All 15 Songs from the Knight & Day Soundtrack

There are 15 songs in Knight & Day, ranging from Gotan Project to Hall & Oates, but the soundtrack album for the movie only has the score. We’re not satisfied with that result, so here’s the complete list of 15 songs from Knight & Day. We’ve thrown in videos and downloads for them to boot. Happy summer.

Good action, good comedy, good chemistry – I really liked this movie. Tom Cruise definitely proved that despite all the crazy he can still really carry a film. The music is a bit helter skelter and hard to place at times, but there are definitely some good tunes. Gotan Project serves as the musical backdrop for the first slice of film, as do a few other score tracks from other movies, such as Confident and The Taking of Pelham 123, the latter of which is a song called “An Ass Model Named Lavitka” by Harry Gregson-Williams. That has to be one of the most ridiculously badass names for a song I have ever heard.

Speaking of badassitude, my sincere hope is that people will also be trying to track down the song that the trucker was seeing when the plane crashed around him, because you can never – I say never – go wrong with the Scorpions. You can sometimes go wrong with The Black Eyed Peas, who are super saturated these days, but they prove to hold their luck again here. Someday (the Theme from Knight & Day), which plays over the end credits, is actually a really catchy tune.

But the song that will stick (for better or worse) will be Louie Louie, which is guaranteed to be stuck in my head for weeks. I kept on thinking, I wonder if I could get hold of my brother’s phone and rig it to ring that song over and over again just to mess with him. Great song, but wow, it played about a dozen times. Check out this clip from the show Shindig. I dig it the most.

Here’s the complete list of songs from Knight & Day with the links for most of the tunes. Hope you enjoy the songs as much as I enjoyed the movie. I’m even thinking about going back for seconds. Haven’t been that many movies this summer that I would say that for.

Original music for Knight & Day – John Powell

  1. hey guys!
    i think you forget one track…look at this trailer of the film

    at about 1.08 min they start to play an amazing track. do you perhaps know what is the name of the track??
    please help me! thx a lot!!

    • That is the theme song for the talk show Glenn Beck..i tried to find out who it was …he wrote the actual lyrics…and had a friend who records music arrange for a singer who does recordings sing it..that is the truth..i thought it was an old euro hard rock band’s not…lol..check it out and see.

  2. Isn’t that Uprising by Muse?

  3. yea almost..but it is a little bit different. probably a remix :S

    however, thx a lot!

  4. Fabulous movie! I loved every minute of it, and a lot of the music went perfectly with the age of Tom and Cameron…and all of us who are in their age range! Would highly recommend this movie.

  5. Great Blog! Thanks for helping me track down info on the song Someday by the BEP’s. I am going reference your blog in my movie review of Knight and Day. Steven z/z

  6. […] At the end of the movie the song Someday plays, turns out this a new, not yet released (as of this date) tune by the Black Eyed Peas. Thanks to reelsoundtrack blog for helping me out with this fact. knight and day soundtrack […]

  7. LOVELOVELOVE!!!! this movie — he was hilarious, lot of fun action, she was great. LOVE

  8. I’m almost positive that the song Strip Me by Natasha Bedingfield was in there some where.

  9. Hey the song “Someday” by the Black Eyed Peas you left is not the song played in the movie, and is not even by the Black Eyed Peas…I thought it was a very catchy tune, and whatever that crap is…is well crap.

    • I don’t think that was the song played as the credits started rolling. What ever it was, I’m looking for it. The song was good.

    • i think the song youre looking for is ‘upsiring’ – MUSE.

    • I just down loaded (and paid)! from Napster the BEP song Someday and it is NOT the same song sung at the end of the movie! Anyone know where I can get it without buying the whole soundtrack?

  10. Ok I think in the beginning or maybe even in the beginning credits there is a song about Superman??? DO you know the name of this or who sings it?

  11. This blog is a such a gem. Definitely going to bookmark it. There’s a specific soft, laid-back techno beat that plays in the background in at least three scenes, haven’t been able to find it yet, but I think it’s part of John Powell’s original music, so I will try that once the soundtrack comes out.

  12. loved all the parts of this movie! i was totally entertained.
    smart banter. gorgeous. funny. fast paced. not one dull moment! cruise’s role is just so manly. MANLY!!!

  13. I knew they wouldn’t use Muse in the movie, just in the trailer. I hate when studio’s do that. The commercial even got my wife liking “Uprising” which is a great song.

  14. Did you list the track that plays every time there’s an action scene? It’s like a fast paced techno-ish song with no words. I can’t find it anywhere and haven’t figured out which one it is if it is indeed listed…..thanks!

  15. Ok, so i know i am being a pain, but does anyone know what song is playing when June is talking to Roy’s mom? They are looking at a picture of him in his scout uniform and talking about his “death”, and a sort of melody is in the background. I have been looking for that since i saw the movie, with no luck.

    • Not a pain at all. I cannot remember the song, but I am hoping someone who visits the post will know the answer and will be able to help you out.

      • That would be nice. I haven’t even been able to find a video of the scene online, to ask there.

    Asked By Me On November 20, 2010 at 11:48 am

    I Think The Author Of This Web Page Is Unable To Find It Along Withe Some Other People Including Me Who have Posted Before.

    If Any One (Including John Powell) Knows What Song Is It Or Where It Could Be Found, Please Post The Information Here.

  51. I’m looking for the song at the very end of the credits where the title of the movie is shown for the last time.. The beautiful spanish guitar. I don’t believe I see an answer for this question.

  52. Here’s one I bet no one can find. In the movie, just near the end, a few seconds after Roy wakes up in the car on the beach, some very pretty ethereal sounding music plays. I can’t find it on the soundtrack or any of the above references. Maybe taken from another movie?

  53. Hi. What is the name of the song that plays in the Hotel in Austria, the part with Cameron is in the bath tub..? Thanks!

  54. i m looking for the song which gets played whenever Tom Cruise gets Movement Alert…
    if anyone knows it plz tell me
