Movie fans have crowned the music from The Lord Of The Rings the best ever film soundtrack. The epic fantasy flick beat sci-fi classic Star Wars into second place, ahead of two other John Williams-penned scores, Schindler's List (3) and The Empire Strikes Back (4). Howard Shore - who wrote the score to last year's hit film - says, "I'm as thrilled as can be. It's great to translate Tolkien's work into music." Others in the list voted for by 52,000 listeners of UK radio station Classic FM include Gladiator, Titanic, Doctor Zhivago and 2001: A Space Odyssey .
