Firefly Lane music has been giving us some serious flashbacks of our youth—from our own CD collections to the records we remember our parents playing or the tunes that had us racing to the dance floor at the school prom.

The Netflix show left us with many questions (Is Firefly Lane a true story? What did Tully do to Kate? Will there be a season 2 of Firefly Lane?), but it has also been making us all feel all fuzzy inside. And there's no better way to keep the spirit of the show going on than by creating our own playlist based on songs from the show.

Tully Hart (Katherine Heigl) and Kate Mularkey (Sarah Chalke)—two best friends who met as teenagers have captured our hearts with their imperfect friendship. As the series flips back and forth between scenes, the music follows suit as we're taken through the decades of the 70s, 80s, and 2003.

Episode one uses Time in a Bottle by Megan O'Neill to show Tully becoming a teenager, while Kate turns from a teenager into an adult. And when Tully and her unpredictable mother Cloud, (Beau Garrett) move into Firefly Lane in 1974 the rock song Thousand Watt Workout by John Moran, sets the tone for their lively arrival in the peaceful suburban setting.

And it's something which Kate soon gets to experience when she swings by as Cloud gets into the spirit of the hippie sounding song Shifting Sands by The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band.

With Tully now a newcomer at Kate's high school, the iconic yellow school bus ride needs to be accompanied by a song that sums up her attraction from fellow students - with the sounds of She Turns My Radio On.

But with a whole 30 years of friendship to cover in the debut season, there's plenty of songs to get stuck into - whether they're familiar tracks like Soft Cell's Tainted Love, Every Little Thing She Does is Magic by the Police or completely new ones. 

Simply playing them back at home will take you back to some of those iconic scenes until we await news of a possible second season.
