What’s That Song? POSE
Not everyone puts stock in what a TV series’ Rotten Tomatoes rating is, but if you’re someone whose viewing habits live and die by how high a program’s percentage is, then here’s hoping you’re watching FX’s Pose, which currently sits at a staggering 97% as of this writing.
Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Steven Canals, Pose is set in the general timeframe of 1987-1988 and takes a look at different lifestyles in New York City at the time, including the rise of Donald Trump, the downtown social and literary scene, and the so-called “ball culture.” Of course, just by virtue of seeing the name “Ryan Murphy,” you can reasonably presume that the series is in possession of a pretty sweet soundtrack, and you are not wrong. In fact, we’ve put together a playlist which features 10 songs from the Rhino catalog that can be hearing during the course of the first season.
- Chaka Khan, “Ain’t Nobody”
- Laid Back, “White Horse” –
- Debbie Gibson “Only in My Dreams”
- Robert Plant, “Big Log”
- Madonna, “Vogue”
- Sweet Sensation, “Hooked on You”
- Whitesnake, “Is This Love”
- Tina Turner, “Private Dancer”
- Simply Red, “Holding Back the Years”
- Al B. Sure!, “Off On Your Own (Girl)”
As you can see, it’s all over the place, stylistically speaking, but so is Pose. Give the show a look, give the playlist a listen, and don’t be afraid to dance!
