Online content platforms, which are getting more and more popular today, have brought a lot of innovation into our lives. Thanks to many developments such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Youtube Red, Apple TV+ we can easily watch a few season series in one sitting. In the Tv series, the script and the cast, as well as the music used have a distinct significance. Sometimes, even if we forget the events or characters after finishing a series, the music used can hold its place in memory for a long time.
An original theme song or soundtracks played during an important scene can completely change our sense of the moment. Music that accompanies a scene in a scary, funny or romantic way can make that scene more engaging and impressive. .
Let's take a look at the series that have become legendary for us with both themselves and their music;
The first winner of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Supervision, established in 2017, was none other than Susan Jacobs, musical advisor to Big Little Lies. The series locks the audience onto the screen with tunes from Alabama Shakes, Otis Redding and Fleetwood Mac during the series in the first season, is prompting great curiosity for its subsequent seasons as well.
There is no doubt that the music used in Stranger Things, produced by Netflix, which has the nostalgic atmosphere of the 80s, plays a big role in reflecting the mood of the events. Throwback melodies from bands such as Toto, The Bangles, The Clash, Devo, Mötley Crüe, Queen, Bon Jovi and The Police take the audience back in time.
The soundtracks of Breaking Bad, one of the most successful productions in television history, play a major role in the success of the series. Melodies ranging from Danger Mouse to Afro-Beat and Gnarls Barkley, used in the series, set in minds for 5 seasons, state the tone for all the dangerous relationships with Walter White.
Although the story of Peaky Blinders runs through the 1920s, their music has more up-to-date tunes. The series, which tells the story of a family mafia, features memorable tunes from popular rock bands such as Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age and The Kills, as well as artists such as Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, is one of the notable productions on our list.
One of the many outstanding features of Luke Cage, directed by music writer Cheo Hodari Coker, should not be overlooked is the spectacular music used in the series. Despite being canceled at the end of season 2, old-style Brooklyn hip-hop as well as names like Ali Shaheed-Muhammad and Adrian Younge have played a major role in maintaining the show's popularity.
Now that the cold weather is at our door, we can take our coffee and watch plenty of shows under blankets and explore new adventures as well as new music. We will continue to include Turkish and foreign productions in our newly started blog post series.
Stay with the music!
