In an interview with NME, Star Lord (Chris Pratt) has spoken about ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ and what makes the soundtrack so ‘awesome’.
(Interviewer) the soundtrack is awesome…
“Yeah, it’s really good man. I daresay it’s better than the first one. There’s some really deep cuts on it man: George Harrison, Cat Stevens, Fleetwood Mac, a bunch of kind of lesser-known songs. It’s pretty cool when a soundtrack from the 70’s comes out because there are people who lived with those songs, grew up with those songs, they’re familiar, they bring back this sense of sentimentality. And there’s going to be a whole new generation that’s hearing these songs for the first time, and for those artists it’s really great to have their work exposed to a whole new audience and, you know, for them to have another big moment again with the songs that have since come and gone, or seemingly come and gone. So that’s pretty cool, we’re really proud of the music. James [Gunn] does a good job of threading the music in and making it – using it as a narrative tool to help tell the story. It’s a big part of our movie, it takes centre stage quite a few times.”
What would you say your favourite track is?
“Man, that’s a good question. I think probably the Cat Steven’s song ‘Father and Son’ at the end, that’s the one that moves me the most, got me most emotional.”
If there was one classic track you’d like to see in the next movie, what would do you think it would be?”
“Man, I don’t know. Maybe some Michael Jackson. Maybe some Jackson 5 or Michael Jackson, that’d be kind of cool.”
