Every song in Django Unchained

From hip-hop to country to other spaghetti western scores, Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained soundtrack is a fusion of songs.

True to Quentin Tarantino's signature filmmaking style, the soundtrack to his spaghetti western epic Django Unchained features an eclectic mix of songs. Needles in Django Unchained range from hip-hop to country rock to R&B soul to operatic productions on original soundtracks to previous westerns. Tarantino included as much Spaghetti Western maestro Ennio Morricone as he could. Several acclaimed artists have recorded new songs specifically for the Django Unchained soundtrack, such as Rick Ross and John Legend. Frank Ocean wrote a song for the film, but (via NME) Tarantino was unable to include it on the soundtrack because "there was no scene for it."

Since Mr. Blonde's "Stuck in the Middle with You After torturing a kidnapped cop, Tarantino became famous for his signature soundtrack choices. Tarantino has incorporated westerns from Morricone and other film composers into the soundtracks of Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds before, but Django Unchained is his first true western — and, By extension, it was also his first true western soundtrack. From Morricone to Luis Bacalov to Riz Ortolani, Tarantino has included some of the greatest Spaghetti Western composers on the Django Unchained soundtrack.
