That playlist can be viewed below.MORE: Three flaws from documentary series ‘The Last Dance’If you’re curious about how the soundtrack was put together, director Jason Hehir explained his process to The New York Times. Rudy Chung, the music supervisor of the series, told the Times the filmmakers initially wanted to use contemporary music for the series.“But I think we pretty quickly realized that the best thing was to tell the story with songs from the era,” Hehir said.Interestingly enough, Hehir said his crew had a unique plan that would involve current rappers such as Kendrick Lamar covering older rap songs. However, that plan was scrapped as it became too time-consuming. It’s also interesting that hip-hop was used frequently throughout the series despite Jordan’s reported dislike for the genre.“The entire story of the Bulls for someone like me, who’s 43 years old, is grounded in nostalgia,” Hehir said. “I really wanted to reflect the music of the times in telling the story of the ’80s and ’90s and the world the Bulls were living in.” The entire Spotify playlist for “The Last Dance” is nearly four hours long and features 55 songs. The caption reads, “Music from and inspired by ‘The Last Dance.'” So some songs, such as “Jumpman” from Drake and Future, may appear in the playlist but weren’t actually in the documentary.The official list of songs featured in the documentary can be seen in the following tweet and it features 29 songs.The Last dance soundtrack.
