The Princess Soundtrack: Every Song in the 2022 Hulu Movie
- “White Wedding” by Bukola (01:27:00): The Princess soundtrack song is featured at the end of the film. During the climax, the title character beheads Julius during a surprise attack. Moments later, The King (Ed Stoppard) announces his daughter as the rightful heir to the throne. Then, a merc emerges and says “There she is!” as the Hulu movie concludes. “White Wedding” kicks in during the final shot; the title and lyrics correlate with a martial union that almost happened. In addition, The Princess soundtrack song thematically parallels the infamous “Red Wedding” from Game of Thrones season 3, episode 9 (“The Rains of Castamere”). “White Wedding” originally released in October 1992 and reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track is featured in Dario Argento’s 1985 film Demons and in the 1998 Adam Sandler comedy The Wedding Singer. “White Wedding” is also performed in Greek during My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016).
