Guardians

GALAXY QUEST: What do you get when you combine Marvel’s record-breaking new superhero adventure with an eclectic batch of classic-rock and retro-pop gems? Another major soundtrack for Disney, it seems. Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Vol. 1 is benefiting from the film’s monster box-office bow—but also from its foregrounding of songs like Blue Swede’s “Hooked on a Feeling” and the Five Stairsteps’ “O-O-H Child”—to hurtle toward the Top 5 in its first week, possibly debuting as high as 50k. The soundtrack hit #1 at iTunes in 22 global markets (including the U.S., of course) and Top 5 in 37. That’s pretty Groot. Er, great. (8/4a)
