1. Hugo - Original Soundtrack - Howard Shore
Howard Shore creates a beautiful score. This opening scene shows his mastery at work as the music moves with the movements and the clock sounds compliment the strings.

Scenes aren't really available yet on Youtube from this film; but here's one of the songs used perfectly.

5. The Bootleg Series, Vol. 7: No Direction Hom... - Bob Dylan
Scorsese can take a figure like Bob Dylan and make him even more interesting.

6. The Aviator - Various Artists
Unlike most Scorsese films, this one was more score-heavy. He exercised the talents of Howard Shore and still created memorable music in an unconventional way.
But there were also grain performances from all three Wainwrights!

U2 represents the Irish here in the ending of the film:

20. Taxi Driver [VINYL] - Bernard Hermann
The Sax is perfect with the driving scenes. If I were to ever drive a cab, this is what I would want playing all the time.

Stehako's rating:


 

Scorsese's films are dynamic and top-notch in every aspect of the film making process. His music choices and direction is one of my favorite aspects.
I hope this list give you a good idea as to what I'm talking about


Below is an ok montage of many of his films overlayed with music from these films.



*I'd like to give a special thanks to Robbie Robertson for his work with contributing/consulting in Marty's films like Shutter Island, Gangs of New York, The Departed, and Raging Bull.

DiCaprio is right, Scorsese is like the Picasso of film. Genius.
