It’s A Sin soundtrack: All the best music from Russell T Davies’ hit AIDS crisis drama
It’s a Sin is the heartbreaking TV drama about the 1980s AIDS crisis that everyone is talking about, and its incredible soundtrack is definitely one of the highlights.
The first episode aired on Channel 4 on 22 January, with a new episode being released every Friday. Meanwhile the entire five-part series was also made available on streaming service 4 On Demand in the UK.
So whether you chose to binge-watch the whole series on its premiering weekend or you’re waiting to watch an episode each week, you might notice how important – and amazing – the It’s A Sin soundtrack is.
Each moment of joy, heartbreak and loss is complimented in the soundtrack with a classic, queer favourite song from the 1980s that only elevates each scene even more.
If you missed the chance to catch every single song on the It’s A Sin soundtrack but you’re wondering who the artist or what the title is then we’ve compiled the entire soundtrack below. It features songs from the Pet Shop Boys, whose classic track inspired the show’s title, Kate Bush, Divine, Culture Club, Blondie, Wham! and more.
