You’ve binge-watched all the series on Netflix, what now? Let’s binge-play their opening tunes. Make sure you’re always prepared to lay down a recognizable ditty that makes people clap along.
How about the theme songs from the previous blog, have you been playing along with “Narcos” and “Peaky Blinders”? Nice! Now it’s time to expand that setlist with some new songs. Check out the latest title songs that we’ve listed for you.
La Casa de Papel
“La Casa de Papel” is one of the most popular series on Netflix at the moment. A nerve wrecking story where things spiral out of control. The plan was to spill no blood but things turn out very different in the end. The opening track wraps the bleakness of the situation in some beautifully melancholic tones. Try it out yourself and play along with “My Life Is Going On” by Cecilia Krull.
Children of the nineties won’t be able to sidestep this gem because they grew up with Chandler, Phoebe, Monica, Joey, Ross, and Rachel. If you want to check someone’s sense of rhythm, let them try the iconic hand clap in this masterpiece. Better yet … Start jamming it unexpectedly at your next family weekend. What are you waiting for? Get out your guitar and start jamming to ”I’ll Be There For You” by The Rembrandts.
“Weeds” tells the story of a single mom who is trying to make a few bucks by selling weed on the side. Just like that plot, its opening track is no ordinary run-of-the-mill song. This 1962 track is an indictment against the rise of sixties suburban life style and the bland bourgeois culture that goes with it.
Malvina Reynolds touches a sore spot by addressing the boring uniformity that comes along with it, box by box. This song will give your setlist some depth, so play along with “Little Boxes” by Malvina Reynolds.
Besides series, streaming offers movies as well. The quality differs, but when there’s one that has an Oscar for best scenario and nominations for best picture, best direction, and best actress, it must be worth watching.
Especially when there’s an awesome soundtrack accompanying it. Well, Juno has all those things. Amazing! So let’s add this one to your setlist as well. Have fun playing along with “Anyone Else But You” by The Moldy Peaches. Enjoy en happy jamming!
