Heartstopper soundtrack: All the iconic songs you recognise from the Netflix series
There are SO many queer anthems in it
Heartstopper is the Netflix series I’ve been waiting my whole life for, and every single part of it is simply stunning. From the impeccable casting to the hugely important storylines, it is just so damn good. But one of the parts of Heartstopper people simply cannot stop talking about is its soundtrack. Every single song on the Heartstopper soundtrack is such a banger, and it’s FULL to the brim with loads of iconic queer anthems, naturally.
Here are all the songs and artists you recognise from the soundtrack of Heartstopper on Netflix:
Want Me – Baby Queen
Want Me by Baby Queen is the first song that plays, right in the opening scene of Heartstopper episode one.
Baby Queen has posted an Instagram with loads of pics of her with the Heartstopper cast, and wrote in the caption: “This story is so important. The first thing I thought when I went in to watch the first three episodes … was that I wish I’d been able to watch a show like this when I was younger, because it would have made a difference to the way I looked at myself and my own sexuality. But I am so happy that it exists now.”
Lovesick – Peace
Lovesick by Peace is the next song on the soundtrack, halfway through Heartstopper episode one. It’s the scene where Charlie is running in PE and Nick sees how fast he is.
