Les Misérables: Highlights from the Motion Picture Soundtrack

"The soundtrack to the film 'Les Misérables' is No. 1 on the latest Billboard album chart, beating out Mumford & Sons by a hair in the sleepy sales week after Christmas. The soundtrack, released by Republic Records, sold 92,000 copies in its second week out, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That is actually a 32 percent drop from the week before — which included Christmas and is increasingly becoming known in the music industry as 'the week when millions of iTunes gift cards are redeemed' — when the album was No. 2" (Ben Sisario, "'Les Misérables' Soundtrack Storms to No. 1," New York Times, 1/9/13).
