music from Miss Fisher’s

music from Miss Fisher’s published on 2 Comments on music from Miss Fisher’s

Before my blueray player decided it didn’t like Netflix any longer I was enjoying Miss Fisher’s Mysteries.  More than once, the credits started to roll and the accompanying song was delightful and fresh in a way that 1920s radio mixes are new and fresh.  Being a popular show, of course the soundtrack is available commercially, however, I suspected that a lot of the songs would be freely available courtesy of the Internet Archive.  I was right, and I made you a little mix of all the songs I could find for Season One with a script I have been dying to try.

And, if you want to scope out the internet archive available songs on my mix, I’ll even share the list….though, my mix tape is totally the best way to listen.
