But one thing that added to the success of the movie was the undeniable contribution of the soundtracks with the pervasive musical ingenuity of Marvin Hamlisch and Scott Joplin.
Marvin Hamlisch was a respected composer that adapted multiple ragtime compositions by Scott Joplin in the album. George Roy Hill also covered the notes, narrating the background story and the soundtrack album was released with the help of Gil Rodin, the executive producer of “The Sting”.
The track has 13 songs composed in the “major key” with its jolly, inspirational and high-spirited vibes and a sort of nostalgic, melancholic and odd sentimentality, greatly influenced by Joplin’s music.
