The album won the Golden Globe Award for "Best Original Score."[2] It was also nominated for a Grammy Award: "Best Score Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media".[3]

The soundtrack makes use of orchestral works, such as Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 (Pathétique). It also uses Artie Shaw's composition "Nightmare" when Hughes is dealing with Faith, Ava and Katherine throughout the film. This was a piece personally chosen by Scorsese himself.[citation needed]
