Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack

You’re already aware that _Awesome Mix Vol. 1_ is the best sound track this year but just in case you were unsure it’s been nominated for a Grammy award in the _Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media_ category, which is category 58 out of 10,006.

To be fair it does have some good competition in the _American Hustle_ soundtrack and _Wolf of Wall Street_ soundtrack as they’re both chock full of good tunes however neither they nor _Frozen_ or _Get On Up_ speak to the story of the film or the hearts and minds of the audience in quite the same way.

The 57th Grammy Awards are being held in LA on the 8th of February.

A story about teens, read by teens, starring teens, and now musically influenced by teens.  You can also exchange all of those “teens” for “females”.  Because make no mistake, the Hunger Games is blockbuster feminism for Generation Z.
