First things first: why should anyone in South Africa care about songs from an American law drama? The answer: because we all need a break once in a while. The show “Suits” has become a pop culture phenomenon, captivating fans the world over. While it may be nothing like the law in practice (particularly since the American system of law is drastically different to that of South Africa), the show does set “life goals” for many aspiring lawyers.
Goals like having a top-floor office. Helping people solve massive disputes. Being the best. Whether your favourite character is the smooth closer Harvey Specter, the brilliant fraud Mike Ross, the boss Jessica Pearson, or the conniving senior partner Louis Litt, one thing is irrefutable: the show’s ingenious choice of music.
