The original motion picture soundtrack to the 1997 film Boogie Nights is a two-disc set released between the end of that same year and the beginning of the next year.

The first soundtrack album, Boogie Nights: Music from the Original Motion Picture, was released October 7, 1997 in the United States. Boogie Nights 2: More Music from the Original Motion Picture, was released January 13, 1998.

Though the two albums encompass nearly every major song featured in the film; songs omitted are Nena's "99 Luftballons" (the opening of which is featured as the conclusion to the Rahad Jackson sequence); Sunny by Boney M; Andrew Gold's "Lonely Boy"; the intro of Jethro Tull's "Fat Man" from Stand Up; "Compared to What" by Roberta Flack; and "The Sage" (the cello piece heard at Jack Horner's home) by Chico Hamilton, Starland Vocal Band's "Afternoon Delight" (heard on radio when Eddie is visiting young girlfriend in her bedroom) and most of Michael Penn's original score. Ironically, the 1977 Heatwave disco hit "Boogie Nights" does not appear in the film or either of the soundtrack albums.
