Bridgerton was undoubtedly one of the most binge-worthy shows on Netflix. And aside from the genetically blessed cast, epic costumes and sets, the soundtrack was seriously on point—yes that was Ariana Grande’s Thank You, Next played by a string quartet at the ball. 

We’re a sucker for a good playlist, allowing our favourite Netflix series to live on, way after the credits roll. So which ones are we vibing the most?

Well, wonder no more because legit analysts have sussed out which shows, and their accompanying music score, we devoured the most on Spotify—and the results might surprise you. NB Bridgerton wasn’t in the running because it’s too new, so put the pitchforks down (FYI the playlist is here though).

Taking out the top spot was... Stranger Things. It scored a whopping 87,022,122 average streams per song. With 247,596 followers, the series’ Spotify playlist gifted us two hours and 55 minutes of tantalising glimpses into our favourite strange world with old school hits from Cyndi Lauper and TOTO.

In second place was teen drama 13 Reasons Why. Each tune featured in the series has been played an average of 59,825,286 times—not a typo. The playlist treats us to three hours and 55 minutes of moody, emotional bangers from Billie Eilish and YUNGBLUD to Five Seconds Of Summer and Lauv. Honestly, with Selena Gomez serving as an executive producer on the show, the musical score was always going to be epic.

Making the top three most popular Netflix soundtracks is the weird but wonderful Black Mirror with 48,943,294 average streams per song. If its episodes are controversial for some people, the five-hour-long soundtrack will definitely please every music taste, with artists ranging from Alanis Morrissette and the Bee Gees to Simple Minds.

Rounding out the top ten is Sex Education, Orange Is The New Black, Money Heist, Peaky Blinders, The Crown and Dark.

In the tenth spot was The Queen’s Gambit. Despite its record-breaking views for the series, it doesn't seem to be matched by its soundtrack—just 11,362,222 average number of streams per song, proving that chess doesn't sound as good as it looks!
