Tonight, has a press preview video online of a behind the scenes look at the rehearsal and recording of the score to HBP composed by Nicholas Hooper. At this link,  (scroll down to press kit 3:27) you can see the musicians at work, and hear some of the lovely "The Opening" piece of music. Enjoy! The soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released July 14.

Series movies always have better soundtracks. (Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter.)

I heard this earlier today. It’s absolutely brilliant and it gives me chills! I love how it starts off with Hedwig’s theme and then transforms into something slightly romantic and sad and then it gets into the drums…it’s AMAZING!! I love it! I really hope they put it on the dvd!

I wish they used more original music in the newest films, MORE hedwigs theme is needed, that is the original music to the series and it needs to be heard! not just this tiny piddly bit of it at the start! because that music is the essence of the movies!!!!!!! GAH

Guess That Book

"GET -- HIM -- OUT -- OF -- HERE!" Ron bellowed... Ron seized Scabbers by the tail and aimed a misjudged kick at Crookshanks that hit the trunk at the end of Harry's bed, knocking it over and causing Ron to hop up and down, howling in pain.
