LISTEN: The Last Dance Spotify Playlist

Looking to cut through the daily minutiae with some A1 tunes? A collection of classic throwbacks that’ll have you firing on all cylinders? Well then feast your earholes on The Last Dance Spotify playlist – the official soundtrack of the series, and the non-official soundtrack to your day.

The songs within this curated list – both from and inspired by the ESPN documentary series – owe their existence to quite the line-up of artists. Opening with the obligatory ‘Chicago Bulls Theme Song’ by The Alan Parsons Project, a tune that’s rich with a sense of occasion, it soon delves into the meat of 90s hip-hop and R&B.

Names you will definitely be familiar with include the likes of:

  • Run DMC
  • Coolio
  • Nas
  • Ms. Laurn Hill
  • A Tribe Called Quest
  • OutKast
  • Diddy
  • Biggie
  • Wu-Tang Clan
  • Prince
  • Mobb Deep
  • Method Man
  • Eric B. & Rakim
  • Big Daddy Kane
  • LL Cool J
  • Common
  • and Janet Jackson

There are, of course, a handful of outliers. Both in era and genre. For example, Chance the Rapper and Drake & Future; as well as Simon & Garfunkel and Queen. Rest assured, the inclusion of the aforementioned certainly make sense (I mean… how can you have a Michael Jordan documentary without Jumpman‘?).
