'Last Night in Soho' Soundtrack: Every Song That Appears in the Film

Let it not be said that Last Night in Soho doesn't feature a killer soundtrack.

Set in both the modern day and 1960s, Edgar Wright's psychological thriller flips between the two eras, but the music is predominantly from the latter.

As well as its instrumental music composed by Steven Price, the film's soundtrack has a number of 1960s hits and songs performed by Anya Taylor-Joy.

Here, Newsweek provides a guide to the songs that appear in the film.

Which 1960s hits are in Last Night in Soho?

In the film, fashion student Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie) is obsessed with a bygone era, the 1960s, and adores everything about it, including the clothes, hair, and music.

She regularly plays vinyl gifted to her by her grandmother, and listens to the songs her family raised her on via Spotify when she's out and about.

Eloise is so enamored with the era that when she starts having visions of aspiring singer Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy) she does everything she can to be just like her, and songs from the 1960s dominate the scenes from both time periods.

Here is the full list of 1960s hits that feature in the film:

  • A World Without Love by Peter & Gordon
  • Wishin' and Hopin' by Dusty Springfield
  • Don't Throw Your Love Away by The Searchers
  • Beat Girl by The John Barry Orchestra
  • Starstruck by The Kinks
  • You're My World by Cilla Black
  • Wade in the Water (Live at Klooks Kleek) by The Graham Bond Organisation
  • I've Got My Mind Set on You by James Ray
  • (Love Is Like a) Heat Wave by The Who
  • Puppet on a String by Sandie Shaw
  • Land of 1000 Dances by The Walker Brothers
  • There's a Ghost in My House by R. Dean Taylor
  • (There's) Always Something There to Remind Me by Sandie Shaw
  • Eloise by Barry Ryan
  • Anyone Who Had a Heart by Cilla Black
  • Last Night in Soho by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Titch

"Happy House" by Siouxsie and the Banshees also appears on the soundtrack even though the song was released in 1980, Wright he felt it would fit a scene in which Eloise and her friends enjoy a Halloween party.

Which new songs are in Last Night in Soho?

Given Sandie is a singer by profession in Last Night in Soho, Taylor-Joy had to record a number of songs for the role. They feature on the soundtrack.

The Queen's Gambit star sings two songs, "Downtown" and "You're My World", both of which are covers.

Taylor-Joy recorded several versions of "Downtown" by Petula Clark, she performed an acapella version, and also did a downtempo and up-tempo version of the track.

She also recorded a normal and "Soho version" of "You're My World," which was originally made by Cilla Black in 1964.

Last Night in Soho is out in cinemas now.
