Spenser Confidential is now on Netflix with a fantastic soundtrack. The movie touched down on Netflix on March 6th.Here we have put together the complete list of the songs that are featured throughout the action movie.

The new action movie of Netflix sees Winston Duke and Mark Wahlberg team up for a buddy-cop film where Spenser comes out of retirement in order to hunt down the killer of two Boston cops.

Unfortunately, in spite of starring Mark Wahlberg, you won’t be able to find the Funky Bunch and Marky Mark found in here with any of his hits like Wildside, You Gotta Believe, or Good Vibrations. Also in spite of starring Post Malone, no tracks of him feature either.

So who conducted the soundtrack for Spenser Confidential?

Steve Jablonsky provided for Spenser Confidential the soundtracks including 20 original songs.

Steve has more than 84 composer credits to his name with his notable hits consisting of the 2007 movie Transformers (which Mark Wahlberg later went onto star in), he also worked on the Desperate Housewives series. More recently, he did the soundtrack for Deepwater Horizon.

We have embedded below the official album release for the OST for Spenser Confidential.

The best video game soundtracks of all time (part 3)

8. Machinarium

Tomáš Dvořák

(PC, 2010)

Monkey Island, Grim Fandango – a number of history’s greatest point ‘n’ click games believe their dialogue for his or her character, but not Machinarium. Instead, it is lovingly rendered scenarios and an enthralling soundtrack by Tomáš Dvořák – producer Floex – that sweep the game along.

9. Ikaruga

Hiroshi Iuchi

(Dreamcast, 2001)

If you forget the music from Ikaruga, it might be because you were too busy getting killed. This brilliant color-swapping shoot-em-up from Treasure had potent, sweeping trance gems for days, provided you’ll hear them long enough before your ship exploded once more.

10. Super Mario 64

Koji Kondo

(N64, 1996)

Even with a drill ’n’ bass remix of the first Mario theme, Super Mario 64’s OST hasn’t aged that well. There’s too many trumpets, too many hoedowns, and an excessive amount of of the type of rinky-dinky playground music that tires even quicker than the Wing Cap’s controls, but it deserves inclusion for a couple of spectacular moments – namely the brilliant ‘Inside the Castle Walls’, and therefore the water theme used on Dire, Dire Docks, black flag Bay and therefore the Secret Aquarium, a.k.a. Nintendo’s greatest ever New Age record.

11. Dragon Quest VIII

Koichi Sugiyama

(PS2, 2004)

Much like the game itself, there’s nothing quite as memorable because the stand-out themes of ultimate Fantasy, Chrono Trigger et al on this OST, but by god when it’s good it’s about as high-grade and delightful as this whole damn world gets.

12. Psychonauts

Peter McConnell

(Xbox, 2005)

Instead of sticking with one blend of tones, Psychonauts found director Tim Schafer and therefore the Double Fine crew shifting from one to a different as his psychic hero Raz explored different minds. The result’s a genre hopping carnival ride and one among Peter McConnell’s wildest scores. Whatever fractured mind you enter McConnell finds how to form the music stick. The way to write music for a conspiracy-filled 1950s world, a town of terrified lungfish running from your Kaiju-sized hero, and a black velvet bull fighting world must be hard enough. Tying it all into one game may be a job only McConnell could have accomplished.
