Next Episode of Soundtracks: Songs That Defined History is
Soundtracks: Songs That Defined History is an eight-part series executive-produced by Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Brian Gewirtz that will explore the music tied to iconic moments in history. Every episode will cover a tragedy, triumph, or the start of a movement – and the music that came to define it. From the March on Washington to the riots at Stonewall, the moon landing to Hurricane Katrina – music has played an integral part in celebrating, criticizing, and amplifying these seismic events in our collective history. Soundtracks is produced by Show of Force and Seven Bucks Productions.
The series premiere explores the music that kept the spirit of the civil rights movement alive following King's death–from James Brown's black power anthem, "Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)" to Kendrick Lamar's searing protest song, "Alright," inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. The music in the episode celebrates the strength and solidarity of the African American experience while reminding us how far we still have to go.
Following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, songs like Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind" took on a new and heightened meaning and politically charged country music took center stage.
