I heard “Harry and Hermione” and “When Ginny Kissed Harry”…they were absolutely gorgeous! I agree with KiwiMcl, they really didn’t sound like what we’ve come to associate with a HP soundtrack, they truly are so much better. I can’t wait to hear the whole soundtrack. I wish they would have released it a little bit earlier…haven’t we waited long enough?!?

I heard “Opening”. Was real good. Sucks that we only get one song per hour. I don’t understand the point of doing that at all. I guess to get site hits. But still. It’s completely stupid.

Drink of Despair sounded…odd. Good, but kind of odd. I liked it, though.

yay! What wonderful timing I have to stay up tonight to write a screenplay and always do so with quiet music on, usually movie scores, was just listening to Thomas Newman. I could go listen to this station. Yay!! :) What a coincidence, hmm maybe there’s felix felicis in this coffee. Can’t wait till 20 mins time (groan, which is 2 in the morning over here)

WOW!! Did anyone else hear ‘In Noctem’?? That. Was. Incredible! I had to post this, I can’t believe that came from a Harry Potter film! That was some of the most beautiful singing I’ve heard in classical music. I’m so excited I can’t wait for this soundtrack if it’ll match anything like that. Again can’t believe that was from Harry Potter. I love you Hooper. Jeez roll on 3 in the morning, this is the greatest work motivator I’ve ever had

Listening to “When Ginny Kissed Harry” right now…so incredibly beautiful. This will fit perfectly with the scene.
