The music from Chariots of Fire by Vangelis is an iconic and recognizable piece of film score history. The sweeping electronic melodies evoke a sense of grandeur and triumph, perfectly capturing the film's themes of perseverance and determination. The main theme, played on a solo synthesizer, has become synonymous with achievement and victory.
In addition to its iconic music, Chariots of Fire is also famous for winning the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1982 in addition to Best Original Score, solidifying its place as one of the most beloved sports movies (and scores) of all time.
