Dead Man Down Soundtrack: List of Songs
Dead Man Down OST by Jacob Groth
I wasn't expecting very much when I went to see Dead Man Down considering the fact that it was produced by WWE Studios. Have you seen those direct to DVD films starring wrestling superstars? Yep, WWE Studios were responsible for those cinematic atrocities. Imagine my surprise when I finally got to view this action thriller starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace. It was actually well-made. And of course, the music was awesome.
Speaking of the soundtrack, my beef is that they didn't release an album containing the songs played in the movie. They only came out with the score by Jacob Groth.The Dead Man Down OST was released on April 2, 2013. The original motion picture soundtrack features music by composer Jacob Groth. The CD contains fifteen compositions by Groth. The tracks are also available individually on Amazon and iTunes.Dead Man Down is an action thriller with themes that revolve around crime and revenge. It stars Colin Farrell, Noomi Rapace, Terrence Howard, Dominic Cooper, and Isabelle Huppert. It's directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Eagle, Portland). The movie was released in movie theaters in the United States on March 8, 2013.
Dead Man Down Trailer Song

The first trailer for Dead Man Down has been released and you can all say anything you want about it but one thing's for sure, it features a great track by a great band and covered by a great singer. Accompanying the trailer is the song Shine On You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd as covered by female singer Kendra Morris. It's a beautiful cover and it really fits the trailer very well. Now, it's uncertain if the track will make it to the official Dead Man Down soundtrack but it will be awesome if they do include it. The track alone will make the soundtrack album worth buying. As to the film's score, no composer has been announced yet but since the official trailer is now out, we'll surely get more details about the score soon.The rousing track featured in the fast-paced trailer is Kendra Morris' version of Shine On You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd. The track was a tribute to Syd Barrett, a former member of the band. It was written by David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright.Although it was officially released in 1975, Pink Floyd first performed it a year earlier while touring in France. When it was released, it was part of the band's album Wish You Were Here. The band also recorded different versions of the track for several of their compilation albums.
