Happy Birthday Sue!

Huff, Huff, Hufflepuff! Huff, Huff, Hufflepuff! Huff, Huff, Hufflepuff!

Everyone chant, no matter what house you're in, because we're all in Hufflepuff yellow today! As the person who writes most of this 'ere main page, she's someone you must know if you're a Leaky reader. And if you've ever met her, or seen a live PotterCast or a PotterCast vlog you know that Sue spends a great deal of her time bringing cheers to others - so today we give it back!

We've started with this video from the PotterCast Vlogs:



And continue with this musical medley written and send in by longtime Leaky reader Bandersnatch! Press play below to hear it, and the lyrics are posted at the bottom of this post. :)



Sue, not just because it's your birthday: We all love you. We hope you get just a little bit of the joy you give back today.

Read below for Bandersnatch's amazing lyrics!

"Sue Medley" (in honor of Sue Upton's birthday, 12 March, 2009), arranged and performed by Bandersnatch
1. "Upton Girl," to the tune of "Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel
2. "Hufflepuff Sue, to the tune of "Runaround Sue" by Ernie Maresca and Dion Francis DiMucci, as performed by Dion and the Del-Satins
3. "Squeein' Upton," to the tune of "Rockin' Robin" by Bobby Day

Oh...
v Upton girl,
Living in her Harry Potter world.
She kept on sending news to T.L.C.,
So they just went and made her staff at Leaky.
Let's give a squee

For our Upton girl.
Now she's known by fans around the world.
So raise your glass and drink some butterbeer.
Put on your black and yellow and give a cheer,
'Cause Sue is here!

And when she's talking
At PotterCast time,
And when she's posting
And says, "Jason's fine!",
We say "Go Hufflepuff!"
Just because
We're all in love

With that Upton girl.
And now she rocks our Harry Potter world.
We know if anyone can win, she can,
'Cause rooting for her are a thousand fans --
That's what I am.

Oh...

So there's her story -- each word is true --
And we tip our hat to that girl named Sue.
The noble house of Diggory
Now stands as one to give a squee...

Huff, huff, oh a-Hufflepuff etc. Sue.

Oh yeah, we all knew it from the very start.
This girl's a winner and she's full of heart.
Now listen people what I'm tellin' you:
A-give a squee for the Hufflepuff Sue.

Well, she works for Leaky, she's a PotterCast host.
When Jason makes news, she's the first one to post.
From San Diego to Kalamazoo,
They give a squee for the Hufflepuff Sue.

And whoa,
Give a squee for that girl,
That Hufflepuff Sue.
Give a squee for Sue.

She likes a-Wizard Rock, yeah,
And giving Dobby lots of socks.
The people can't get enough.
Sue's the Queen of Hufflepuff!

She rocks at the Leaky all the day long,
Hufflin' and pufflin' and singing her song.
All the little SQUEEters at T.L.C.
Love to hear Sue Upton going squee squee squee!

Squeein' Upton,
Squeein' Upton,
Go Squeein' Upton, cause we're all gonna squee tonight.

Every moderator, all Transcription Elves,
Frak, John, and Melissa down with their bad selves,
Every PotterCaster, everyone you know,
All the little SQUEEters shoutin' "Go Sue Go!"

Squeein' Upton,
Squeein' Upton,
Go Squeein' Upton, cause we're all gonna squee tonight.

Well the S is for "Sue's," and the Q's for "Quite."
The U's for "Unnervingly" (you know that's right).
The E's at the end, well get a load of this:
They stand for "Excitable Enthusiasts"!

She rocks at the Leaky all the day long,
Hufflin' and pufflin' and singing her song.
All the little SQUEEters at T.L.C.
Love to hear Sue Upton going squee squee squee!

Squeein' Upton
Squeein' Upton
Go Squeein' Upton, cause we're all gonna squee tonight.
