"Snowfall"'s Retro Soundtrack Takes Us Back to the '80s

"Snowfall" Wednesdays are finally back on FX. The gritty crime saga — which follows the story of drug lord and budding real estate tycoon Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) as he navigates the 1980s crack epidemic — made its glorious return for season five on Feb. 23, wasting no time getting down to business. Between Reed Thompson's Teddy McDonald's (Carter Hudson) surprise return to Los Angeles and the Saint family's organisation falling apart, we can already tell we're in for a wild ride this season.

If there's one thing we can count on "Snowfall" for it's action-packed episodes and a whole lot of drama. But the unsung hero of the series is always its blast-from-the-past soundtrack that delivers a mix of '60s, '70s, and '80s hits. Ahead, listen to every song featured on "Snowfall"'s fifth season so far.
