Soundtrack Roundup: The Good Place


The fourth and final season of “The Good Place” is coming up soon. To get you ready for the last adventures of Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason, we’ve collected a list with all of the music featured in each season of “The Good Place”.

If you haven’t yet watched Michael Shur’s fantasy comedy series, then now’s the time. But here’s a synopsis in case you’re a bit curious (no spoilers).

“The Good Place” follows the story of Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), who wakes up in an afterlife introduced to her as the Good Place by the “angel” Michael (Ted Danson). However, Eleanor soon finds out she was sent there by mistake. In order to prove that she belongs in the Good Place, she enlists the help of a moral philosophy professor to teach her to become a better person.

While it may be about becoming a better person, “The Good Place” also sports a collection of solid songs in its soundtrack. Granted, it doesn’t reach the same level of meticulously crafted soundtracks as we’ve seen in other shows. Music plays a bit more of a muted role here. But because of its sparse soundtrack, it makes it easy to bring the entire collection of songs to one article. Episodes below that are omitted contain only the original soundtrack as music.

So without further ado, here’s our roundup of every song played in each season of “The Good Place”.
