Netflix Simon and Daphne in Bridgerton

Are you loving your Bridgerton binge and the music that goes with it? Us, too – but we know that it can be difficult to place the songs when they’ve been reinvented with a classical twist.

If it’s really bugging you, look no further: we’ve put together a handy list of every cover version used in season one.

Episode one

Thank U, Next by Ariana Grande

This Ariana Grande number is played during the first ball of the season, as all eyes are on Daphne. The song title seems particularly appropriate as her brother Anthony bats away every suitor.

Girls Like You by Maroon 5

As Anthony continues to spurn every eligible man on Daphne's behalf, out comes this catchy Maroon 5 number.

Episode two

In My Blood by Shawn Mendes

Daphne and Simon dance together to In My Blood at the beginning of their plan to fake their courting.

Episode three

Bad Guy by Billie Eilish

As Simon pretends to be jealous (or is he?) of another man asking Daphne to dance, this Billie Eilish number labels him the bad guy.

Episode five

Strange by Celeste

Celeste’s huge hit Strange is the basis for the next cover version, by Kris Bowers and featuring Hillary Smith. Daphne and Simon’s real feelings are confirmed when they consummate their relationship.

Episode six

Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift

This Duomo cover version of the Taylor Swift song is heard during Daphne and Simon’s honeymoon… when they simply can’t get enough of each other.
