awesome mix!

Star Lord, your mother had excellent taste in music.

Yeah, I have Guardians of the Galaxy on my mind.  Loved the first movie, can't wait to see the sequel tonight.

One of the best parts of the first movie was the music.  Star Lord's most prized possession is his Walkman and the awesome mix tape his mother made for him. It keeps him connected to his mother, and to his home on Earth.

The music on the mix tape is all from the 1960's and 1970's.  The music from my childhood and teen years!  Blue Swede's "Hooked On A Feeling".   The Raspberries' "Go All The Way".  The Runaways' "Cherry Bomb".  And, of course, "The Pina Colada Song".

All heavenly sounds right there on my iPod.

At the end of the movie, as you may recall, Star Lord opens the last gift his mother gave him, and finds another awesome mix tape.

The second awesome mix tape became available on iTunes this week.  You know I had to, simply had to, download it.

Looking Glass, "Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)".  The Sweet, "Fox On The Run".  Fleetwood Mac, "The Chain".  Cheap Trick, "Surrender".  Glen Campbell, "Southern Nights".

Wow.

Brought my iPod with me when I went over to the high school to walk on the track the other night.

I didn't walk...I strutted.  Caught the beat of the music, and off I went.

I can't wait to see the movie.

And hear this song:

You'll have to give us a review of the movie.
