In the movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014), there is a scene where the sheriff is alone with a girl, and he puts a tape on and one of the best bluesy intros to a song I have ever heard comes on, but I cannot identify the track.

The video is Not Safe For Work, but can be found here on YouTube.


I haven't been able to verify which song it is exactly, but there is a list of songs mentioned at the credits. Who performed which one is not readable on my copy.

  • Goodnight Sweet Dream
  • Jesus Christ
  • Two Hearts Entwine
  • A New York Love
  • Happy Call
  • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
  • Silent Night
  • Your Other Man

Other relevant writers/composers in that movie are Jaime Mendoza-Nava and Ludwig Göransson.

While not a definitive answer, I do trust this list will help you find the track you're looking for.

    Thanks For Your Input Mast, I Have Just Sat And Gone The Credits And Typed Every Song Into You tube And None Of Them Are The Track I am Looking For? Im Truly Stumped With This One!! Jan 1 '16 at 8:36

It is most likely either a song that was recorded in the studio specifically for the movie or possibly a stock music track that isn't required to be credited. See the following Blues Acoustic track for an example:


There are many stock music tracks out there that are commonly used in movies and television because they are less expensive than paying a studio royalties to use an official song.
