The series is a six-part comedy drama, with each episode exploring a different scenario and facet of the titular characters' lives together, now that they are settling into married life and living independently.

The show also features a lively and memorable musical score, and with episodes set at both Valentine's Day and Christmas, there are of course romantic and festive hits sprinkled in.

But exactly which songs are featured across the series, and who are they by? Read on for a list of all of the songs featured in Ralph & Katie.

Ralph & Katie composer

The series's musical score has been composed by Adrian Johnston, who has plenty of previous experience when it comes to creating atmospheric and suitably iconic musical themes for TV series.

His previous work has included composing the scores for Strike, Giri/Haji, Four Lives, Summer of Rockets and Dancing on the Edge.

However, while it is predominantly Johnston's music heard throughout the series's six episodes, the majority of them also include some use of commercial tunes. You can find a full list of them below.
