Set in racially segregated Tennessee, "Memphis" tells the story of the forbidden love between a white radio DJ and up-and-coming African American club singer. 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."
