Bridgerton Fans Can't Stop Talking About The Soundtrack In Season 2

Bridgerton has become known for three things; its raunchy sex scenes, beautiful regency outfits, and its soundtrack of string quartet covers of popular modern music.

Season one featured 'thank u, next' by Ariana Grande covered by Vitamin String Quartet, and Taylor Swift's 'Wildest Dreams' covered by Duomo.

When season two dropped fans were quick to take to social media when Kris Bower's string quartet cover of Madonna's 'Material Girl' played at a ball.

But it's the soundtrack to the final episode that has really got people talking.

After watching, one fan quickly took to Facebook posting: "Can we just talk about how on the last episode of Bridgerton when they're at the Featherington ball that they are playing Miley Cyrus 'wrecking ball' on the violin."

Other fans began adding their opinions to the thread, with one writing: "I love the old era with the new music, makes it accessible and fun and the orchestra playing the songs just changes the feel of the song, but it’s still recognizable…I love it"

Some users pointed out other shows and films that have included classical covers of songs: "In A Knights Tale with Heath Ledger (well worth the watch) they did this with a David Bowie number and it really worked."

Another wrote: "The series Reign has a lot of modern songs played at balls. Just brilliant."

Other classical covers in Bridgerton season two included the Bollywood song 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham', Alanis Morrissette's 'You Oughta Know' and 'Dancing On My Own' by Robyn.

Talking to Today, the show's composers gave some insight into their choice of songs: "Sometimes the songs that we use to shoot the sequences will not be the songs that end up making the final cut, but ‘Wrecking Ball’ was the one song that made it all the way through," Music supervisor Justin Kamps said.

Talking about the choice to use the song Kamps continued: "It’s all about like someone coming into your life, and just like totally blowing it up.

"[Kate and Anthony] meet each other in the first episode, and everything just gets blown up from there. I just feel like that song’s just a really good way to bring it all together in the end.”
