The Classic FM Chart - Sunday 21 August 2016, 5pm

The Empire has well and truly struck back. Soundtracks by John Williams oust Cinema Classics from No.1.

Last week Cinema Classics - The Piano at the Movies spent a second week at No.1 and all the signs were that the Suicide Squad soundtrack was going to dethrone Chinese pianist See Siang Wong. But out of the blue Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and friends have swept into the Chart in the Millennium Falcon, taking up both the No.1 and No. 2 spots with the original soundtracks to Star Wars Episodes 5 and 6, respectively.

Elsewhere there's a fascinating new album at No.8 from Bafta-award winning Broadchurch composer Olafur Arnalds who has been travelling around his native Iceland, recording the voices and sounds of his fellow countrymen.
