With just a few chords, Carole King’s iconic “Where You Lead” can transport Gilmore Girls fans back to Stars Hollow, the tiny Connecticut town that may or may not exist inside a snow globe and is home to Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.

In Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, the mother-daughter duo are back and with them, come a dozen more fantastic songs, musical cues, references, and, yes, a cameo from King herself.

Below, EW has compiled a playlist of the songs that appear in the show, from Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walkin,'” to Lorelai quoting Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic” — yes, her therapist does get that joke — hear them all below.

Watch EW Reunites: Gilmore Girls streaming now on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to, or download the PEN app on Apple TV, Roku Players, Amazon Fire TV, Xumo, Chromecast, iOS, and Android devices.
