Sydney Sweeney stars in The Voyeurs as a Montreal ophthalmologist named Pippa. Justice Smith co-stars as Pippa’s adoring partner, Thomas. When the couple moves into a new apartment, they spot two attractive neighbors who appear to be exhibitionists. Pippa and Thomas initially watch for fun but then realize that something isn’t quite right, both across the way and within their own home. Music supervisors Mikki Itzigsohn (Lucky) and Willa Yudell (Class Action Park) incorporate an indie, dream-pop aesthetic with their 20-plus musical selections. Here’s every featured song in the 2021 Amazon Prime movie The Voyeurs.

  • “Eyes Without a Face” by Angel Olsen (00:01:00): The Voyeurs begins with an actual voyeur scene featuring Sweeney’s Pippa, who breaks the fourth wall in a dressing room. Angel Olsen’s cover of Billy Idol’s 1984 single plays over the opening title sequence. The song fades when Pippa arrives at her new apartment, and also plays during a climatic scene at 01:47:00 featuring Seb (Ben Hardy) and Julia (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), one that thematically aligns with the lyrics.
  • “I Can Only Stare” by Sleigh Bells (00:28:00): Pippa and Thomas visit Seb and Julia’s apartment for a costume party. Dressed as a sator, Hardy’s character carries away Sweeney’s frightened protagonist. Seb behaves oddly while taking photos.
  • “Waiting” by Klyne (00:29:00): Pippa and Thomas dance after an awkward moment. They giggle and share a drink.
  • “Secret in the Dark” by Monika (00:30:00): The Voyeurs soundtrack song plays immediately after “Waiting.” Thomas spots Seb with a woman who closes a door to a room.
  • “Glory Box” by Portishead (001:09:00): Pippa enters a bar near her home. She spots Seb having a drink. Pippa stares at her neighbor in tune with the lyric “Give me a reason to love you,” which foreshadows their hook-up soon after.
  • “Patterns” by Nasaya feat. Sara Diamond (01:31:00): Pippa tells Ari (Katharine King So) that she wants to see Seb. The music kicks as the women arrive at an opening night photography show. Hardy’s character appears and takes a photo of Pippa.
