  1. what a brilliant show the peaky blinders is and the sound track would be great driving music among other things to be able to buy as a compilation will look out for.

  2. i look forward to the sound track put on album

  3. Pleeeaseee! In the 5 episode when Thomas and Grace are making love, there is a song. I couldn’t find it!

    • katia, the song is •‘God is in the House’ by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds….it’s just the intro piano part that you hear in the show.

      • Thank you!

        It sounded to me like a variation on the Waits’ song ‘Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis’. At first I thought it was a studio outtake with which I was unfamiliar, then I thought it might be a live recording stripped of the vocal track and other instrumentation. When ‘Time’ started up immediately after the track ended, I thought perhaps Mearl (sp?) might have done some sort of homage to 70’s Waits’ as a lead-in. I was baffled, really – so thanks very much for taking the time, darrolyn (and katia for asking)…Sincerely appreciated :)

  4. A brilliant series and yes…please put the soundtrack on an album!

  5. Music is so different, best I have heard for ages. Please make an Album.Wasted if not out there ;)

  6. Hello, fellow Peaky Blinders fans and soundtrack lovers!
    I asked the production company about a possible OST release, but sadly there are no plans to release an album.
    The songs by the artists are available to buy separately online either via iTunes or amazon, etc…or perhaps have a look on spotify.

  7. BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I was wondering if anyone would know the track played in episode 4, at around the 42 minute mark. It’s where the police turn up looking for Tommy at the pub. I can’t seem to find it, and it’s not on this list!

  9. The modern music jars against the subject matter of the Peaky Blinders and spoils the show. If we could watch the program without the soundtrack it would be so much better. It’s like scraping your nails down a blackboard…

  10. The modern music set against the period backdrop was the icing onthe cake. It was so evocative and
    added to the already brilliant drama.Well done!!

  11. I watched Alan Yentob last night and the background music was from the Peaky Blinders. Can anyone tell me the name and artist?

  12. Does anyone know the music in S01E01 when Thomas shot Danny?
