Product Description

Amazon.com

With Goodfellas, Martin Scorsese completely reinvented the way popular songs--instead of a made-to-measure score--can be used all the way through a movie to emphasize mood and action. He continues in that vein for The Departed, whose soundtrack is full of tunes by classic acts. If a theme emerges, it's great guitar work: on Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb," on the Allman Brothers' "One Way Out," on Badfinger's "Baby Blue," and on Roy Buchanan's "Sweet Dreams." (Even the two selections from Howard Shore's score highlight that approach, with performances by Marc Ribot and Larry Saltzman on "The Departed Tango" and by Sharon Isbin on "Beacon Hill.") A couple of numbers also deliver slight twists: the version of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" is the live one from 1990, when it was performed with Van Morrison and the Band; and the Beach Boys' obscure 1972 song "Sail On, Sailor" isn’t sung by its cowriter Brian Wilson. Thankfully, LaVern Baker and Patsy Cline help offset a very white, very male, very classic-rock selection. While it looks as if Scorsese stopped listening to music sometime around 1975, Beantown's Dropkick Murphys do contribute "I'm Shipping Up to Boston," a nod to the movie's setting. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

The Departed finally won Martin Scorsese the long overdue Oscar he has so very much deserved over the years. Like Goodfellas and Casino before it, The Departed utilized a soundtrack of previously available songs to set the mood and capture the feel of the film, and this soundtrack succeeds on just about all counts. The blistering live rendition of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" by Roger Waters, Van Morrison, and The Band starts the disc off, and is followed by classic tracks from the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, the Allman Brothers Band, and Patsy Cline. Sandwiched in between these older acts and the two score tracks contributed from composer Howard Shore, is the instantly catchy "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" from punk favorites the Dropkick Murphys, which you'll no doubt remember nodding your head to when watching the film. There may not be anything featured here that you haven't heard before or seen somewhere else, but the soundtrack for The Departed is a blast regardless and wonderfully captures the feel of the film. In those regards alone, the soundtrack, much like the film itself, is a pleasently wonderful treat.

Ah, the movie soundtrack. What a consumer dilemma. If I love a movie this much, and it is directed by the Christopher Columbus of the use of popular songs in movies (instead of just a written score ), won't I love the soundtrack as well? Unfortuantely, very rarely. When great directors follow Scorcese's lead and use pop songs to move their films along we are often much more attracted to those soundtracks. Who wants to listen to 50 minutes of a written score when we can listen to The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys? What cannot be overlooked is that the filmmakers use only snippets of songs. The best example seems to be in "Goodfellas" when Martin Scorcese uses Clapton to actually follow the movement of his camera on a tracking shot focusing on the pink Cadillac with a dead mobster and his dead wife. Maybe the 2nd best use by Scorcese is the blast of the Dropkick Murphys at the beginning of "The Departed" to set the stage for Irish/Boston violence. The thing is, most of the other songs on this soundtrack, and others, are rarely needed to listen to in their entirety. "Boobie Nights' is even a better example. How brilliant the disco music moves the porn stars in the coke-fueled nightclubs. Listen to the entirety of the tracks at home, though , and we are reminded of why we yelled "Disco sucks" when we were Rock n roll teenagers. So, buy the bands who you like best on these soundtracks. Buy Dropkick Murphys' Warriors Code, for instance. Soundtracks just never seem to make me relive a great movie. And I keep trying over and over again. Must be obsessive compulsive.

The strongest song of the whole film, without a doubt, is the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter". Of course, the soundtrack doesn't include it.

Great Movie soundtrack. We listen to it over & over again. Insturmental of "sweet Dreams" is "The Bomb". Should have ordered 2 CDs so my wife wouldn't keep borrowing mine!

Can't beat Van Morrison's rendition of Comfortably Numb. This soundtrack really does the movie justice.

I love this soundtrack because it perfectly captures the essence of the film "The Departed," and also really evokes the spirit of Boston. This CD consists of many classic favorites as well as some newer tunes that feature great guitar solos. There isn't a single crappy track on this album, but my favorite songs include the Rogers Waters/Van Morrison version of "Comfortably Numb" (very relaxing and also incredibly long, but in a good way), "Baby Blue" by Badfinger, and the fantastic "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" by Dropkick Murphys, which is the best song in the movie. This is a fabulous soundtrack that fans of "The Departed" will enjoy, but it's also an awesome collection of music that's a lot of fun to listen to while driving fast in your car with the windows down.

The Opera Song in "The Departed"
You're right; it's the famous quintet, 'Chi mi frena in tal momento' from Lucia by Donizetti.
You might like to get an excerpts recording; all the music in Lucia is wonderful and any version with Joan Sutherland would be great. I didn't stay long enough at the movie last night to see the credits... Read More

Ditto that. Can't commit funds until I make sure what I really want is on the disc.

only song missing
I agree but the most egregious error was leaving off John Lennon's Well Well Well off the soundtrack...I might have bought it otherwise.

Its the Dropkick Murphys' song "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" that really bangs in this flick. Check it out.
