New entry. Somewhat surprisingly, this has never been in our chart before. 1st of Williams' 6 entries.

Cementing the most successful partnership in film music, Steven Spielberg and John Williams strike gold once more with this timeless story of friendship. Williams captures, in music, a magic movie that did for BMX bikes what Brief Encounter did for steam trains. It's impossible to imagine the loveable alien and his friends swooping through the night sky on their bicycles without Williams's soaring music. Williams won his fourth Oscar for his work on this classic family film.
