All 26 Songs from the Crazy Heart Soundtrack

Here are all 26 songs from the Crazy Heart soundtrack with notes on each scene they were in and in the order they appeared in the movie. Let me just say that this is a brilliant soundtrack. T. Bone Burnett has never steered us wrong, and he certainly doesn’t here.

Don’t be fooled by the description of the movie as the story of a country singer. It doesn’t matter whether or not you like country music – you will love this music and this movie. It’s good ole school bluesy country that speaks truth and heartache all in the same.

The movie kicks off in a bowling alley. I could not help but think the dude abides. And he does. Jeff Bridges was awesome. Who knew the man could channel Waylon Jennings? And not just the hat and glasses – he sounds damn good too. As does Ryan Bingham, who backs Bridges up in the bowling alley and sings the definitive version of The Weary Kind, the theme song from Crazy Heart, that won the Golden Globe for best original song.

I don’t know how many people are going to end up seeing Crazy Heart. Certainly not as many as should. This was a great film with one of the best soundtracks of 2009. This is kicking the year off right. Fallin’ & Flyin’, Hold on You, Brand New Angel and The Weary Kind are the right kind of music for me. Enjoy.

The Crazy Heart soundtrack album has a good number of the songs from the movie, but you can find them all below. I was able to identify 29 out of the 30 scenes with songs in them (some of the songs are used a couple times). If you know the unknown scene below, please let me know in the comments.
