When you start watching a Netflix limited series like A Man in Full, you probably aren't expecting it to have a memorable soundtrack. But the drama series has exactly that. Between its haunting and totally absorbing score by Craig DeLeon and the various throwbacks peppered in each episode, the mood is set to keep viewers on the edge of their seat.

One of the most surprising aspects of the soundtrack might be a cameo appearance in the very first episode. In a birthday party scene for Jeff Daniels' character Charlie Croker, country superstar Shania Twain appears and performs two of her hit singles: "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" and "You're Still the One." The Grammy Award winner delivered some incredible live vocals!

Apart from Shania's iconic and unexpected cameo in the Netflix miniseries, if you're looking for a particular song featured in a specific episode of A Man in Full, we're sharing all of the songs that were able to be identified throughout all six episodes.

Before diving into the episode by episode rundown of the music, the score album Craig DeLeon deserves a spotlight. The score soundtrack album was released on April 26 and features 28 instrumental songs of varying length heard in the show. A lot of the instrumentals were rather ominous, but if you need a little fire under you for your workday or a study session, you can play the score soundtrack included below!

The other songs on the playlist vary in genre. You'll hear many oldies from decades past by the likes of ABBA, Jim Croce, Billie Holiday, and others.
