Oscar nominations: 'Les Miserables' soundtrack is a top seller

It's been a good week for "Les Miserables," which was nominated this morning for the Academy Award for best picture. Its songs are more than 25 years old, but that isn't stopping the movie's fans from rushing out to buy (and presumably download) the soundtrack album to the new movie version of the beloved stage musical.
