Of all the '101s' and 'Essential Collections' flooding the market lately, none can compare to this four-disc, 72-song compilation of memorable movie tunes. While many compilations simply throw all the songs together randomly, the outstanding Movie930 groups them carefully into four themes.

Disc one is a celebration of 70s disco fever: dig out your dancing shoes for songs by Abba, from Grease, and classics such as I Will Survive and Saturday Night Fever.

Next up are themes from well-loved romantic comedies like Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones' Diary - great for Hugh Grant fans.

Then come the timeless classics. Blockbusters such as Casablanca, Breakfast At Tiffany's and The First Blood gave us unforgettable scenes as well as treasured tunes. The final disc in the collection includes seven brilliant instrumental tunes from the likes of Somewhere In Time and Love Story.

Fans of Chinese films will be surprised - and pleased - to find tunes from Wong Kar-wai films slotted in between favourites such as Unchained Melody and When I Fall In Love.

If you like films and are inspired by the music that makes them great, get a copy of Movie930. Now.
