The Greatest Showman topped by musical classic in UK poll of best movie soundtracks

After proving doubting critics wrong, The Greatest Showman went on to be a surprise hit following its Christmas 2017 release. Early the next year, the film topped the UK box office and saw fans returning in their droves for sing-a-longs, plus the album went on top the charts around the world. But despite all that success, the Hugh Jackman musical is not quite the UK’s favourite movie soundtrack of all time.

To celebrate the release of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Showcase Cinemas surveyed 2000 Brits last month.

And nearly a quarter of UK fans voted for John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John’s hit musical Grease to the top spot.

Just behind was Dirty Dancing and ABBA movie sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

Here are the full top 10 of the UK’s favourite movie soundtracks of all time:
