Can we just take a second to Marvel at this?
If there’s one thing Marvel do well it’s choosing music that fits perfectly with their films and characters. With just the opening riffs of an AC/DC song we know Iron Man is about to make an appearance and a witty comment is on its way. And where this is most successful is in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ soundtracks.
Both Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 use music in a way that means each song isn’t just there for pacing purposes. It’s there because it has a meaning. In the first instalment the songs are on a mixtape that is given to Peter Quill- Starlord -as a gift. They’re tied to him, his emotions, and so are a necessary part of the story. But they also are used as a comedic device; the timing of the songs fits perfectly with little quips, and sarcastic witticisms and when paired with the brilliant comedic timing of the actors they elevate the film soundtrack from average -like Suicide Squads- to genius.
The decision to use songs that are old but classics – ‘Cherry bomb’ by The Runaways for example – makes for an inclusive soundtrack. It appeals to different generations and acts as a temporal placement to give more information to the storyline. The playlist is packed full of brilliance.
But what we’re really here to talk about is Vol.2 because that’s what’s fresh. Really, it’s a work of genius. The second instalment in the saga is much more emotive and relies less on the comedic abilities of the actors. That’s not to say that the comedy isn’t there- it is and it’s done well- but it’s done in a measured way that allows for the sadder moments, the moments of confusion and anguish, to really shine through. And the entire way through the soundtrack carries us on this journey.
To really get to the heart of why the soundtrack works so well I’m going to have to include a spoiler, but don’t worry I’ll give you a warning so you can skip that section.
For me the soundtrack works because there’s a softness to the songs chosen, and a natural ebb and flow in both the music and the emotions of the film. Let’s take Fleetwood Mac and ‘The Chain’ – the song starts of softer and then progresses, picks up pace, with the bass notes really coming out towards the end. The song has a natural progression that fits perfectly with the story.
The death of a certain blue character in the film is treated with tenderness and the scene is paired perfectly with the song ‘Father and Son’ by Cat Stevens; the entire sequence leading up to, and the musical choice, is done so excruciatingly well as to bring tears to people’s eyes. The soft guitar, the lyrics and the vocals all swell and build and just exemplify the way that Marvel are really raising the standard.
Oh, and also that other scene with Groot and ‘Mr Blue Sky’. You know. That scene. (Listen, I don’t want it to be too spoiler heavy.)
And this is without even mentioning the pieces that were created just for the film. Whilst some of the music is taken from existing pools of pure brilliance and nostalgic playlists, the pieces created specifically for the film are also some of the best in existence. (These are also on the Spotify playlist. I swear this isn’t a sponsored piece. But if you don’t to resort to spotify there’s Amazon Music. Or maybe you can buy it. It’s sure to be available somewhere.)
Basically, the soundtrack is great. I would definitely recommend that everyone take a listen and also watch the film. And maybe when you do that come back and let us know what you think of it.
