Guitar song from the movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown (2014)
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.
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.
