Rescued by Ruby Soundtrack: Every Song in the 2022 Netflix Movie
- “Johnny B. Goode” by Danny B. Harvey (00:48:00): Daniel plans for a one-on-one learning session with Ruby. The Rescued for Ruby soundtrack song plays as Melissa states “I’ll be your audiobook.” Daniel trains Ruby during a training montage; he teaches her lessons that will hopefully benefit the Rhode Island State Police. The Rescued by Ruby soundtrack song fades as the titular dog learns to sniff the scents of humans; a moment that correlates with one of the film’s most tense scenes.
- “Hero” by Grace Gaustad (01:26:00): Daniel holds hands with Melissa after locating a missing boy from the community. The music sets in as Ruby sits nearby and observes the couple. An overhead shot follows Daniel and Melissa as they enter a vehicle, not long after speaking with Pat Inman (Camille Sullivan), the missing boy’s grateful mother and a kennel owner who saved Ruby from being put down. The Rescued for Ruby soundtrack song scores the final moments and end credits.
