Original 'Jurassic Park' theme is now a Top 10 hit

Posted on

Universal City Studios, Inc. & Amblin Entertainment, Inc.

Jurassic World hits theaters today, but the action franchise’s original installment is stealing some of its thunder. Twenty-two years after Jurassic Park came out, the film’s John Williams-penned theme has become a Top 10 hit on a Billboard chart, breaking through to No. 6 on the June 13 edition Classical Digital Songs survey.

Back in 1993, the Jurassic Park soundtrack hit No. 36 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, but John Williams is no Taylor Swift or Wiz Khalifa. The Classical Digital Songs survey is a far cry from the Hot 100, where, alas, the Jurassic Park theme is nowhere to be seen.

Check out some live footage below of Williams himself conducting the iconic theme, and you read our Jurassic World review here. (Spoiler: We liked it.)
