Fact File
Top 10 movie music
1 Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - Howard Shore
2 Star Wars - John Williams
3 Schindler's List - John Williams
4 The Empire Strikes Back - John Williams
5 Gladiator - Hans Zimmer
6 ET - John Williams
7 Out of Africa - John Barry
8 Lawrence of Arabia - Maurice Jarre
9 Dances With Wolves - John Barry
10 Titanic - James Horner

It beat old classics like Star Wars which took the number two spot, whilst The Empire Strikes Back was voted fourth greatest.

But the music to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone didn't work its magic, only making it to number 14 on the list.

The US composer who wrote it - John Williams - was the most popular writer on the list though.

Howard Shore who wrote the music to the LOTR fantasy, was very pleased with the result.

The list of the top 30 film soundtracks was voted for by over 52,000 listeners of radio station Classic FM.
