Netflix action-comedy Red Notice has a soundtrack filled with familiar favorites along with a few viewers might not recognize. Here’s every song.
Netflix’s new release Red Notice features a catchy soundtrack; here’s every song in the movie. The film, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, features A-listers Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne Johnson as the three leads. After Gadot’s international art thief character, Sarah Black, a.k.a. the Bishop, sets up Johnson’s FBI agent John Hartley to take a fall, he teams up with Reynolds’ character, art thief Nolan Booth, to take her down.
The Netflix Original action-comedy has a cinematic score for the film written by composer Steve Jablonsky. His work is reminiscent of the scores for the Mission Impossible franchise and the James Bond movies. It sets the tone for the film, giving it an adventurous feel as the globe-trotting characters cross paths in an attempt to take each other out in the fast-paced flick.

Though Red Notice has received negative reviews from critics, the audience consensus is a glowing 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, showing that at-home viewers are looking for nothing more than an entertaining romp. The chemistry between the three leads is what makes the otherwise stereotypical action film memorable, but it’s also helped along by its soundtrack, which features a range of songs from rap to Raiders of the Lost Ark music. Here is every song in Red Notice and the scenes they’re featured in.
“Sabotage” by Beastie Boys – In the movie’s opening scene, Hartley is attempting to chase down Booth after he steals one of three Cleopatra Eggs. “Sabotage” begins to play as Hartley climbs into a Porsche Taycan near the Colosseum in Rome in an attempt to follow Booth but cuts out almost immediately as he crashes.
“Época” by Gotan Project – “Época” plays as a Valencia title card appears and continues in an overhead shot. Hartley puts on a mask and walks into Sotto Voce’s (Chris Diamantopoulos) party as the song continues to play. He meets up with Booth who is disguised as a waiter holding a tray of champagne glasses.
“Amado Mio” by Pink Martini – “Amado Mio” is performed by live musicians at Voce’s party. It occurs in the scene in the movie where Dwayne Johnson’s character approaches Gadot’s and they begin dancing to the song until Voce interrupts them because he’s jealous and wants to dance with her.
“Downtown” by Tony Hatch – The Bishop sings the words to “Downtown” as she is torching Hartley in an attempt to interrogate Booth. She begins singing the song again when she escapes after poisoning Voce.
“The Raider’s March” by John T. Williams – Booth is able to find Hitler’s hidden bunker in the middle of a jungle in Argentina. Hartley whistles “The Raider’s March,” from Raiders of the Lost Ark as they enter the bunker, which fittingly looks like it came straight out of an Indiana Jones movie.
“Perfect” by Ed Sheeran – As the buyer of the Cleopatra Eggs is presenting them to his daughter at her wedding in Cairo, Ed Sheeran begins a live performance of “Perfect” for the bride.
“Libertango” by Tango Jointz – “Libertango” plays over a Sardinia title card which cuts to Dwayne Johnson’s Hartley and Gal Gadot’s Red Notice character climbing out of the ocean and onto their boat.
“Notorious B.I.G.” by The Notorious B.I.G. feat. Lil’ Kim and Puff Daddy – Booth approaches Hartley and Black on their boat with an offer for a new job that they cannot refuse. The job takes them to Paris where “Notorious B.I.G.” plays as they stand outside of the Louvre.
“On the Run” by Naz Tokio – “On the Run” plays over Red Notice‘s closing credits. It’s a bit on the nose, but perfectly fitting for end of the movie.
