The opening song and soundtrack in the Gentlemen series

Guy Ritchie’s sitcom The Gentlemen is finally available on Netflix, and the soundtrack is incredible: let’s check out the opening song and the other tunes.

Since the film The Gentlemen was released in 2019, it was clear that Guy Ritchie’s premise was quite promising. After all, it was the classic blend of ingredients that readers enjoy in his work: the English ambiance, the raw world of criminality, the “pulp” perspective, and a generous dosage of sarcasm. The backdrop was simple to reuse, which is how the Netflix series that debuted in 2024 came to be: the world of English nobility interacting with criminals and drug traffickers, attempting to combine aristocratic attitude with lethal impulses, was too sharp to leave there.

The Gentlemen series retains the film’s interesting contrasts while introducing a whole new cast: Theo James, Kaya Scodelario, Giancarlo Esposito, Ray Winstone, and others represent a diverse range of styles and dangers. The narrative moves from the criminal depicted in the 2019 film to Duke Eddie’s interesting journey into the realm of crime. And, of course, the soundtrack is the hidden jewel behind everything else.

The Gentlemen series soundtrack was curated by British composer Christopher Benstead, who previously composed music for the 2019 film (as well as Guy Ritchie’s 2023 film The Covenant). The musical choices on the show are usually intriguing, and there are many tunes that viewers are eager to discover. Listening to strong rap songs like Aystar’s Kop That S-t or Iron Butterfly’s In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida while watching a series is one of the joys we search for.

However, one of the most intriguing parts of the series The Gentlemen is the unique soundtrack composed by Chris Benstead, which is why the opening song has taken center stage. Every episode has a new opening tune, but it all follows the same concept: an epic mood enhanced by a chorus of tenors in an orchestral composition that takes things to the next level.

If you loved The Gentlemen‘s opening song, we recommend you listen to the whole original soundtrack: you can find it below, from Spotify.

The opening tune that captivated you in the key episodes of The Gentlemen was most likely Halstead Manor or The Gentlemen Titles, which you can also listen to on YouTube, here and here. It’s the music you hear in the opening titles of various television shows as the credits roll behind you.

Classical music is always an important aspect in films and television shows, and it’s always a delight to see modern composers still composing it, combining the force of a complete orchestra with the pictures we enjoy from contemporary works. Guy Ritchie and Chris Benstead collaborated to create another masterpiece: the Gentlemen series soundtrack, which includes the opening song and the remainder of the music, is a jewel that will stay with us for a few weeks.
