Best Songs From the Inside Llewyn Davis Soundtrack

Not a Folk Fan? You'll Still Like Inside Llewyn Davis's Music

The Coen brothers take on the folk music scene of the 1960s in Inside Llewyn Davis, which follows a struggling singer-songwriter. Oscar Isaac plays the title character, while other famous faces like Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver, and Carey Mulligan have supporting roles — and they also sing! The movie is one of the most anticipated films of the season, and the soundtrack is its own draw. Along with the already-mentioned voices, musicians like Marcus Mumford (who also produced the soundtrack with T Bone Burnett) are contributing. Whether you end up seeing the movie or not, the soundtrack is worth a listen, and these are the songs that you have to hear.

  • "Five Hundred Miles": Timberlake and Mulligan sing on this, a cover of an old folk song, and both sound absolutely angelic. It's soft, romantic, and gorgeous.
  • "Green, Green Rocky Road": Try not to get a crush on Isaac by just listening to his voice. This is the kind of pleasant, pretty song you want to listen to while it's just barely raining outside.
  • "Please Mr. Kennedy": This upbeat original song has Isaac and Timberlake singing with Driver providing slightly goofy backup. It's fun, it's pretty silly, and it will get stuck in your head.
  • "Fare Thee Well (Dink's Song)": Mumford's recognizable voice shines but doesn't steal the spotlight from Isaac, whom he sings with. It's a cover of a traditional folk song, but it would fit right in on a Mumford & Sons album.
