The music in a film or TV series can often make or break the final product as the choice of songs or original score can add just the right feeling to each scene.
For a sort-of-coming-of-age film like Netflix’s Senior Year, that is incredibly important as music can play a huge part in growing up, even if growing up has involved being in a coma for 20 years.
Senior Year is packed with songs but just which tunes feature in the movie’s soundtrack and who composed the score?
Senior Year release date and plot
Senior Year leapt onto Netflix on Friday, May 13th, 2022.
Starring Rebel Wilson, the film tells the story of Stephanie Conway, the most popular girl at Harding High School and the captain of the cheerleading squad.
However, Stephanie’s perfect life takes a disastrous turn when a cheerleading stunt goes wrong and she is left in a coma for 20 years.
When Steph finally awakens, she is 37 but still needs to complete her final year of high school and returns to the once familiar corridors that might as well be an alien planet as she aims to reclaim her prom queen crown.
Senior Year soundtrack
Senior Year is a film that is packed with music and even features tracks performed by the movie’s own cast.
The songs that feature in the soundtrack of Senior Year are:
Who composed the score?
As well as a whole plethora of licensed songs, Senior Year also features a toe-tapping original score that is the work of composer Jermaine Stegall.
The upbeat music perfectly fits the high school setting while also featuring some more melancholy tracks to mirror Stephanie’s bizarre situation.
As well as Senior Year, Jermaine has worked on the music for Coming 2 America, Proximity and Jamesy Boy as well as more than 50 movies, TV shows and short films.
Jermaine Stegall’s score for Senior Year is available to listen to now on music streaming sites like Spotify and Apple Music.
Senior Year is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on May 13th, 2022.
