Selling Sunset fans have been left baffled after diving a bit deeper into the show’s famously random backing tracks.
The LA-based real estate brokerage has been followed on Netflix since 2019, and season five dropped last week.
This brought even more infighting at The Oppenheim Group, with ice queen Christine Quinn revelling in the drama of it all.
However, something else has caught the attention of diehard fans – its backing tracks.
Taking to social, one viewer wrote: ‘Literally one of the songs was about a kidney and I was so confused.’
Twitter user Jack Remmington addressed the madness with a TikTok in response and said: ‘Sorry but the songs on Selling Sunset are going too far, the fact that this is true, what other show would have backing music with the lyrics.
‘I’m not the type to break up with my kidney… what are the songs going to say next season?’
Fans couldn’t deal with the hilarity of it all, with one joking: ‘The reason I have subtitles on!! “Oh yeah I’m a bad girl in a bad world I am fabulous you are trash and I am rich.. Paris Milan Leeds.. Dogs and frogs bling bling ding fling.”‘
Another admitted: ‘I unironically bop to it any time Chelsea or Christine is on the screen.’
Someone else commented: ‘When I started watching Selling Sunset I used to think what trash the music was. Now I’m on Spotify trying to find the artists.’
‘Lyrics of #SellingSunset songs never disappoint,’ shared a viewer, with a fan noting: ‘Every song on Selling Sunset sounds like it was written by an AI after listening to 48 hours of mall pop music in 2011,’
Carrie Hughes, the music supervisor on Selling Sunset, previously explained how the songs share certain themes and sounds but are all unique.
‘It’s not really the same for me, because I work in music,’ she said. ‘They have the same vibe, but they don’t sound the same to me.’
“The showrunner definitely wanted ‘female empowerment [as a theme],’ Hughes explained to Buzzfeed.
‘The other main word that gets thrown around is “feisty.” So we kind of have two styles of female empowerment. One is just “helping all women,” ‘we’re great,’ ‘we can do this,’ and then there’s more feisty, like, ‘I’m better than you’ vibes.”
That definitely explains a lot.
It comes after more real-estate enthusiasts spotted a hilarious moment from boss Jason, who appeared to be on a phone call, while his phone screen was actually open on the camera app.
‘My vibe today is Jason talking to his camera pretending to call a client,’ one person tweeted.
Another viewer added: ‘Did Jason just pretend to answer a phone call by opening his camera?’
Fans were left in hysterics, with one pointing out how the moment reflected a very similar scene from season one, when Heather Rae Young also appeared to be on a fake call, as she was talking to her home screen.
Selling Sunset seasons 1-5 can be streamed in full on Netflix now.
