Discovery Travel & Living presents songs that changed the world

Music transcends all boundaries and over the years, songs have served as catalysts for the transformation of cultural and political landscapes. Discovery Travel & Living has taken the initiative to profile some revolutionary music that has left an indelible mark on the world by premiering a series called ‘Impact: Songs that Changed the World’.

The series, which began on October 16, is aired every Sunday at 8.30 pm with a repeat telecast the following Saturday at 4.30 pm.

Divided into 12 episodes, ‘Impact: Songs that Changed the World’ features interviews with recording artistes, cultural and political pundits, religious leaders, radio and television commentators, musicologists, sociologists and even music aficionados.

According to Aditya Tripathi, Brand Director, Discovery Travel & Living, “‘Impact: Songs that Changed the World’ presents fascinating stories of songs that played an instrumental role in major political, social and economic movements. The series highlights how music, whether pop, rock, country or rap, has a penetrating impact on people’s lifestyles.”

The series has compiled some of the famous songs ranging from Bob Marley’s freedom anthem ‘I Shot the Sheriff’ to Elvis Presley’s brash and rebellious ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ to Aretha Franklin’s female empowerment mega hit ‘Respect’, to Beatles’ ‘I want to hold your hand’.

While one might not agree with all the songs that have made to the list as ‘changing the world’, still it makes interesting viewing the thought that went behind them. As they say, if music be the food of life, play on.
