The Bluesy Soundtrack of 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

I have yet to see the movie, however knowing director Martin Scorsese's love for blues music (he has included blues songs in many of his movies, such as Goodfellas), I knew there would be some blues music in there, and my instinct proved right!

The soundtrack features many blues and jazz songs, from Cannonball Adderley to Ahmad Jamal to Bo Diddley to Howlin' Wolf. Of course not the whole soundtrack is composed of blues and jazz, but if you want a solid music collection this soundtrack is available now.

Here's the tracklist, and below a live performance for Howlin' Wolf's 'Smokestack Lightnin':

 1. Mercy, Mercy, Mercy – Cannonball Adderley 
 2. Dust My Broom – Elmore James
 3. Bang! Bang! – Joe Cuba 
 4. Movin’ On 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 (Live At The Pershing Lounge/1958) – Ahmad Jamal 
 9. Smokestack Lightning – Howlin’ Wolf 
 10. Hey Leroy, Your Mama’s Callin’ You – The Jimmy Castor Bunch 
 11. Double Dutch – Malcolm McLaren 
 12. Never Say Never – Romeo Void 
 13. Meth Lab Zoso Sticker – 7Horse 
 14. Road Runner (Single Version) – Bo Diddley 
 15. Mrs. Robinson (LP Version) – The Lemonheads
