When Bridgerton arrived on Christmas Day 2020, its blend of modern sensibility and regency romance captured the imaginations (and eyeballs) of Netflix’s viewers. But although the blend of modern-thinking heroines and 19th-century mores was the draw, the music captured the essence of the series perfectly, with 1810s instruments playing 21st-century hits. And it doesn’t end with Season 1; Bridgerton’s Season 2 soundtrack has all-new pop song covers from the hottest recording artists of this century, punctuating the fictional lives of those who lived 300 years ago.
Season 1 of Bridgerton had six covers that were threaded in between classic songs of the period, with Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift sharing the dance floors with Vienna waltzes and quadrilles. Season 2 was able to nab several more songs, with a list of 10 covers (some modern hits, some beloved throwbacks) spread out over eight episodes.
Also, unlike Season 1, not all the songs are Western pop numbers from the U.K. and the U.S. With the Sharma sisters hailing from Bombay, Season 2 also includes a famous Bollywood number, the titular track from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, among its reimagined tunes for 1814. Truly, there is a lot to be thankful for in the ton this season.
