Orange Is the New Black is a series that encompasses so much. The show has the ability to deal with a vast spectrum of issues so freely only because it is available on an online platform, Netflix. Across five seasons now the show has brought forward some radical political ideas, connected us with ourselves and the ones we care about and, what interests us the most, employed some compelling tracks that often became a vital part of the plot. Here’s a list of our 15 favorite songs from the show.
