Nine Perfect Strangers theme song
The soft tones of the band Unloved and their song “Strange Effect” are used as the musical theme of the show. Artist Raven Violet is also credited as a featured artist on the runway.
The song blends perfectly with the kaleidoscopic and psychedelic imagery played out in the opening credits, and “Strange Effect” is a perfect term that hints at the mysteries unfolding at Tranquillum House.
Unloved are a Los Angeles-based musical trio while their song “Strange Effect” was released in 2020. Their songs have also been featured on the BBC America show. Kill Eve.

As Lars Lee (Luke Evans) and Carmel Schneider (Regina Hall) shop at a gas station, Roy Orbison’s “Problem Child” is heard on the radio in the background.

Songs in Nine Perfect Strangers Episode 2
Episode 2 of Nine Perfect Strangers presents a mystically orchestral track to begin with as Masha runs to the song “Carnival of the Animals: Aquarium” by Yakov Zak, Emil Gilels, Karl Eliasberg, Leningrad Philharmic Orchestra and Daniel Shafran.
Jimmie Davis’ “You Are My Sunshine” is the well-timed track that accompanies the breakfast montage. Later, Frances and Tony Hogburn (Cannavale) listen to “Ramble” by Link Wray & The Wraymen and “Let’s Live” by Aaron Neville in the pool.
As the episode reaches its crescendo, Gabriels’ “Loyalty” plays on Masha’s conversation with Yao (Manny Jacinto) and Delilah (Tiffany Boone) before continuing to play on the end credits.
Songs in Nine Perfect Strangers Episode 3
Episode 3, “Earth Day” features tracks that might make you feel one with nature, but it opens first with the classic track “Only You” by The Platters as Masha plunges from a waterfall.
Bon Ivor’s track “Michicant” plays a leading role in the episode, especially for the Marconi family. Heather (Asher Keddie) sings the song and thinks about her deceased son as the song also picks up as Napoleon (Shannon) talks about her son and tells the story of the goat.
During the group’s meditation session, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra performs the “Harpsichord Concerto in F minor”. The Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra’s version of “Cavalleria Rusticana: Intermezzo” is later played while Tony chases a goat.
When the retreat guests have fun dancing around the bonfire, the song “For Sure” from Future Islands plays. After Masha is directed at the end of the episode, the Avalanches song “Running Red Lights” (feat. Rivers Cuomo & Pink Siifu) plays on the credits.
