The Classic FM Chart - 1 March 2015, 5pm

The film that everyone's been talking about has a soundtrack that's this week's highest new entry.

Danny Elfman , best known for his music for Tim Burton's fantastic fantasies, has written the score for a fantasy of a slightly more adult kind.

Elfman's Fifty Shades of Grey original score is this week's highest new entry at No.5 in the Classic FM chart. 

It's a very contemporary sounding work, eschewing Elfman's trademark sound for something more reminiscent of Thomas Newman's The Shipping News, or Elfman's own Dolores Claiborne. Impressive, but not enough to unseat Andre Rieu who continues his reign at the top of the chart, ever since 2015 began.
