Everybody’s raving about “San Junipero,” that one new Black Mirror episode that isn’t all foreseeable-future technological doom and gloom. And why wouldn’t people be? When you’ve got a heartwarming love story that not only breaks from the norm of disturbing Twilight Zone-style sci-fi, but also promotes the cause of #LoveWins, you know it’s going to stand out from the pack.
Now, Black Mirror showrunner Charlie Brooker has revealed the full playlist that served as the inspiration for the episode, and we must say, it’s perfect as both an ’80s throwback playlist and a back-to-work hump-day motivator as well. Of course, the list is led by the episode’s official anthem, “Heaven Is A Place On Earth” by Belinda Carlisle, and it just gets better from there.
