The Movie Music Hall of Fame

About the Movie Music Hall of Fame

Here at Classic FM we're big fans of movie music – what could be more thrilling than John Williams's music for Star Wars or more moving than John Barry's epic score for Dances with Wolves?

Every year since 2009, Classic FM has asked its listeners to vote for their top three film soundtracks to find the nation's favourite movie music. 

Only music that has been specifically composed for a film is eligible for the vote – so sadly, the epic Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, which provides part of the soundtrack to 2001: A Space Odyssey, is not allowed! 

In 2016, the vote opens on 1 August and the results will be revealed online on 6 September and on air on 10 September with a special episode of Saturday Night at the Movies.
