'Awesome Mix' Is No. 1 On Billboard 200 Album Chart

KELLY MCEVERS, HOST:

And our last word in Business is - awesome. The "Awesome Mix Volume 1" is, for the second week in a row, number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

This is the soundtrack for Marvel's blockbuster space opera, "Guardians Of The Galaxy." What's unusual is that the songs on the album are - well, they're kind of old.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "HOOKED ON A FEELING")

UNIDENTIFIED SINGER: (Singing) Hooked on a feeling. I'm high on believing...

GREENE: What up, 1974?

MCEVERS: Yeah. All the songs are from the 60s and 70s. And last week according to Nielsen SoundScan, the compilation sold 93,000 copies.

GREENE: I am guessing digital copies and CDs, but probably no eight-tracks - or, maybe.

MCEVERS: Cassettes?

GREENE: Old.
