Bo Burnham’s new Netflix special, Inside, has been dubbed by reviewers a “virtuosic portrait of a mediated mind”. Featuring 20 songs about the experience of going through lockdown all alone at home while plugged into the internet, the show is resonating with so many viewers. And now, it seems everyone wants the timestamps for Bo Burnham’s Inside to make their very own playlist.

What is the Netflix special all about?

Filmed in his guest house and produced entirely on his own, Burnham’s new Netflix special delves into the fever-dream quality of going through lockdown life while plugged into the internet. 

Laced in satire and celeb parodies, the comedian’s 20 songs cover everything from the insanity of reaction videos to Burnham’s anxiety about turning 30 during the pandemic.

As Inside becomes a big hit, fans are now wondering if his Netflix special will become an Emmy contender. After all, it was released just one day before the Emmy deadline and the show definitely has the potential.

How to make your own Inside playlist for quarantine listening

For those scouring the web, hoping to create a Spotify playlist of Bo Burnham’s songs, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. Currently there are no Burnham songs from the Netflix special on either Spotify or iTunes.

Even songs from Burnham’s previous Netflix special, Make Happy, continues to remain off the big streaming platforms as Netflix holds all exclusive distribution rights.

Fans, for the most part, seem unhappy with this state of affairs.

So where can you find them? Well, as Burnham’s songs make high use of visuals, we think that the best place to hear the songs is through Netflix itself. Fortunately, even if you’re on the go, Netflix’s downloadable option allows you to take the songs with you meaning no streaming required.

However, if you’re feeling adventurous one reddit user claims that they made a Spotify Inside playlist using Soundcloud and here’s how you can try it too:
