All 22 songs from Inglourious Basterds Soundtrack


Tarantino takes 22 songs from classic movies to create the soundtrack to Inglourious Basterds. You can find all of them here. Only half of them are on the official soundtrack album to Inglourious Basterds.

This movie was brilliant. Brad Pitt doing an Tennesee accent of an EYE-talian accent was fantastic. I also dare you to look at a Bowie knife or a baseball bat in the same way. If only reality could have played out Inglourious Basterds style and we would have (SPOILER ALERT) taken Hitler out in a burnt down, blown up, machine gun riddled theater.

I am digging on this soundtrack too. In fact, through most of the movie, I was scribbling furiously, trying to figure out whether individual songs were tributes to old scores or actual songs themselves. I recognized Ennio Morricone’s iconic style, as well as David Bowie’s song Cat People, but most of the other songs were unknown to me.

Update: Billboard has a great interview with Quentin Tarantino discussing how he picked out the music for Inglorious Basterds from the record room in house.

There were only a handful of songs with lyrics, including the German music played in the tavern. The rest were instrumentals that mixed hollow guitar, piano, horns, drums and even a bit of twang. The music was perfect for the movie, and set the tone for the film.

Here’s the complete list of songs from the movie in the order they appeared in the film:

  • The Green Leaves of Summer – Nick Perito – From the movie The Alamo
  • The Verdict – Ennio Morricone – From the movie The Big Gundown
  • L’incontro Con La Figlia – Ennio Morricone – From the movie The Return of Ringo

  • The Surrender (La resa) – Ennio Morricone – From the movie The Big Gundown
  • One Silver Dollar (Un Dollaro Bucato) – Gianni Ferrio – From the movie Blood for a Silver Dollar
  • Bath Attack – Charles Bernstein – From the movie The Entity
  • Davon geht die Welt nicht unter – Zarah Leander – From the movie Die große Liebe
  • The Man With The Big Sombrero – June Havoc – From the movie Hi Diddle Diddle
  • Ich wollt ich wär ein Huhn – Lilian Harvey and Willy Fritsch – From the movie Glückskinder
