You're The One That I Want - the John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John song from Grease - is the biggest-selling movie track of all time, research based on UK sales has revealed.

The figures, compiled for Radio 2, count down the top-selling tracks which were recorded especially for films.

Love Is All Around, covered by Wet Wet Wet for Hugh Grant's Four Weddings And A Funeral, came second.

Stevie Wonder's I Just Called To Say I Love You, which featured in The Woman In Red, is the third-biggest seller in the UK.

Everything I Do (I Do It For You) - the Bryan Adams ballad from the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, which remained at the top of the UK charts for 16 weeks - is fourth.

Another Grease track - Summer Nights from the 1978 movie - was fifth.

Tony Blackburn will count down the top 30 biggest-selling songs of all time from the movies on Radio 2.
