The Summer I Turned Pretty soundtrack will fulfill all of your pop anthem needs, and it just might make you nostalgic for your high school sweetheart.
Chock full of Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish, the playlist screams "romance," and it's the perfect accompaniment to an epic YA love story. Let's be honest: who better to croon about young love than Ms. Swift?
"The Venn diagram of Swifties and Summer fans, it’s like a circle," the story's author, Jenny Han, told TVLine (opens in new tab). "It’s like all overlap. And as we were telling the story, there’s just so many moments where I [was] like, 'This could use a little bit of Taylor Swift.'"
Naturally, this means that we're in for plenty of emotion thanks to The Summer I Turned Pretty. Once you've binged the show on Amazon—and read the bestselling series during a beach outing—why not jam to the tunes that bring the story to life? We know you'll appreciate it while you're driving with the top down.
'The Summer I Turned Pretty' soundtrack
Without further ado, we present to you the 71-song track list from the show's debut season.
Though yes, plenty will be pleased with Swift's many moments in the spotlight, the lengthy list does include plenty of other current obsessions: Jack Harlow, Dua Lipa and HAIM, to name a few. Hip-hop fans will also be pleased with a few Doja Cat and Cardi B tracks sprinkled throughout.
If you're one for the OG summer romance movie, you'll catch a nod to Grease in there, too!
For the uninitiated, The Summer I Turned Pretty hails from Jenny Han, the creator of the famous To All The Boys series, which introduced us to Lara Jean and her adventures of the heart (a few of the best teen movies on Netflix and a YA favorite).
Now that the author's Summer series is getting some time in the spotlight, fans have shuffled over from Netflix to Amazon to see novel's screen adaptation, and thus far, everyone is in favor of the brotherly love triangle that's beginning to unfold.
The Prime series follows Belly and her family's annual summer getaway to Cousin's Beach. (Where was The Summer I Turned Pretty filmed? We have the scoop.) Belly's mother's best friend always tags alone with her two boys, Jeremiah and Conrad. This particular summer is far more interesting than its predecessors, as the boys begin to see Belly in a whole new light. But which one is her perfect match?
If you're all for a roller coaster of emotions and Taylor Swift, you'll be pleased to know that Amazon is revisiting Cousins Beach for season 2 of the show. Belly's story is just getting started, and so are the playlists.
“As fans anticipate the beach fun and young romance in the upcoming first season, we’re excited to announce more summer to come with a second season of The Summer I Turned Pretty,” Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, said in a press release.
If you need us, we'll be on the beach listening to our favorite tunes. Catch The Summer I Turned Pretty on Amazon Prime now.
