“I swear, I've gotten angry with filmmakers like Ridley Scott and George Lucas who can't let go of their old films and want to keep going back and offering up different versions, but I can easily see myself doing that now,” James Gunn wrote on Facebook recently about "Guardians Of The Galaxy." “This is essentially my last week of actually making 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' It's been two years straight and I've starting to become terrified of actually having to STOP.”

Guardians of The Galaxy

“I swear, I've gotten angry with filmmakers like Ridley Scott and George Lucas who can't let go of their old films and want to keep going back and offering up different versions, but I can easily see myself doing that now,” James Gunn wrote on Facebook recently about "Guardians Of The Galaxy." “This is essentially my last week of actually making 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' It's been two years straight and I've starting to become terrified of actually having to STOP.”

Admitting he's getting “teary-eyed when I think of how I won't be working with Rocket,” Gunn can rest assured that 'Guardians' will be unique and distinct among this summer's tentpoles, particularly when it comes to the soundtrack. While other studios tend to play it safe with their expensive properties when it comes to tunes—Pharrell and OK Go tuning up "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," and Imagine Dragons writing exclusive (and boring) songs for "Transformers: Age Of Extinction"—this Marvel movie is offering up a mixtape of classic jams.

And so, fans everywhere will get their latest does of Marvel-verse mayhem with the tunes of David Bowie, Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, The Runaways and of course, Blue Swede, keeping things going. And frankly, it's nice to see a Marvel movie step away from the standard template to try something risky, whether it's the overall story, or even in the details like the songs. 

The soundtrack drops on July 29th with the movie arriving on August 1st. Tracklist and samples below. [Collector's Choice Music
