Created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar with episodes directed by Tim Burton, James Marshall and Gandja Morteiro, “Wednesday” on Netflix contains all kinds of creepy and not so creepy music, with contributions by Chris Bacon and themes by Danny Elfman. But it’s also packed with popular songs.
From classic guitar-shred anthems like The Rolling Stones’ “Paint It, Black” to Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters,” to more modern pop songs like Dua Lipa’s “Physical,” the “Wednesday” soundtrack is eclectic to say the least. Certain sonic touches take place with the help of Wednesday’s cello, which she plays fiercely. She also has a phonograph in her room on which she plays scratchy and staticky records.
Wednesday’s latina roots are also honored with songs like “La Llorona,” “Tierra Rica” and more, with some haunting operas sprinkled throughout.
