One of the biggest hit albums of the past year was an unlikely soundtrack album filled with classic top 40 songs from the 70's, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1.
While we are yet to get a volume two, Hollywood Records and Marvel Music are releasing a new 70's compilation tied in with their new Disney XD animated version of Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Mix Vol. 1 includes hits from such artists as The James Gang (twice!), Joe Walsh, Dobie Gray, Thin Lizzy, Three Dog Night and Gloria Gaynor along with the repeating, as the opening cut, of Blue Swede's version of Hooked on a Feeling.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will premier on Saturday, September 26 at 9:30 PM with a one-hour special. The new soundtrack album will be out on October 16.
