The final film in the “To All the Boys” franchise is coming our way very, very soon! Although we’re so excited for its premiere on February 12, 2021, we also can’t get over the fact that it’s the last we’ll see of Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky.
So while we’re counting down the days ’til we say goodbye to these beloved characters in “To All the Boys: Always and Forever,” let’s reminisce and listen to these songs from the film series:
1. “I Like Me Better” by Lauv
Lyrics: “I knew from the first time, I’d stay for a long time / ‘Cause I like me better when / I like me better when I’m with you”
Played at: 1:02:51 in “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” + its official trailer
Scene: This may not be the first song played in the movie chronologically, but this was also used in the trailer–so technically, it’s the first TATB song we heard! In the movie, this song was played when Lara Jean, Peter, Chris, Gen, and everyone else were on a bus on their way to the ski lodge.
(P.S. This is an absolute favorite of ours–still can’t stop listening after all these years!)
2. “Human Right” by The Strike
Lyrics: “Baby, don’t fight / I wanna see you move tonight / Turn out the lights / Dancing is a human right”
Played at: 21:31 in “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”
Scene: When Lucas follows Lara Jean to give back her letter, we were given a little flashback of them dancing during a homecoming event.
3. “Lovers” by Anna of the North

Played at: 1:06:40 in “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”
