The music on The People v. O.J. Simpson

The People v. OJ Simpson
O.J. Simpson?

Now on Netflix, we have the The People v. O.J. Simpson. It is also noted that it does contain some popular songs in 1994-95. For those who had lived through the case (and that took a while for that to end), we know that this was the case of the century. We have got past the 20th anniversary in 2014.  Now, 22-23 years later, FX decides to make American Crime Story and their first season focuses on the historic O.J. Simpson case. Cuba Gooding Jr. plays O.J., John Travolta plays Bob Shaprio and also has a producer credit, David Schwimmer plays Rob Kardashian and a personal favorite of mine Courtney Vance plays Johnnie Cochran. Courtney Vance was known for being ADA Carver in Law & Order: Criminal Intent, along with Vincent D’Onofino, known for Gomer Pyle in Full Metal Jacket.

The music from The People v. O.J. Simpson has some of the best hits (and some bad ones) of the early to mid-1990s.

The hits:

“Sadeness Pt. I” by Enigma

“Sabotage” by The Beastie Boys

“Said I Love You… But I Lied” by Michael Bolton

“Everybody Dance Now” by C.C. Music Factory

“Fantastic Voyage” by Coolio

“What About Your Friends” by TLC

“Sour Times” by Portishead

“Kiss from a Rose” by Seal

“Natural One” by The Folk Implosion

“Everybody Everybody” by Black Box

and finally…

“All 4 Love” by Color Me Badd

I remember in 1993 that Color Me Badd was trying to look rough, it didn’t work so well.
