Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Peter Quill was how old when he made that tape or had it gifted to him?

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Depends on when he was born. The character in the comics would be 5-10 years older than me if he aged normally; so, about 60. Most of those songs come from the early-to-mid 70s. The most recent of them is the "Pina Colada" song (my least favorite on the list) and came out in either 79 or 80, if memory serves.

That would put him in his 40s, give or take.

That came up in my 70s Music thread a bit back...it had the dubious distinction of being the last #1 single of the 70s, as I recall.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

For the recrod though, that's not BJ Thomas' version of Hooked On A Feeling, so the tape could've been put together in the late '80s.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

It could have been put together yesterday. However, if it was the 80s, chances are he'd have more 80s hits on there. Younger kids aren't really known for their preference for their parent's musical tastes.

How young are we talking about? 12 or 14 years old is when I tend to think of people really getting their own independent taste in music. 8-10 not so much.

Hey, I had a mix cassette tape just like that when I was that age. Mostly Queen tracks mixed in with the likes of Jive Bunny, Bomb the Bass, Pink Floyd and this little gem as I recall.

One of the benefits of having three older brothers, each with their own tape deck and individual taste in music. So yeah, it seems perfectly credible to me.

Well, seeing as how I'm roughly the same age as the character, I can definitely say I never put a mix tape of mostly 70's music. I was busy "stealing" modern hits off the radio instead. And Hell, I wasn't even living in the United States (my father was stationed in Western Germany around then) and we still had easy access to American hits of the time.

We're talking the late 80s here. If it's more like ~80-83 it makes a lot more sense. And that certainly fits more closely with what little we've seen.

Well, i've hated most music I've heard made since 1990 (when I was born), not counting stuff by people I like who started before I was born but are still active (like weird Al), and a few random songs every once and a while. Most of the stuff I listen to is 60s-80s, and a large percentage of it is stuff my Dad also likes (although he also likes a good deal of stuff I don't like). So, music taste isn't always limited to stuff that comes out when you're young or as you're growing up, and not everyone grows up enjoying the music that is popular at the time.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

This is a stereotypical character from a stereotypical time period, and he's fully intended to represent the era he was abducted from. It'd be like Marty McFly listening to Perry Como rather than Huey Lewis and the News.

So, again, the mix tape could have been made yesterday, in 2004, in 1997, or 1989, but it's far more likely that it was made in or around 1980.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

The walkman and the music are Quill's only connection to earth and his parents, it hardly matters what kind of music it is.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

We were trying to establish when his abduction occurred, not what kind of music it was. We already know exactly what kind of music it was thanks to the soundtrack.

From the movie's Wiki article.

The leader of the Guardians who was abducted from Missouri as a child in the mid-1980s and raised by a group of thieves and smugglers called the Ravagers.

I always assumed that the tape was probably his father's.
