Music from the movie Hancock

I apologize for the delay in getting the Hancock soundtrack up – I was away on vacation with the family and could not snag the time to make it to the movie. It’s up now.

And the music in the movie Hancock does not disappoint. It is a great mix of rap (Ludacris, Ice-T, Roots, T-Ray), blues (three songs from John Lee Hooker), reggae/zydeco (Doctor Alimantado and J. Geils Band) as well as Ryan Adams, Freddy Fender and others. There are 22 songs in all, but alas, the studio did not feel obliged to put any of the songs on the soundtrack they released. All score by John Powell.

Now don’t get me wrong, the score is fine, but the movie is defined in a number of key moments by the music in it. There are hundreds of people asking questions about the following scenes, a sure sign that there would have been interest in a real soundtrack. Not to worry, you can find the videos and downloads for all the songs from Hancock at ReelSoundtrack.

Most asked questions about songs in Hancock:

Opening credits – Whammer Jammer by J. Geils Band
Sleeping on the bench – Highway 13 by John Lee Hooker
SUV chase scene – 900 # by 45 King
Prison scene – Colors by Ice-T
Hancock in his trailer -Water from the Same Source by Rachel’s
End credits – Here I Come by Roots featuring Malik B. and Dice Raw

And here’s a taste of the music from the movie:

Best Dressed Chicken in Town by Doctor Alimantado:

Colors by Ice-T:
