“Guardians” movie buffs, as Disney put it, know the films’ connections to great music.

Peter Quill, a.k.a. “Star-Lord,” is a huge music lover.

The movies feature fun, classic pop songs — so it’s no surprise that Disney Imagineers decided “Cosmic Rewind” riders should coast along to some epic tunes.

But ride creators had their work cut out for them — having to whittle down a list of more than 100 songs to a mere six.

Disney said its team rode the attraction over and over until they landed on the right playlist.

Drum roll, please...

Here is the “Awesome Mix” of songs to be featured on “Cosmic Rewind”:

  • “September”
  • “Disco Inferno”
  • “Conga”
  • “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”
  • “I Ran”
  • “One Way or Another”

There is a catch. Disney said riders won’t know which music track they’ll hear until each blast off with the Guardians, where they can expect “an intergalactic chase through time and space.”
