Warning! SPOILERS about Daisy Jones & The Six episodes 1 to 3 ahead.Amazon Prime Video’s Daisy Jones & The Six has a compelling soundtrack that fully captures the early 1970s musical atmosphere while including original songs for the multiple bands that are part of the stories and rock bands that existed in the past. The Amazon rock drama follows the rise to fame and the subsequent hasty breakup of Daisy Jones & The Six, born for the union of artist Daisy Jones and rock band The Six, who both worked with producer Teddy Price. Although Taylor Jenkins Reid’s book already perfectly captured the rock music world of California in the 1970s, Prime Video’s Daisy Jones & The Six manages to up the story with plenty of original music.
Despite Daisy Jones & The Six including various famous rock songs from the early 1970s, as the episodes go on, the rock drama focuses more on the music from the show’s original bands. The Amazon’s Daisy Jones & The Six‘s soundtrack includes original music for many musicians that are part of the story, including lead singer Daisy Jones, her best friend Simone Jackson, The Winters, both the Dunne Brothers, and The Six.
