Guardians Of The Galaxy - Guardians Of The Galaxy Soundtrack Hits The Top Of The U.s. Album Chart

The Guardians Of The Galaxy soundtrack has shot to the top of the U.S. album chart.

The album, which debuted at three last week (06Aug14), becomes the second soundtrack to hit number one on the Billboard 200 this year (14), following the success of Frozen, but it's the first movie album full of old tracks to hit the top spot - all the songs on Awesome Mix Vol. 1 were recorded in the 1960s and 1970s.

Another compilation, the Now 51 album, debuts at two on the new countdown, and rockers Godsmack enter at three with 1000Hp.

Spoon make it a trio of new arrivals in the top five as they debut They Want My Soul at number four and last week's number one, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' Hypnotic Eye, falls to five.

On the singles chart, Canadian reggae-pop act Magic!'s performance at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday (10Aug14) appears to have given their song Rude at boost - it scores a fifth week atop the Billboard Hot 100, while Sam Smith lands a second consecutive week at two with Stay With Me, and Iggy Azalea's record-breaking former number one Fancy stays put at three.
