All 24 Fine Songs from the Brooklyn’s Finest Soundtrack

The Brooklyn’s Finest soundtrack has 24 songs, from Motown to Hip Hip, The Platters to Notorious B.I.G. There are a bunch of songs from The Evil Genious Green Lantern and Dead Prez, featuring folks like Busta Rhymes, Mavado and Johnny Polygon. It’s a good mix of tunes, even if Culture Club and The Rolling Stones may seem a bit out of place. Still, you can’t go wrong with the Isaac Hayes track off of Hot Buttered Soul, one of the best album names ever.

Too bad the soundtrack album for Brooklyn’s Finest doesn’t come out until three weeks after the movie is released. And even then, it looks like it is just going to have the score from Marcelo Zarvos. Not to worry, you can find almost all of the songs here in the order they appeared in the movie.

A non-musical note on the movie: Brooklyn’s Finest brings half the family from Training Day back for another gritty take on life as a cop – this time in the rough and tumble of Brooklyn. Ethan Hawke plays an Ethan Hawke cop. Richard Gere takes on the role of father cop. And you can never go wrong with Don Cheadle. Plus it’s good to see Wesley Snipes getting straight with the feds. It’s a good cast matched with some good songs.

Here’s the complete list of songs from Brooklyn’s Finest in the order they appeared in the movie. Check back for info on the scenes they were in (or pipe in below and I will add notes to the post).

  3. Yesterday i heard a remix of Henny and Bacardi by Cassidy on Wired 96.5 Philadelphia. I don’t remember the lines but i remember he said something like “I just grab the auto of my semi” Is there a remix to that song or can anyone find it?

  4. what is the name of the song being played while the white dude is struggling with the black guy where they have the three girls kidnapped

  5. Anyone know what was the name of the song playing in the scene when Richard Gere and the girl were getting it on? I liked it a lot but no idea which one it is. Sounded like a classic from some time back.

    • I also need to know this as it’s driving me crazy…i know the song just can’t remember who it was by or what it’s called…i know it’s from the 60’s or the 70’s…

    • Yes! I love tat song nd cannot find the name. It is from a few years back and would love to know the name.

  8. Anyone know what’s that first song (you hear only the instrumental) when they meet up in the stripclub around 79:00 .There’s a voice that sound kinda like 50 cent, but im not sure, i could only hear the beat. It comes up right before the Isaac Hayes song I think…

    • Is it NYDP? I was looking for the song with the good dance beat in the scene where Don Cheadle and Wesley Snipes are in their first scene together and their standing at the bar. It’s NYDP by Dead Prez. Don’t know if that’s the one you mean or not.

      • No not that scene, I’m talking about the one where Cheadle is introducing other dealers to Snipes and they meet up at the strip club. Right at the begining of the scene there’s an instrumental bumping while some girl is dancing, it’s a pretty quick part though…
