The Thrill of the Conclusion of Daisy Jones and The Six (No Spoilers)

Recounting the rise and fall of artists in the music world is nothing new, and it’s not always easy to be realistic or exciting. Even more so when it comes to a fictional band. The obvious comparison with Almost Famous is inevitable and one of the positive options of the two contents was the choice of original music. However, in the case of Daisy Jones and The Six, the Aurora album is crucial for storytelling, after all it is the story of his recording, his songs and lyrics as well as the tour that make up the mythical band imagined by Taylor Jenkins Reid, inspired by the backstage of the band Fleetwood Mac and the Rumors album.

With the conclusion of the series, let’s talk about the 10th episode and the work as a whole, one of the best of 2023, without disappointing readers’ expectations. Round from start to finish, Daisy Jones and The Six made Riley Keough a star and elevated Sam Clafin‘s popularity as a lead. The chemistry between the two, as well as their charisma when dealing with sensitive issues as delicate as alcoholism, drug addiction, insecurity, remorse and decision-making power, were essential to the success of the series. Within two minutes we believed they “were” Daisy and Billy, two broken and lost souls, who found each other in the song.

The crowd for the love story of the two was also well built. There are no villains, no victims, but painful and real circumstances. The fake documentary format (for those who haven’t read the book), brings such an important turn in the last minutes of the final episode that tears will be inevitable. Just as it may have seemed until the penultimate episode that the musicians would have to overcome internal conflicts to stay together, but it makes sense when they choose another path. In summary: great script, tied, delicate and exciting.

I’m trying hard to avoid spoilers because – again – for non-readers, surprise is important. The story of Daisy Jones and Billy Dunne was born in Taylor’s imagination when she was moved by the deep love between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, which although far from healthy, existed and still exists.

With artistic freedom, Billy and Daisy (even with their drug and drinking problems), are more “healthy” because let’s face it, Stevie and Lindsey’s love-hate relationship, which many claim is marketing, is something that’s far away. to be psychologically recommendable, and the couple in the series have fewer problems between them. Even because it is an incredibly deep love story of two people who barely kiss each other, every physical and loving relationship between them is in the music.

Considering then that the proposal was not to talk about music, but about LOVE, Daisy Jones and the Six achieves the objective with flying colors. The love that brought Simone Jackson (Nabiyah Be) and Bernie (Ayesha Harris) together – inspired by the life of Whitney Houston – or the love that brought the band together, the couples within it, the love of genuine friendships, all the feelings that lead to final decisions of each of them.

The use of the soundtrack was perfect too, with beautiful songs, easy to memorize. Look At Us Now, the first single from the album Aurora, had perfect insertions, even if clichés. When she returns, it closes the cycle and naturally gains another perspective.

If we opened Daisy Jones and the Six with Patti Smith‘s classic Dancing Barefoot, it was even more exciting to close with Rolling Stones and Shine a Light. Another post!
