PLAYLIST: The Umbrella Academy – A Netflix Original Soundtrack

‘The Umbrella Academy’

By Steve McSteveface

“In October 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded.

Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

Season 1 was released on the 15th February is based on Gerard Way’s Eisner-winning comic, this series features Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige and a stellar ensemble cast.

To say that I was looking forward to this is an understatement! I actually watched the entire season in one day! It is AWESOME!


The soundtrack has a great selection of songs from 80s to current day. The trailers have had ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ by Tiffany…

…and this version of ‘Hazy Shade Of Winter’.
