Guardians of the Galaxy is tearing up the box office thanks to its mix of outrageous comedy and action, and it's mix-tape of old-school music played on an old-school walkman. The look and feeling is retro, it's classic, and best of all, it's something you can emulate on your iPhone!
Ultra-Case Walkman case for iPhone
The first step is to get your iPhone looking like a classic walkman. Since Sony, tragically, doesn't offer official Walkman brand cases for the iPhone, the best we can do is something that pays homage to the look as best it can.
Once you've got your iPhone looking like a Walkman, the next step is to make iOS look like a cassette tape. Luckily, in an App Store with a million apps, there are more than a few cassette-themed music player options to choose from. AirCasette is one of them and offers both the base cassette look, and a one-time an in-app purchase for additional cassette looks.
Of course, what good is looking like an old-school Walkman if you don't have the old-school jams to go with it? Get Hooked on a Feeling, Go All the Way, Spirit in the Sky, Moonage Daydream, Fooled Around and Fell in Love, I'm Not in Love, I Want You Back, Come and Get Your Love, Cherry Bomb, Escape, O-O-H- Child, and Ain't No Mountain High Enough, all in one awesome Guardians of the Galaxy Mix
