The Wolf of Wall Street's soundtrack competes with the movie

See also

With the recent release of Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf On Wall Street and it’s numerous accolades, it can really be no surprise that the soundtrack is beyond exceptional. Considering Scorsese’s best work is portrayed in his period films, the soundtrack fits the modern day frenzy of greed depicted in this Wall Street backbreaker.

Although there are sixty tracks associated with the film, the official soundtrack has led the movie to be dubbed as “a comic grand opera,” as per the ruling of THR’s Todd McCarthy. While the soundtrack has already been digitally released via iTunes and Amazon (the in-store release is set for Jan. 7), there are sixteen songs from the entire roster that truly give you a run for your money. Nonetheless, here is what happens when the masterminds of Scorsese, music supervisor Randall Poster, and executive music producer Robbie Robertson come together to make possibly the best film of the year:

1. "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!" - Cannonball Adderley
2. "Dust My Broom" - Elmore James
3. "Bang! Bang!" - Jo Cuba
4. "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" - Billy Joel
5. “C'est Si Bon" - Eartha Kitt
6. "Goldfinger" - Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
7. "Pretty Thing" - Bo Diddley
8. "Moonlight in Vermont" - Ahmad Jamal Trio
9. "Smokestack Lightning" - Howlin' Wolf
10. “Hey Leroy, Your Mama's Callin' You" - Jimmy Castor
11. "Double Dutch" - Malcolm McLaren
12. "Never Say Never" - Romeo Void
13. "Meth Lab Zoso Sticker" - 7Horse
14. "Road Runner" - Bo Diddley
15. "Mrs. Robinson" - The Lemonheads
16. "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" - Allen Toussaint
