'Sex Education' Season 2 Soundtrack: All the Songs from the New Season of the Netflix Show

Part of what made Sex Education such a delight when it first premiered was its soundtrack, which perfectly established the offbeat tone of the Netflix show with songs by Ezra Furman. Season 2 does feature a number of Furman songs, including his version of an LCD Soundsystem classic, but the show also expands its musical references to feature everything from '80s synthpop songs to '60s soul belters.
