’s “Never Been to Spain”. Hit the jump for the full setlist and to learn how Gunn settled on the final soundtrack.
