James Gunn has unveiled Meredith Quill’s official mixtape that she left to her son, Peter Quill, in Guardians of the Galaxy.
The director of the movies opened up in a new Instagram about how he wasn’t ever going to share this playlist.
“Today, I added Meredith Quill’s Complete Awesome Mix to my Spotify account for you to enjoy,” James writes. “This is part of the list of songs Meredith Quill loved that I chose the songs for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol’s 1 and 2 soundtracks from.”
He adds that “some of these songs almost made it into the movie (‘She’s Gone’) and others I always wanted to use but could never find the right place for them.”
“Whatever the case, I never intended on sharing these songs, as I might use them in future movies. But I think the need for all of us to have some joyousness in these difficult times outweighs all that,” James shared.
