Someone Great, the latest in a long line of sharply-written rom-coms from Netflix, has an astronomically good soundtrack.


Named after a song by LCD Soundsystem, the film stars Gina Rodriguez as New York-based music journalist Jenny, who breaks up with her boyfriend of nine years (Lakeith Stansfield) to pursue a job at Rolling Stone in Los Angeles.

Writer/director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, a former music journalist herself, curated the perfect playlist to fit the highs (upbeat tunes from the likes of rap artist Lizzo) and lows (dour folk from Phoebe Bridgers; the melancholic electro of Lorde and Robyn) of a relationship.

"I wanted to integrate the music and have the soundtrack feel like it was curated by Jenny," she tells

"Music has always been incredibly important for me, not just because I did it as a job," the former Pigeons and Planes blogger says, "but also because it has been one of the most important things that has gotten me through every up and every down."
