Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2


 

If 2017’s movies will be remembered for anything, it’s probably going to be their soundtracks. Even when the movies themselves haven’t been up to snuff, 2017 has seen a surplus of great soundtracks and scores, from films like Wonder Woman (which boasted an incredible score by Rupert Gregson-Williams) to the live-action Beauty in the Beast (a musical that’s currently the highest grossing film of the year), this year’s films have been defined by their music. And the two most notable among them? Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver and James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

So how did these two music-driven films not overlap? It started when Wright realized that he and Gunn’s film would be coming out at around the same time. The two are friends, so Wright reached out to make sure there were no issues. The way he tells it is pretty hilarious, and you can check out the full story right here, from an interview with KPCC, a radio station in SoCal:

“Earlier this year, before Guardians 2 had come out, I suddenly had a panic, I thought, Oh, what if one of my Baby Driver songs are in Guardians 2? So I texted him and we had this funny text conversation…where I said: ‘Hey man I was just panicking that some of my Baby Driver songs are in Guardians 2’. And he goes, ‘Well, do you have any ELO?’ And I was like, ‘No. Do you have any Queen?’ He said, ‘No. Do you have any Sweet?’ And I said, ‘No. Do you have any Barry White?’ And he goes, ‘No. I was going to use a Barry White song but I didn’t.’ And I said, ‘Well I’m using Barry White.’ Neither of us divulged what the song was… we just went back and forth, and then we figured out that neither of us were using the same songs.”

Thankfully, both films were allowed to move forward uninterrupted, but it’s always fun to hear these behind-the-scenes stories about seemingly innocuous details. If you haven’t yet, go see Baby Driver in theaters now!

This Is How Baby Driver & Guardians 2 Avoided Each Other’s Soundtracks

The two music-heavy films almost ran into some problems in regards to their respective soundtracks!
