All 11 Songs from the Legion Soundtrack

There are 11 songs in the movie Legion but the soundtrack album for Legion only has the score on it. You can find all 11 songs here, as well as notes on the scenes they were in. John Frizzell, who also crafted the music for Henry Poole is Here, White Out and Thirteen Ghosts, provided the score for the movie.

The music mostly plays on the diner jukebox during the movie, so it’s a mix of Willie Nelson, Ann-Margaret, Merle Haggard and the like. However, there are a couple other musical scenes as well. King Juju plays when Tyrese is driving toward the diner at the beginning of the movie. And The Showdown razes the scene when the possessed are swarming the minivan that stops to get some gas.

I actually had a bit of a hard time placing the scenes that many of the other songs were in. Definitely could use some help here.

As for the movie itself, at first I was worried that I might have a hard time believing Paul Bettany as a badass angel gone bad by going good, but he was spot on. In fact, I wish I had a copy of the scene in the middle of the movie where he was talking to Jeep about faith and hope. It was the most poignant part of the movie, and was a highlight of the post-apocalyptic movie-fest we are experiencing these days.

Here’s the complete list of songs from Legion in the order they appeared in the movie with notes on many of the scenes.

  1. I agree with you about Bettany and the scene you metioned but other than that scene the movie was horribly written.Tyrese Gibson’s character talked like what a white screenwriter who had never met a black man might think said black man might speak.The scene where he and Willa Holland are on the roof had me cackling at the ineptitude of the writer. He begins a speech with “Back when I was a shortie…” WTF? C’mon now. and in the scene he shares with Charles Dutton on the roof, you can see the pain in Dutton’s eyes as he delivers the crappy dialogue. I can hear him thinking, “Just say the damn lines and get the paycheck” over and over in his head.
