Theme from 'Love Story'
Despite competing with a range of classical favourites in the soundtrack, Francis Lai's mournful main theme has stood the test of time.
Two star cross'd lovers believe that their relationship will conquer all. Francis Lai's soundtrack was as beautiful as the film. Not only did Francis Lai win an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for his work on A Love Story in 1 970, but he also earned himself a place in the charts when the soundtrack album went to No. 2 in the Billboard album charts and the film's theme, "Where Do I Begin" became a hit single for traditional pop singer Andy Williams. Lai also successfully recorded the song with a full orchestra, and he went on to write the music for the 1978 Love Story sequel, Oliver's Story.
