The Power of Parker soundtrack | Full list of songs in BBC …


BBC comedy The Power of Parker has many tools in its arsenal: from a stellar cast doing their very best work, to myriad laugh out loud moments, to a killer soundtrack.

Boasting a wealth of ’80s heavyweights, from Soft Cell to The Human League, this is the only playlist you need this weekend.

The six-parter, which is set in Stockport in the year 1990, revolves around Martin Parker, a businessman with “the ambition of Alan Sugar and the looks of Robert Kilroy Silk”.

He appears to have it all – chain of electrical stores, family, big house, fancy car – but “he’s swimming in a sea of debt and lies”, and the two women in his life, his wife Diane and his mistress Kath, have joined forces “to plot his downfall”.

Read on for your full rundown of the series tracklist.
