What Song Plays During Glass Onion's End Credits?

Daniel Craig returns popular detective Benoit Blanc to the silver screen to solve another murder against a scenic backdrop and we reveal which song plays during Glass Onion’s end credits.

What Song Plays During Glass Onion’s End Credits?

The song that plays over Glass Onion’s end credits is Glass Onion by The Beatles.

Instead of giving viewers a post-credits scene in the style of Marvel, Rian Johnson decided to deliver the song that inspired the title of the sequel.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote the song in 1968 serving as a response to their fans’ obsession with the band. The lyrics housed a number of hidden meanings and its mystery is something that lends itself to the film sequel’s title.

Some viewers were puzzled over Johnson’s decision to leave out a post-credit scene, considering the third Knives Out film is already confirmed, but the song replacement is a fitting end to the narrative.

Glass Onion Soundtrack

Accompanying an original score composed by Knives Out’s Nathan Johnson, is a list of popular songs from a variety of artists, with some actors playing covers of the songs in the mystery.

The sequel’s soundtrack is currently available to stream on Amazon.

Below we have created a track list of all the songs used in Glass Onion:

The sequel served a one-week limited theatrical release at the end of November and interested parties will have to wait an additional three weeks before it then arrives on the streaming platform.
