Cold Weather Happiness #2 – the Harry Potter soundtracks

cold weather happiness

Every Sunday during fall and winter (hopefully), I’m going to post what I’m calling “Cold Weather Happiness” – this could be anything from a song to a quote, a picture to a post about a person, lyrics to a description of a favorite place, anything that will remind me to be happy, to fight through the cold, dark place my mind goes to sometimes and remember that it’s not always like this. Read the full description in my first post.

My favorite songs from the Harry Potter soundtracks

I don’t know about you guys, but when ABC Family starts playing the Harry Potter movies pretty much every single day, I watch them pretty much every single day. I LOVE these movies, just like I love the books. I also tend to listen the soundtracks (which are AWESOME) more often during the fall. They are perfect fall weather/get work done to/pump you up songs, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorites.

Great Hall at HalloweenSource

Hedwig’s theme // this is the classic “Harry Potter song”. You’ll recognize it almost immediately, and it appears in every movie in one form or another.

Harry’s Wondrous World // a fantastical feeling song that really encapsulates what the first two books/movies felt like – magical. (This is also one of the songs you hear most often playing at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter)

Potter Waltz // a fun, fast-paced song. The song where Harry tries to dance at the Yule Ball and…fails a bit.

Buckbeak’s Flight // a sweeping, lovely piece. The song that plays as Harry rides Buckbeak around the Hogwarts grounds in the third movie.

Professor Umbridge // kind of enchanting and a lot of fun. Very bouncy. Just ignore the fact that it’s about that horrible woman.

Double Trouble // do I even really need to explain this one? Taken from the incantation in Macbeth and put to music, this one is really wonderful.

  1. You know, I’ve watched the movies more frequently and more recently than the books, and I really want to go back to the originals as there’s so much the movies missed out! R xx

  2. I absolutely LOVE listening to the Harry Potter soundtracks. I have a playlist on Spotify that I listen to all the time at work on repeat. I love the songs you chose. Especially Hedwig’s Theme, Harry’s Wondrous World and Double Trouble.

  3. HP definitely has some fantastic music. My favourites are ‘Lily’s Theme’, ‘Statues’ and ‘The Grey Lady’ (all from DH Part 2). Also ‘Possession’ from OOTP and ‘Dumbledore’s Farewell’ from HBP. I obviously favour the more sombre and dramatic ones lol!
