There are moments in history that shape our lives, and there are songs that define those moments. The new CNN Original Series Soundtracks: Songs that Defined History, from Executive Producer Dwayne Johnson, will explore the music that is tied to iconic moments in history, and the impact of that music on our society. 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, amplifying and ultimately defining these seismic events in our collective history.

  • Really gets beneath the power of music...

    By Doyle Hinson
    I've only seen the first episode, but it really gets to the heart of how music can move people and influence change in the world. They use a great deal of archival footage of events and performances interwoven with amazing interviews from people who lived through the events depicted and many who were important participants as well. Very well done. Can't wait to see more....
  • Powerful, moving, explosive. A must-watch.
