WARNING: SPOLIERS AHEAD
First and foremost, if you have not finished the series yet I would highly suggest coming back after you do so. Since the beginning of Wanda and Vision’s precious love story, to their painful farewell(s) in Infinity War, and their third (still painful) separation in the series finale, they continue to be a fan favorite superhero couple, and rightfully so. The highly anticipated show did not fail to bring fans together every Friday through laugher, screaming, and crying because of these short 9 episodes. Everyone knows that their love for one another is paramount, but this series truly allowed us to witness the ends to which Wanda would go for Vision, and vice versa.
The show cleverly incorporated a multitude of commonly seen television tropes, iconic soundtracks every episode, and really long credits. From a classic 60’s black and white sitcom, a nostalgic Gilmore Girls-esque family show, to a documentary style episode referencing The Office, WandaVision definitely kept its audience pining for new surprises. To highlight these amazing time jumps, I have compiled a wide and timely collection of songs for our favorite Westview couple to grow old with in their house they’ll grow old in.
Featuring sweet doo-wop, buttery jazz, and dancing in the kitchen type love songs, here is: Wanda & Vision’s playlist with songs to grow old to.
Day Dreaming- Aretha Franklin
“Day dreaming and I’m thinkin’ of you”
I Only Have Eyes for You- The Flamingos
One of the sweetest doo-wop songs of the 50’s
Everybody Loves Somebody- Dean Martin
Everybody meaning Wanda and Vision; somebody meaning Wanda and Vision again
Misty- Ella Fitzgerald
A classic favorite of mine: “I’m too misty, and too much in love”
It’s Been a Long, Long Time- Harry James
A wonderfully painful MCU favorite!
You Make My Dreams (Come True)- Daryl Hall & John Oates
Again with the dream motif, but do not be fooled! Westview was more a nightmare for some.
Where You Lead- Carole King
An ode to episode 5 and the very Gilmore Girls-esque ballad theme song of it all
Time After Time- Cyndi Lauper
To commemorate Wanda’s beautifully heartbreaking last words at the end of episode 9: “We’ll say hello again”
Every Little Thing She Does is Magic- The Police
In a literal and figurative sense
Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy- Queen
From me, dedicated to Vision
In Case You Don’t Live Forever- Ben Platt
What an ironic choice
Sunflower, Vol. 6- Harry Styles
Picture me this: Vision and Wanda kissing and dancing in the kitchen to this perfect song
Grows Old- Thirdstory
Finally, a painful ending: “Hold my heart til’ it grows old”
