The cast of Ginny & Georgia

'Ginny & Georgia's Season 1 Soundtrack Is Everything You Didn't Know You Needed

by Ani Bundel

On many levels, Ginny & Georgia follows Gilmore Girls' successful formula: The well-meaning, vibrant mom who is nonetheless a bit emotionally stunted, the daughter who is both her mother's best friend and desperate to break out of her shadow. But Netflix's take on the trope adds in a ton of extras, from a mysterious past for mom Georgia to a coming-of-age story for teen Ginny. Another place Ginny & Georgia outshines Gilmore Girls is the music. Ginny & Georgia's Season 1 soundtrack is just stuffed with bops that viewers will be singing for weeks to come.

Gilmore Girls was also known for its soundtrack back in the day, with spinoff albums coming out back when it was still a WB series. However, back then, the norm was one big song every few episodes. Considering Gilmore Girls ran 22 episodes a season for seven years, one can understand why music — which can be expensive to use — would be doled out sparingly.

But Ginny & Georgia has the good fortune to arrive at a time when 10 episodes are on the longer end of Netflix shows. That allows for far more songs per episode, and the series takes advantage of this at every turn, with up to a dozen songs in each installment. And of course, there's one original song as well, "I Can Barely Breathe," performed by cast members Mason Temple and Rebecca Ablack.
