The album won the Golden Globe Award for "Best Original Score" and was nominated for a Grammy Award: "Best Score Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media". There is also use of orchestral works, such as Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Symphony No. 6 (Tchaikovsky). 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.
