TAKE THAT TOPS FOR FILM TUNES.

Byline: ROBERT DEX

TAKE That have taken top spot in a new survey of the most played movie tracks.

Their 2007 hit Rule The World, which has a lead vocal by Gary Barlow, featured in the film Stardust.

They were followed by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes' Dirty Dancing anthem (I've Had) The Time of My Life.

Girl group All Saints were third with Pure Shores, which featured in The Beach.

Research by industry rights body PPL included the number of plays on radio and in shops, pubs and clubs.

The top 10 also included two Bee Gees songs from the disco classic Saturday Night Fever and Stealers Wheel's Stuck In The Middle With You, which featured in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs.

PPL's Jonathan Morrish said: "Music can enhance the viewer's experience, which is why film-makers go to such lengths to get the right music for a film.

"Music can make the experience unforgettable."
