ELO, Cheap Trick, & Fleetwood Mac Featured On New ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Soundtrack

Music News

As expected, the soundtrack to the second Guardians Of The Galaxy soundtrack is teeming with ’70s classics, and is sure to be a major seller the way the first volume was. Highlights on the set include Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky,” Cheap Trick’s “Surrender,” Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain,” George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord,” Sweet’s “Fox On The Run,” Looking Glass’ “Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl),” and Glen Campbell’s “Southern Nights,” among others — including a few ’60s hits, too.

Although ELO’s Jeff Lynne as about as British as they come — he explained why nearly all of his songs sound as if they’re sung by an American: “It’s just that when you start, all the records you learn, listen to and learn, they’re all singing in this twang — like a dialect. Y’know, it sounds so cool with music put to it. But when you start doing it, like somebody who’s very posh or something, it just doesn’t have any — it just sounds wrong. So we all tend to go onto the American dialect.”
