Coming off of an amazing debut in theaters, Billboard recently reported that Guardians of the Galaxy’s soundtrack (which is titled Awesome Mix Vol. 1) is looking to secure the top spot on the upcoming week’s Billboard 200 chart.
Multiple music experts are hypothesizing that the soundtrack may end up selling at least 100,000 copies by August 10. The album previously debuted at No. 3, as it sold more than 60,000 copies (Nielsen SoundScan).
If for some reason, Awesome Mix Vol. 1 succeeds in claiming the No. 1 spot, it will become the second soundtrack this year to accomplish that feat. The last soundtrack to do so was Frozen.
Either way, count me as one of the people who will be purchasing this album. One of the best parts of Guardians of the Galaxy was the fact that the soundtrack was downright amazing (and it didn’t hurt that it took me down memory lane on more than one occasion).
In fact, I love this soundtrack so much that I am going to post five of my favorite songs from the film down below.
