So. The Society happened, and it took over a good two days of my life. Can’t say I regret any of it, but now I’m not sure what to do with myself until the next season comes out. If the next season comes out.
So naturally, I did what I do best, and staked out all the songs that I shazaam-ed during my binge, to curate a playlist for you all. The music in this show is incredible. I’m definitely biased because of how much I loved this show, but it takes a lot for me to stop watching, rewind and try and shazaam a song. I even googled lyrics at one point.
Whoever chose the music for this song did an excellent job at finding the perfect songs for each moment. There are some incredible indie throwbacks, absolute soul belters that come out of nowhere, and that specific type of atmospheric song that just injects so much emotion into any scene. The Maze by the Manchester Orchestra was a huge standout for me. It’s such an uplifting moment within the show, and the music just partners with it perfectly, on God, I nearly started crying.
But anyway, here’s the playlist.
Personal Jesus – Depeche Mode
Just Like Heaven – The Cure
The Maze – Manchester Orchestra
bury a friend – Billie Eilish
I Know What Boys Like – The Waitresses
Byegone – Volcano Choir
Up All Night – The Boomtown Rats

Let You In – Pete Muller, Melissa Soltero
Go To Town – Doja Cat
Empire Of Our Own – RAIGN
In A Blackout – Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Melt With You – Modern English
I’d love to know if any of you guys have watched The Society. I’d really appreciate having someone else to talk to and obsess with. Let me know if you listen to any of the songs in the playlist. It could be just me who found this soundtrack incredible, but if not, let me know in the comments!
