Goodfellas [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Goodfellas [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]



For GOODFELLAS, his hard-hitting epic tracing the rise and fall of a Mafia henchman, director Martin Scorsese chose not to use original, traditional underscore,but rather chart the progression of narrative events through popular music. Tony Bennett's "Rags to Riches," Bobby Darin's "Beyond the Sea," and Billy Ward and His Dominoes' "Stardust" set the scene early in the picture, as the chief protagonist rises swiftly through the ranks. As the mounting pressure on the characters increases from cops and the FBI, the music reflects the film's increasingly frenzied tone with dynamic contributions from Muddy Waters ("Manish Boy") and Cream ("Sunshine of Your Love").
