'Star Wars' Named Britain's Favorite Movie Soundtrack

Star Wars has been named Britain's favorite movie soundtrack. Results of a just-released BBC poll find the sci-fi adventure outpointing GreaseWest Side Story and The Sound of Music. But none of those were the runner-up. Ennio Morricone's score for the western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was. Interestingly, despite being "born" in Britain and spinning off several hit songs over the past five decades, none of the James Bond films made the Top 10. Neither did Saturday Night Fever, the best-selling soundtrack album of all time.

John Williams won an Oscar for his Star Wars score, while Meco's discofied cover of "Star WarsTheme/Cantina Band" reached number-one on the pop charts in 1977.
