The sci-fi spectacular is already breaking records and winning rave reviews, but it also has a fantastic soundtrack featuring brilliant songs from various genres.
Here is a handy list of all the songs featured in the film to make for another awesome mix.
1. Dear Mr. Fantasy - Traffic
The first song is played before the movie starts, playing over the Marvel Studios logo. The lyrics go: "Do anything, take us out of this gloom," alluding the previous film's depressing end.
2. Supersonic Rocketship - The Kinks
The Kinks' tune plays when Scott Lang/Ant-Man is trying to eat his lunch, and carries on as Rocket Raccoon and Hulk head to New Asgard. The song's lyrics have a hopeful tone, which is similar to the new optimism the Avengers faced as they start planning their time travel operation.
3. Doom and Gloom - The Rolling Stones
Next, when Thor returns to the Avengers and Rocket is repairing his ship, we hear this modern Rolling Stones track. The lyrics include the apt: "Guess it just reflects my mood/Sitting in the dirt/Feeling kind of hurt."
4. Come and Get Your Love - Redbone
The next song is heard when the Avengers start traveling back in time, and it's a callback to Guardians of the Galaxy, as Nebula and Rhodey spy on Peter Quill/Star-Lord as he listens to his Walkman.
5. Hey Lawdy Mama - Steppenwolf
When Tony Stark/Iron Man and Steve Rogers/Captain America travel back to 1970, we hear this classic rock track, which is played when Stan Lee makes his final MCU cameo.
6. It's Been a Long, Long Time - Harry James And His Orchestra with Kitty Kallen
The most emotional music scene is where Steve decides to stay in the past and live out his days with lost love Peggy Carter. The song plays as the camera moves into a suburban home, with Steve and Peggy finally having that dance.
