In October 2023, Jennifer Lawrence’s new comedy movie No Hard Feelings finally made its long anticipated premiere on Netflix. No surprise, the film shot straight to the peak of the top 10 most popular movies on Netflix. It was one of the funniest movies of the year, and now that it’s available to a wider audience, it’s getting even more deserved love.

The R-rated comedy centers on Maddie (Jennifer Lawrence), an early 30-something who’s a bit down on her luck. After she loses her car, she answers an ad from parents hoping to prepare their 19-year-old son for college by setting him up with an older woman. The synopsis drew criticism, but the movie tackles the absurdity and awkwardness of the plot head-on.

Like most movies, No Hard Feelings boasts a soundtrack full of recognizable songs, most of which are throwback singles from between the 1970s to the 2000s, with a few other songs tucked in for good measure. Oldies fans will love to hear songs by Tommy James, Hall & Oates, The Stooges, and Bob Seger in the movie, but what other songs are on the soundtrack?

No Hard Feelings soundtrack

One of the most played songs on the soundtrack is a cover by the film’s star Andrew Barth Feldman. The actor and singer, who was previously seen on Broadway in Dear Evan Hansen as Evan Hansen from 2019 to 2020, performs a piano cover of “Maneater” by Hall & Oates in a pivotal scene in the movie. Feldman’s cover has over 4 million plays on Spotify.

While there are multiple songs included in the movie, the soundtrack that was released on Madison Gate Records consists of 20 songs, 18 of which are score by Mychael Danna and Jessica Rose Weiss. The two other songs on the soundtrack are “Back to the Start” by Cary Brothers and Feldman’s live cover of “Maneater.”

Check out the complete list of songs heard in the movie:

  • “Draggin’ the Line” by Tommy James
  • “Another Camden Afternoon” by The Stranglers
  • “Jezahel” by Shirley Bassey
  • “Wondrous Place” by Billy Fury
  • “Down on the Street” by The Stooges
  • “The Stroke” by Billy Squier
  • “Driver’s Seat” by Sniff ‘n’ The Tears
  • “Maneater” by Daryl Hall & John Oates
  • “Hot in Herre” by Nelly
  • “Back to the Start” by Cary Brothers
  • “I Guess You Get It” by Earl Rose
  • “Would You?” by Richard Swift
  • “Maneater” performed by Andrew Barth Feldman
  • “Anemone” by The Brian Jonestown Massacre
  • “Semper” by Last Verse
  • “Black Out Days (Future Island Remix)” by Phantogram
  • “That’s That” by Cass McCombs
  • “You’ll Accomp’ny Me” by Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

All of the songs fits the overall tone of the movie so well, including the hilarious inclusion of “Hot in Herre” by Nelly. The music helps center the movie that’s otherwise full of outlandish comedy in a place of warmth and realism, but the the music also feeds into silliness to grab extra laughs (see: “Hot in Herre).

The score soundtrack album can be downloaded and streamed wherever you listen to and purchase your music. For the rest of the songs, you’ll have add them to your own playlist in honor of the movie. I don’t know about you, but after watching the movie, I’ll be streaming Feldman’s “Maneater” cover until further notice.
