Bridgeton made headlines in the first season with impressive costumes, imaginative casting decisions and steamy sex scenes.
Another feature that made the show stand out was its use of intriguing instrumental covers of pop hits.
LA-based group Vitamin String Quartet gained worldwide attention for their renditions of Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” and Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” used in key scenes.
The second season might be different as it focuses on the love triangle between sisters Kate (Simone Ashley) and Edwina Sharma (Charitha Chandran) and Viscount Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey).
It might even differ on the levels of hatching, to the point where it can feel like a whole different show. Still, fans can rest assured that the musical tributes will remain.
Here are the songs you can hear in the second season of Bridgeton.
“Material Girl” – Madonna – covered by Kris Bowers
In episode one, the Sharmas line up for their first event in the ton, accompanied by Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh). As they enjoy their new neighbors, the orchestra plays an instrumental version of Madonna’s 1984 hit “Material Girl.”
“Dancing On My Own” – Robyn – covered by the Vitamin String Quartet
An important moment in Kate and Anthony’s relationship occurs in episode four. At another ball, the characters are encouraged to settle their animosity and dance together. But sparks fly on the soundtrack to Robyn’s legendary “sad banger,” “Dancing On My Own.”
“You Should Know” – Alanis Morissette – covered by Duomo
Another musical highlight occurs in episode five when Kate and Anthony try to end their illicit flirtation. There’s fast riding and fiery exchanges, making Alanis Morissette’s angsty classic a fitting soundtrack for the scene.
“Signs of the Times” – Harry Styles – covered by Steve Horner
In episode 6, wedding bells ring and an orchestral version of Harry Styles’ debut solo single plays as the bride walks down the aisle.
Other notable covers of Season 2 include:
“What About Us” – P!nk – covered by Duomo
“How Deep is Your Love” – Calvin Harris and Disciples – covered by Kiris Houston
