"Soul Music" is a seven-part animated
televisionadaptation of the book of the same name by Terry Pratchett, produced by Cosgrove Hall, and first broadcast on 12 May 1997. It was the first film adaptation of an entire " Discworld" novel (following the " Welcome to the Discworld" short, which was based on a fragment of the novel " Reaper Man"). The series soundtrackwas also released on CD but is now out of production.
The series closely follows the plot of the novel, which, like many of Pratchett's novels it introduces an element of modern society into the magical and vaguely late medieval, early modern world of the Disc, in this case Rock and Roll music and stardom, with nearly disastrous consequences. It also introduces
Susan Sto Helit, daughter of Mort and Ysabelland granddaughter of Death.
The series takes the association of the "Band with Rocks In" with
the Beatleseven further than the book does, evolving their style from 1950s rock and early 1960s beat music(and mixing-bowl haircuts) in Ankh-Morpork, to acid rockin Scrote, to spiritual hippie rock in Quirm. In Sto Lat, they sound like the Jimi HendrixExperience or Bad Company, but are dressed in clothes similar to the Beatles on the cover of the " Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album. Also in Quirm, Buddy says that the band is 'more popular than cheeses,' referring to John Lennon's famous quote proclaiming the Beatles to be more popular than Jesus. In Pseudopolis, their outfits and style resemble the Blues Brothers. Crash's band is also given the name "Socks Pastels".
