When it comes to Scandal, we're always torn as to whether we're more enamored with Olivia Pope's wardrobe or the show's funky soundtrack. It's a toss up, but as the Season 3 finale approaches, we're biding our time by listening to the infectious '70s classics that play as the drama unfolds each week. Whether Olivia and Fitz are getting into their umteenth lover's quarrel or the gladiators are suiting up for battle, the sounds of Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Otis Redding, The Isley Brothers, and more, keeps things moving and grooving.

We've rounded up our most favorite songs that have played on the show. Have a listen to the 28-track playlist, below, and be sure to subscribe to the Marie Claire Spotify profile for weekly playlists.

Beauty Editor

Lauren is the former beauty editor at Marie Claire. She love to while away the hours at coffee shops, hunt for vintage clothes, and bask in the rough-and-tumble beauty of NYC. She firmly believes that solitude can be a luxury if you’ve got the right soundtrack—that being the Rolling Stones, of course.
