Playlist: Scorsese

Published By

Every Friday, we’ll hook you up with a playlist of tracks we’re listening to in the office and into the weekend.

Head over to Netflix and watch Goodfellas. As the closing credits roll (and Sid Vicious snarls out “My Way”) you think to yourself: They don’t make movies like that any more. But then The Irishman starts playing (with a killer Five Satins do-wop tune) and you’re like, Oh wait, they do make movies like that. Martin Scorsese makes movies like that. And he punctuates those movies with songs that strengthen and intensify what was already strong and intense (Dropkick Murphys in The Departed, the three-peat of “Gimme Shelter”). Here’s our playlist of the best songs to grace Scorsese films. All of which beat the pants off of egg noodles and ketchup.
