The Crown is back for season 4, and we just want to binge the whole thing again and again.

The Netflix series picks up in 1979 and takes us through the Royal Family's trials and tribulations during the 1980s, alongside Margaret Thatcher's reign as Prime Minister.

One aspect of the season is its fantastic soundtrack, helped particularly by Princess Diana (Emma Corrin)'s choice of music in certain scenes.

Meanwhile, check out Smooth's The Crown Special show, in which Myleene Klass celebrates the return of the Netflix drama with a playlist of songs that appear in the series, and sum up the era.
