The original score for Person of Interest is composed by Ramin Djawadi. In addition to the original music, producers Jonathan Nolan and Greg Plageman select contemporary songs and instrumental music to underscore specific scenes. Popular music is chosen to add emphasis in a scene ("I'm Afraid of Americans"), set the tone of a scene ("Boom Boom"), or to sum up the story at the end of an episode ("Sinnerman"); occasionally source music is played which we hear along with the characters ("Para La Habana"). In some cases, the lyrics of the song help move the story forward ("Exit Music (For a Film)"), in the style of a music video.

The following is a compilation of songs and instrumental music used in the series to date.
