Winston Churchill once said: "The best argument against Democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter." And we think it's fair to say that the same notion can be applied to the UK's voting habits when it comes to film soundtracks.
Because the soundtrack to Titanic has been voted the best film soundtrack of all time.
The survey, which was carried out by London's Royal Albert Hall, saw objectively (totally) the worst Oscar winner of all time beat Star Wars, The Great Escape and Jurassic Park for this most-coveted of awards.
"You never forget a great film score: from the epic to the intimate, movie music has an unparalleled ability to evoke emotion," said Artistic Director at the Royal Albert Hall, Lucy Noble. "We asked film fans to pick their favourite, and there's no doubt about the winner: James Horner's sumptuous, heartbreaking score for Titanic."
Sumptuous, Lucy? This isn't a dark chocolate fondant we're talking about here...
She added: "It's great to see the love for The Magnificent Seven and The Great Escape, two classics that will feature in our unique celebration of Elmer Bernstein's life and legacy, hosted by movie legend John Landis."

This is a bullshit list, Lucy... and you know it.
