Set in racially segregated Tennessee, "Memphis" follows a white radio DJ who tries to change the world and an African American club singer looking for a big break. The New York Times says its music "evokes the powerhouse funk of James Brown, the hot guitar riffs of Chuck Berry and the smooth harmonies of the Temptations." The score was written by Bon Jovi founding member David Bryan.
