All 28 Songs in the Wall Street 2 Money Never Sleeps Soundtrack


There are 28 songs in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, but most of the songs play second fiddle to the 10 songs featuring David Byrne and Brian Eno in some form or fashion. The soundtrack album has but a small slice of the music from the movie – only 9 of the 28 songs from Wallstreet 2. But at least all the songs on the album are actually in the movie. There are no derivatives here, unlike most soundtrack albums these days, or the securities that the movie slams so vigorously.

In addition to the David Byrne and Brian Eno musical extravaganza, Wall Street 2 features songs from Centric House, Speed Caravan, Stigmato Inc and the Shiny Toy Guns, not to mention Ennio Morricone’s iconic score from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which serves as the best ring tone I have heard in a movie since Journey rang its way into Yes Man.

As for the movie itself, I can’t say that I was sold. I think Gordon Gekko’s speech about greed was a brilliant critique of the excesses and arrogance that got us into this mess. Indeed, the image of the gecko has come a long way since Gordon sullied the Gekko name in 1987. There also are a few cameo surprises that I enjoyed. But there were also a few characters/devices that I just missed completely. What the hell was the whistling bird thing? In classic Oliver Stone hit you across the forehead two-by-four style, the recurring kid bubbles were just a wee to blatant for me too. Of course, if the guys from Squawk Box had been a little more blatant in calling bullshit, maybe there would not have been a need for a sequel to Wall Street in the first place.

But I digress. We’re here to talk about the music, and there was a lot of it in this film. Here’s all 28 songs from Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps in the order they appeared in the movie and with notes on the scenes they were in. Enjoy it, before this little soundtrack bubble bursts.

  1. Can you help? Recently saw Wall Street Money Never Sleeps and trying to find some dance/ house type music (I don’t know what to call it). I remember hearing during the scene when the camera pans across the waterfront of New York city.

    • I know which one you mean. Im looking for it too.

    • I’m looking for that one too, and it’s played twice in the movie. I really hate when they throw in good tunes like that in movies and then it’s impossible to find them.

  2. Dear author,
    Thank You so much for the best ring tone name. Yes, finally.
    I couldn’t remember this but you gave me it’s name.
    Ennio Morricone’s The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

  3. what was the name of the ringtone that shia lebeouf(spel) had on his phone in wall street money never sleeps. i cant think of it and i want it. thanks

  4. [...] years and, in my opinion, gotten better with age. Some of his more recent work is featured in the soundtrack to Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, of which some of the songs are a collaboration between Byrne [...]

  5. I was looking all over the net for the song ricochet, thanks to this site I found it, shame it was not put on the soundtrack of the movie.

  6. Could’t find Reality Check song till I got here, thank you very much!

  7. Carousel Waltz sounded a lot like the Last Waltz written/played by The Band

  8. A SONG FOR WALL STREET
    To the tune of : “Clementine” !!!

    In the Valley
    Of the Bankers
    Locking elbows
    Marching FREE
    Rose a Sea of 99ers
    “GIVE US BACK–
    DEMOCRACY!!!”

    In the Valley
    Of the Slavers
    The Oppressors
    Of our Kin
    Rose a Sea of 99ers
    “WE WILL TAKE
    IT BACK AGAIN!!!”
