After reading about the unfortunate, and seemingly unfounded, cancellation of the original Amazon series, Good Girls Revolt, we needed to see for ourselves what all of the fuss was about.
We couldn’t stop watching, or listening! At first, it seemed like an easy task, putting together music from the late 60’s and 70’s but the show took it one step further. The soundtrack was so well curated, and each song, so expertly timed, that the music truly elevated the quality of the already outstanding show to new heights.
Gary Calamar, the show’s music supervisor, also music supervised such well known shows as Six Feet Under, True Blood and Dexter– so clearly he has a knack for it.
Here is a comprehensive and almost complete playlist of the songs used in the show.
Some take issue with the show’s inaccuracies, however, the show explicitly states that despite being inspired by real events, the specific details have been embellished and/or altered. Sometimes literary and historical liberties are necessary in a creative show like this when covering such a socially broad and all-encompassing span of time, so don’t let that ruin the show for you.
Here you can read about some of the most contested storylines.

The show is currently being shopped around and we sincerely hope another streaming service sees the need to keep it around for another season.
