LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- TCM says Hollywood's "King Kong," "Star Wars," "The Graduate" and "Saturday Night Fever" have made its list of influential movie soundtracks.

The cable TV network said it released its list in honor of Sunday's Grammy Awards ceremony.

"It is nearly impossible to think of certain films without remembering their music scores. 'Casablanca,' 'Laura,' 'An Affair to Remember,' 'The Magnificent Seven' -- the list is endless," TCM host and film historian Robert Osborne said in a statement. "Our list celebrates the most memorable and groundbreaking soundtracks, the ones which took the art of film music to new levels and made the most lasting impact on the world of movies."
