All the songs played in ‘Big Little Lies’ season 2

Spoilers ahead!

Over the course of seven episodes, Big Little Lies revealed the interweaving lives of five brilliant, conniving and emotionally troubled women in Monterey (played by a who’s who of award winning actresses) – and had audiences gagging for more.

Now, it’s finally back on our screens – but with 100 percent more Meryl Streep. And although critics are divided on whether the second season lives up to the first, one thing that remains equally excellent is the soundtrack.

If you didn’t manage to get Shazam rolling in time and have been wondering what that song was, don’t worry, we’ve got you. Here are all the songs that have been played in Big Little Lies season two so far.
