It’s no secret that the Guardians of the Galaxy films have incredible soundtracks. With hits like ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ and ‘I Want You Back’ leading the way on the soundtrack for the first film and ‘The Chain’ and ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ shining bright in the second film, the soundtrack for the highly anticipated third GOTG entry cannot come soon enough.
Recently, James Gunn was asked about the progress for the Guardians 3 soundtrack and he responded by saying that his current song list for the film is at 181 songs. On top of that, Gunn said that the soundtrack could “get longer” as time goes on.
That number should actually come as no surprise really. I’m sure everyone has seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 by now but if you haven’t, extremely minor spoilers follow. In the film, Kraglin gives Peter Quill a Zune and tells him that it has around 300 songs on it. While unconfirmed, it can be safely assumed that Quill will hold onto the Zune heading into Guardians 3 which means even more songs for the upcomig ‘Awesome Mix Vol. 3.’
