Song Discovories From Netflix

I discovered two songs that took my down the rabbit hole of music discovery and exploration. I just started watching Black Mirror. Episode 2 features a song called “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is” by Irma Thomas.

The end credits of Aziz Ansari Live At Madison Square Garden features “Hippie Hippie Hourrah” by Jacques Dutronic. He was married to Francoise Hardy.  I added him to my short list of French pop music ( which only includes Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot).
