A Harry Potter Playlist

By now, it shouldn’t be a secret that I love Harry Potter.  I have a giant playlist for the Prehistoric Chicken novel, that has every Harry Potter-related song I own on it.

But this is not that playlist.  Instead it is a selection of songs that I keep listening to over and over.  It includes both wizard rock and songs from the Harry Potter soundtracks.

  • Rockin’ Out At Hogwarts by Gred and Forge would be on there.  Their music is hilarious, and this is a fun song.  I always want to sing along to it.
  • Flash, Bang, Done by Oliver Boyd And The Remembralls: Starting with this song, every song is either by Oliver Boyd And The Remembralls or on one of the soundtracks.
  • Just A Hufflepuff: I love this song.  Mostly because Hufflepuff is the house that I identify with the most.
  • Spells And Scars: I love that it’s told from the perspective of the Death Eaters.  And I love the music.  There’s 2 different versions (one acoustic, one not) and I don’t which one I like better.
  • We Are The D.A.: This would be a good theme song for the D.A.
  • Flight Of The Prince: I love this song, and like Spells And Scars, there’s 2 different versions.  I like both, but I think I prefer the acoustic version.
  • ’til Death: Love this song!  It’s another one told from the perspective of Death Eaters, and I love the music more than anything.  It’s haunting.
  • Dumbledore’s Army is the first song from the soundtracks- It’s from Order Of The Phoenix, in case anyone is wondering.  There’s something very hopeful about the song.
  • Mischief Managed! is from Prisoner of Azkaban, and it’s a medley of a lot of the songs on the soundtrack.  It captures the overall feel of the movie really well.
  • Obliviate is from Deathly Hallows, Part One.  There’s something powerful and haunting, and one of the few songs that stand out.
  • Lily’s Theme from Deathly Hallows, Part Two is another one that stands out.  The dementors around the castle, Snape overlooking the courtyard…when it comes down to it, Lily’s sacrifice is so very important to the entire series.
  • Courtyard Apocalypse from Deathly Hallows, Part Two.  Oh.  My.  God.  This is such an amazing song, and it gets stuck in my head a lot.  If you only listen to a couple songs from the DH 2 soundtrack, this one (and Lily’s Theme) are the ones you need to listen to.
  • The End Of An Era by Oliver Boyd And The Remembralls.  This song ALWAYS makes me cry.  It sums up how I feel about the Harry Potter series, and a good song to round up the playlist.

Since this is playlist really features Oliver Boyd And The Remembralls and the soundtracks, I think I need one that focuses solely on other wrock bands.  I think I’ll be sharing that one when it’s finished.
