Russian doll song that keeps playing over and over each time the lead protagonist “Nadia” dies in her time loop has now become an earworm song that got stuck in the head of this amazing Netflix original series fans.
♫ ♫Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the morning comes
What if I’m late, gotta big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up ♫ ♫
The song is “Gotta Get Up,” sung by late singer-songwriter “Harry Nilsson” and was the opening track of his 1971 album titled “Nilsson Schmilsson”.
But it’s no fluke that the song made its way into the show. Both Natasha Lyonne and Leslye Headland, who were the creator and director of the show are a big “Harry Nilsson” fans and right from the get go, the song was an integral part of the script.
They needed a song that can play multiple time and still grow on you every time you hear it and they hit bull’s eye. On February 1, 2019 the show was premiered on Netflix and within a week the song has seen a massive 3000% more streams on Spotify and other Music streaming services.
But Nilsson’s song was just one of the many songs, soundtrack that got a whole new fan base. The 8 episodes of Russian Doll spans multiple genres from late 60s to the 2010s.
