sorting two corresponding lists?

I wonder if someone could help me with sorting two corresponding lists.
For instance the first list contains some items, and the second list
contains their value (higher is better)
items = [apple, car, town, phone]
values = [5, 2, 7, 1]
I would like to sort the 'items' list based on the 'values' list so
that I end up with the following two list:
items = [town, apple, car, phone]
values = [7, 5, 2, 1]
So I would like to keep the corresponding value still corresponding
after the sorting.
Is there an easy/nice/Pythonic way to do this?
