Ambulance stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Danny Sharp, an infamous bank robber who plans a $32 million heist.

The storyline follows the siblings as they flee from authorities in a stolen ambulance with an EMT (Eiza González as Cam Thompson) and injured police officer (Jackson White as Zach) on board. Composer Lorne Balfe (Top Gun: Maverick) scored the 136-minute film, which includes four featured needle-drops. Here’s every song in Ambulance, a re-make of Laurits Munch-Petersen’s 2005 Danish film Ambulancen.

  • “La Sonidera ” by Los de Abajo (00:15:00): The Ambulance soundtrack song scores a dining sequence. Cam looks at her Oxygen account and sees that she owes $106.23 for the month. She drinks a Heineken as Scott (Colin Woodell) arrives and sits down. Cam looks at her phone and doesn’t seem interested in patient updates. Scott says that González’s character is known as “the best medic in town” but that no one wants to be her partner. The Ambulance soundtrack song drops as Cam processes the information.
  • “Sailing” by Christopher Chris (01:35:00): Danny finishes a phone call. He puts on ear pods and says, “I need to chill out.” Will requests a pod and sings along to the music with Danny. The characters rock out while driving. “Sailing” briefly cuts and then picks up again as Cam watches the siblings. The Ambulance soundtrack song drops as the titular vehicle arrives at the L.A. River.
  • “California Dreamin’” by Bobby Womack (01:38:00): Danny listens to a police radio. He asks Will to perform an alley-oop maneuver. Captain Monroe (Garret Dillahunt) gives orders to his team. Danny and Will escape from the authorities. They celebrate and meet up with a crew member. The Ambulance soundtrack song fades as Danny tells Castro (Wale Folarin) to spray the vehicle in 45 seconds.
