Why Are You Like This Soundtrack Guide: Every Song In Season 1

The Why Are You Like This? season 1 soundtrack thematically aligns with its Gen Z premise. Here's every featured track in the Australian Netflix show.


The Why Are You Like This? season 1 soundtrack thematically aligns with its Gen Z premise. Songs with ironic or provocative titles are dispersed throughout the six episodes, and the genre selections are mostly electro and modern. A couple of old-timey standards punctuate heavy moments in the April 2021 Netflix release, but the filmmakers mostly rely on lively and energetic tracks.

Why Are You Like This season 1 takes place in Melbourne, Australia. The storyline centers on three roommates who are extremely online and self-aware, which leads to them steadily reacting to others rather than analyzing their own behavior. Why Are You Like This season 1 stars Naomi Higgins as Penny, Olivia Junkeer as Mia, and Wil King as Austin.
