In Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Meredith Quill put together a mix tape she titled Awesome Mix Vol. 1 so her son Peter could know all the songs she used to listen to when she was growing up. The film incorporated the songs on the mixtape in Quill's Walkman and the album became America's second best-selling soundtrack of 2014.

What is your favorite song from Awesome Mix Vol. 1?

hooked on a feeling...spirit in the sky...oooh child...too many good ones...

but my vote goes for 10cc- 'i'm not in love...

(...suggestion to the movie producers for volume three...two songs from the chi-lites...'oh girl' and 'have you seen her'...)

Since very few of your options have photos, maybe you could consider making it an image list instead? The same goes for the other list.

Yes, I was thinking about that too. But what kind of images? Random stills from Guardian of the Galaxy? But then people will expect that the song corresponds to the scene on the image, and it's very difficult, if not impossible to find an image from each scene when that particular song is actually played in the movie. I don't know...

I don't think it will be a problem. People will still vote for the song if you write the name of the song and artist in each entry.

i'm totally clueless when it comes to the 'image options' on here, but isn't it possible just to put an album cover image from each band in question...

This could benefit from a new image list like part II of the poll.

Hi leavey, if you happen to see this, can you check out your discussion thread to your Ron Howard poll? Thanks. : )

Oh, and good poll here. (List 1: "My Sweet Lord;" List 2: "Ooh Child")

Gaurdian of the Galaxy's Awesome Mix Vol. 1 and 2 ranks right up there with Reservoir Dog's K-Billy's Super Sounds of the Seventies.

10CC I'm Not in Love and Looking Glass Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)
get my votes, respectively.
