The Sex Education Soundtrack Will Totally School You on the Best Music of the '80s and '90s
If you haven't watched Netflix's new series Sex Education yet, then you're not only missing out on a hilariously awkward comedy, you're also missing out on its insanely catchy soundtrack. In Sex Education — starring Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield — an inexperienced high school student, who ironically has plenty of sexual knowledge thanks to his sex therapist mother, decides to team up with a bad girl and open an underground sex therapy clinic at school. The soundtrack combines the best of the '80s and '90s — including music from A-ha, the Violent Femmes, and Billy Idol — with jams from songwriter Ezra Furman, who teamed up with the Sex Education creators to make the soundtrack. The result is basically magic. Take a listen to see for yourself.
