The Story Of

About the Project

Every hit song has a story. “The Story Of…” takes a curious and hungry approach to sharing the stories behind phenomenal songs. We unpack the moments of inspiration that powered the nostalgic melodies and genius hooks that have stayed with us for decades. Each episode explores the history, musical roots, and lasting cultural impact of an iconic song, as told by those who created it. We dissect the track’s trajectory from inception to global explosion, and use songs as vehicles to tell deeper stories about the artist’s experience, their creative process, the pitfalls of fame and success, the harsh realities of the music industry, and music’s ability to transcend boundaries to become more than just a song, but a unifying conduit for human connection.
