The 'Dash & Lily' Soundtrack Is Full Of Quirky Christmas Songs

Dash & Lily is overflowing with Christmas cheer, and one of the reasons Netflix's new series feels so cozy is all the offbeat holiday songs that underscore the show's whirlwind romance. With Nick Jonas as an executive producer, of course the music had to be on point, and the song choices definitely stand apart from other holiday fare by leaning in an edgier, more indie direction. Basically, the Dash & Lily soundtrack is about to be your go-to playlist for the holidays, or at the very least, it will introduce you to a new Christmas bop you hadn't heard before.

While Dash & Lily does use a lot of the classic Christmas carols pretty much everyone knows, the series also highlights a lot of more alternative holiday songs by rock bands like Eels, The Waitresses, and The Pogues. The soundtrack all builds up the the show's big musical moment at the end: a concert by the Jonas Brothers in which they perform their holiday track "Like It's Christmas."
