Wednesday soundtrack | Every song in Netflix’s Addams Family comedy


Those who’ve watched Netflix‘s new take on the Addams Family will know by now that Wednesday truly is full of woe – as well as moody hits from The Rolling Stones, Antonio Vivaldi and Metallica.

Tim Burton’s first TV series is the latest gothic treat to land on the streamer, starring Gen Z scream queen Jenna Ortega as the titular poker-faced teen with a passion for monochrome colours.

The coming-of-age horror comedy – which is suitable for those 12 and up – follows Wednesday as she’s reluctantly enrolled at the Nevermore Academy by her parents, Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Gomez (Luis Guzmán) Addams, whose own secrets are tied up in the supernatural school.

Meanwhile, original Addams Family star Christina Ricci also appears in the cast as a brand new character, with Ortega telling in an exclusive interview that it was “nerve-wracking” working with the actress.

“You don’t want to feel like you’re doing the knock-off version of her performance right in front of her,” she said.

From tracking down a killer monster to harnessing her own psychic powers, Wednesday manages to keep herself busy despite despising her surroundings, with all her shenanigans accompanied by the sounds of Dua Lipa, The Cramps and an original score by Danny Elfman.

Read on to find out more about the soundtrack for Netflix’s Wednesday.

Who composed the soundtrack for Wednesday?

The theme music for Wednesday was created by Danny Elfman, the Emmy-winning composer and singer who has worked frequently with Tim Burton. Both Elfman and Chris Bacon (Bates Motel, Smash) composed music for the whole series.

Elfman has written the scores for most of Tim Burton’s projects, from Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands to Big Fish, Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas, for which he also provided Jack Skellington’s singing voice.

Wednesday is streaming now on Netflix. Sign up for Netflix from £6.99 a month. Netflix is also available on Sky Glass and Virgin Media Stream.
