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
- Ms. Laurn Hill
- A Tribe Called Quest
- Wu-Tang Clan
- Mobb Deep
- Method Man
- Eric B. & Rakim
- Big Daddy Kane
- LL Cool J
- 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‘?).
