There's no denying that The End Of The F***ing World is one of our favorite TV shows of 2018, and we're only a month into 2018. However, we also can't deny that it had a pretty amazing soundtrack, too.

Director Jonathan Entwistle caught up with Billboard to talk more about how the soundtrack came to be. He had plenty of ideas in mind—around 700, actually. He tells the music news source that he and comic book creator Charles Forsman worked together to pick out the songs they felt paired best with the characters' crazy world.

“Once we shot the show, we started to craft around that . I realized we could be really on the nose with the music cues,” Entwistle says.

He explains that they picked less popular tracks for multiple reasons. One of the most obvious is to keep it affordable. But they also worked around the weird teen aspect, avoiding the contemporary to hone in on the twisted story—and the emotion of it all.

“We made an adult show about teenagers,” Entwistle says. “The dawn of teenagers was the ‘50s and because we were playing that whole creepy, suburban thing, I automatically went to a ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s doo-wop thing. I think that’s the saddest music in the world.”

He says the duo liked pairing “sad songs with happy scenes and happy songs with sad scenes,” and it's a move we can all appreciate. 

Entwistle says fans have been “going insane searching for the music,” especially searching for those “obscure” tracks. Although he says that they don't have a plan to “officially” release a soundtrack, you can listen to a Spotify playlist he compiled below.

Earlier this year, it was announced that the series could get a second season. While we don’t have a definite answer as to whether or not the show will be picked up for a second season, we'll be re-watching the series in the meantime.

(And listening to the soundtrack on repeat, too.)
