  1. What is the instrumental playing at episode 55’30” and on, before the Kurpt rap, at the end of episode 10 of Winning Time?

  2. The song towards the end of episode 10, when Magic win the game from a childhood flashback. It 42:28 minutes to about 43:35 minutes. A Jazz sound…

  3. What is the background tune that plays from the 56:27 though the 57:53 mark on the rise of the lakers dynasty: promised land episode. Thanks.

When asking about what song is playing during a scene, please specify around what minute.
