Hear the Songs From The Get Down You Won’t Find on the Soundtrack

4 minute read

Now that you’ve had the weekend to marathon The Get Down and pretend you’re the honorary seventh member of the Fantastic crew, you’ve finally found the perfect red sneakers to hop from roof to roof in, and you’re ready for all the music.

That means you’ll want more than just those 24 excellent songs on the official soundtrack, which includes some of the classics and the original jams. Plenty of the best songs star in more than a couple of the episodes, and they all weave a magnificent soundscape fit for the kings and queens of New York. Ranging from the DJ favorites (Walter Murphy’s “A Fifth of Beethoven” from The Grandmaster Flash’s The Official Adventures of Grandmaster Flash!) to that one that played pretty much every time something happened (Can’s “Vitamin C!”), here are 67 of the tracks you hear on the show—excluding the ones on the soundtrack—listed below to keep you howling in the street until next year when part two comes out.
