Audio Previews of the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Soundtrack Now Online

We have a bit of a treat tonight, as fans can now preview the soundtrack for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince through ring tones. If you go to this link to Virgin Mobile, then select a phone, you can type in "Harry Potter" in the search box, and will get a selection of 14 second previews from the score to HBP composed by Nicholas Hooper. Without revealing too many spoilers, the music ranges in sweeping soaring sounds, to lovely romance (with even a bit of a harp) to the whimsical for the Slug Club, and in a standout, the Weasley Wheezes theme consists of a fabulous nod to the swing and jazz era of late, similar to what we heard with Lupin's class in Prisoner of Azkaban. Enjoy!
Update: The previews are also available here via AT & T Media Mall and now thanks to Chris, here via Youtube.
Thanks ever so much Michael!

Very interesting! I think that Nicholas Hooper let loose this time and did a better job… at least I wish!! (not that I didn’t like his previous score, it is just that it was a little quiet)

I already can see that “Dumbledore’s Farewell” is going to make me cry…I hope this one is just as good as the HBP Video Game Soundtrack, which I love!

Oh. My. Gosh. I love “The Friends” and “Dumbledore’s Farewell”. Oh dear, I’m on the verge of tears. The second page doesn’t work for me though :( And I’m DYING to hear “When Ginny Kissed Harry”

Oh gosh.

Hey Guys, At&t has them for preview as well on their Media Mall, so try that for everyone using a Mac. Also, make sure to check with your own Cellular Carrier to see if the songs are available.
