Mr. & Mrs. Smith Soundtrack: Every Song In The Movie


  • Mr. & Mrs. Smith features a diverse soundtrack, including songs by ’80s bands like Poison and Air Supply and covers of classics like “Lay Lady Lay” and “Girl From Ipanema.”
  • Mr. & Mrs. Smith also features an original film score by composer John Powell.
  • Not every song that plays in Mr. & Mrs. Smith is featured on the official soundtrack available on streaming. Some of the songs on the tracklist never appear in the movie but match the theme.



A diverse array of songs plays throughout the 2005 action-comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith, some of which are easy to miss while others can be hard to identify. Directed by Doug Liman, Mr. & Mrs. Smith stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as John and Jane Smith, a married suburban couple who are secretly both highly-skilled assassins working for different contract-killing firms. The film received mixed reviews from critics but earned an impressive $487.2 million at the box office worldwide (via Box Office Mojo). Mr. & Mrs. Smith is also notable for establishing the now-divorced lead couple’s high-profile relationship.

In 2024, a TV series based on the original Mr. & Mrs. Smith film premiered on Amazon Prime Video, starring Donald Glover and Maya Erskine as the titular couple. While there are some key differences between the Mr. & Mrs. Smith TV show and the 2005 movie, the modern-day reboot generated renewed interest in its source material. One thing the original movie does have in common with the Mr. & Mrs. Smith show is a killer soundtrack. Here is every song that plays in Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) in order.

When Every Song Plays In Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Some Songs In Mr. & Mrs. Smith Are Easy To Miss

“Oxidados” by Plastilina Mosh: The first song featured in Mrs. & Mrs. Smith plays as the scene cuts from the Smiths’ marriage counseling session to a shot of a helicopter flying over Bogotá, Colombia. John is then shown having a drink at the hotel bar and speaking to the bartender about the Colombian authorities questioning solo tourists.

“Mondo Bongo” by Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros: The first time “Mondo Bongo” plays in Mr. & Mrs. Smith is when John and Jane toast their shot glasses to “dodging bullets” in Bogotá before downing their shots and dancing. The instrumental of this song plays again while John and Jane are passionately making out after physically fighting in their house. “Mondo Bongo” plays a third time toward the end of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, this time remixed by John Powell, right as John and Jane exit the shed they were hiding in at the Home & Garden store and start shooting at their fellow spies hunting them down.

“(Who Discovered) America” by Ozomatli: This song starts playing as the scene cuts from John and Jane kissing in the hotel room in Bogata to an establishing shot of the New York City skyline. At a carnival, John and Jane take turns playing a shooting game. Jane pretends to have bad aim at first, but when John proceeds to hit every target, she goes another round and does the same, making John suspicious.

“The Worst Day Since Yesterday” by Flogging Molly: This Celtic indie folk tune plays briefly as John enters the bar and stumbles into the back room for employees only, pretending to be too drunk to find the restroom. He finds most of his marks in there playing poker and convinces them to let him join.

“Baby, Baby” by Alana D: Right as the door opens to show John and Jane arriving at their neighbors’ house for a party, “Baby, Baby” by Alana D immediately starts playing. The song plays for the remainder of the sequence, which includes Jane being forced to hold someone else’s baby and looking uncomfortable.

“Nothin’ but a Good Time” by Poison: As Jane is staking out the desert waiting for Benjamin “The Tank” Danz (Adam Brody), John appears in a race car, driving around recklessly while blasting “Nothin’ but a Good Time” by Poison from the radio. The rock jam continues to play as Jane spots him on the camera and thinks he’s a civilian about to blow her operation.

“Mi Dulce Caridad” by Matt Hirt & Francisco Rodriguez: This song plays very faintly in the background as John and Eddie (Vince Vaughn) eat at a diner together while discussing John getting potentially ID’d on the hit in the desert by who he suspects was a woman, without realizing it was Jane.

“Assassin’s Tango” by John Powell: This ballroom dance number plays at the restaurant as Jane sits at the table alone, sipping wine while shedding a tear because she thinks she killed John in the elevator explosion. When John shows up, much to her surprise, he sits down to talk before they take to the dancefloor to tango. Technically, “Assassin’s Tango” is part of Powell’s original film score under the Spanish title, “El Tango De Los Assassinos,” but it was also included in the official soundtrack under its English title.

“Express Yourself (Mocean Worker Remix)” by Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band: This song starts playing right after the Smiths’ kitchen explodes during their epic shootout. John and Jane come face to face and use hand-to-hand combat to fight instead of weapons. “Express Yourself” comes to an end as soon as they pick up their firearms.

“Lay Lady Lay” by Magnet featuring Gemma Hayes: As the interior of John and Jane’s destroyed home is shown, a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay” by Magnet and Gemma Hayes begins to play. John and Jane proceed to go about their normal breakfast routine amidst the rubble.

“Making Love Out of Nothing at All” by Air Supply: A wide shot of cars driving on a bridge is shown as “Making Love Out of Nothing at All” starts playing. John drives their neighbors’ stolen minivan as he and Jane continue confessing to all the lies they told each other. John starts singing the song as he drives before he notices a row of cars on their tail. Jane opens the trunk and starts shooting at them as John drives more erratically to try to lose them, at which point Jane takes over the steering wheel.

“Girl From Ipanema” by Alana D: This famous Brazilian jazz song serves as the elevator music when John and Jane, guns in hand, take the elevator to the next floor of the Home & Garden store as they’re both being hunted by their own teams.
