An first look at the additional music used in No Time to Die.
Whether or not you are a fan of the score by Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro, some of the more interesting music in No Time to Die is by other artists. The 25th James Bond movie uses a number of additional tracks, particularly in the scenes set in Jamaica and Cuba and listed in the end credits.
Despite some of the songs only heard in snatches of a couple of seconds, it’s a real shame they aren’t included on the soundtrack. So here is a Spotify playlist of the music for anyone who is interested. Irritatingly, the embedded playlist is limited to 30 seconds of each song, so head over to Spotify to listen to the playlist in its entirety.
I’ll expand this page over time with exact details of where they are found, but a few notes about the tracks included here.
- The credits lists Incidental 21 from Wallace and Gromet film The Wrong Trousers. Although a movie soundtrack was available, Incidental 21 is not included.
- Quieta Eterna is by Matera musician Nunzio Vincenzo Paolicceli and “Hot Sauce” “Salsa Verde”, was written and performed by Chris Benstead, Supervising Music Editor on the film. Probably both were recorded specially for the film as neither is available online.
- I haven’t been able to spot Golpe de Arpa anywhere so far.
- The version of Dónde Estabas Tú? used during the SPECTRE party was probably recorded for the film. No performer credit is given and I’ve not been able to find this version online. Instead I substituted it with a slightly faster version by the legendary Tito Puente.
Other than noted above, the versions may differ from the ones used in the film. I’ll correct those that I can identify providing the movie version is available on Spotify.
And if you want to buy the score for No Time to Die it’s available from Amazon in a number of formats:
