The Shonda Rhimes period drama features some very familiar music…

For those who prefer their period dramas a little less buttoned up, Netflix’s Regency-era adaptation Bridgerton proved the perfect festive viewing over Christmas.

The series follows Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor), a proclaimed beauty and the eldest daughter of the wealthy and exclusive Bridgerton family.

While her debut at court proves a triumph, the combination of an over-protective brother and the arrival of a competing debutante puts a dampener on Daphne’s first season – that is, until she strikes an unconventional deal with Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page).

Bridgerton was praised for its bingeable storylines, lush settings – and its soundtrack, which includes instrumental versions of well-known pop songs that often mirrored the events of the series.

The series features plenty of recognisable hits, from Ariana Grande’s 2018 track thank u, next, to songs by the likes of Shawn Mendes and Taylor Swift– read on for the full soundtrack.
