Chariots of Fire Vangelis (Polydor, 1981)

The instrumental theme song Chariots of Fire was written and recorded by Vangelis for the 1981 film of the same name. On the soundtrack album, the instrumental was called Titles as it was heard in the film’s opening title sequence. Chariots of Fire made it all the way up to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts in 1982.

Today, at 71, Vangelis continues to compose, arrange and record.
