Jordan Peele’s Nope Soundtrack: List of All Songs from the Movie

What’s a bad miracle?

Jordan Peele’s movie Nope is actually making a statement with its engaging narrative and now the soundtrack. The movie is about two siblings who run a horse ranch in California. And they explore something marvelous and sinister in the skies above.

While the owner of an adjoining theme park attempts to benefit from the mystical, otherworldly phenomenon.

Critics praised the movie for its originality, aspiration, performances, and Peele’s direction. The stellar cast and acting, great spectacle, strong characters, and the reality that Jordan Peele stepped out of his comfort zone are all massive redeeming aspects of this movie.

Michael Abels Talked About The Soundtrack Of The Movie

Michael Abels discussed the movie’s soundtrack and explained something.

“I talk with Jordan a lot about, ‘What’s the threat level?’,” Abels stated. “He’ll sometimes say, ‘Something bad is coming, but it’s not here yet.’

It’s very important that each cue match the intention of the script and the storytelling, and that the music not be scarier than where we are or not as scary as where we are. Every sound has its natural threat level, I think.”

Adding, “The idea of ‘bad miracle’ is an important theme of the film because it’s equal parts ‘Oh shit’ and ‘Oh my god! The music needs to have both those senses together.

Both a little bit of a sense of awe like we would have to look at the Grand Canyon, but then also the urge to run far away from the Grand Canyon because falling in would not be good. That’s the dichotomy that’s present in the film.

So in the music, you hear a sense of a little bit of awe and magic, and then there’s sheer terror. But then there’s also a sense of a real epic adventure towards the end and giant music that accompanies a giant, historic adventure.”

Peele’s opinion on the soundtrack.

“There’s a motif in there and an energy that is about joyousness and adventure and agency and everything that is antithetical to the horror genre. These moments where it’s all about this calibration and negotiation of what the audience is seeing and what we want them to feel, sometimes those things aren’t the same.

Sometimes the visual and the aural sound, the music, it’s imperative that they don’t link up. That was a lot of what our discussion was.”

  1. The soundtracks have become one of the elements of Peele’s movies that I anticipate the most! ‘Got Five on It’ made even better with violins???? Yesss-uh!
