Something wicked this way comes!

Both the tune and lyrics intrigued me the first time I saw the Hogwarts choir sing this on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Back in the muggle school I attended the English Lit prof wasn't into paranormal stuff so she understandably didn't discuss this part of Macbeth. Thanks to convenient research nowadays. Finding out that this was the witches' brew in the cave was a lazy flick of the wand. I wish the croaking of the frogs wasn't omitted, but I'm glad I no longer have to babble each time I want to chant along.

I love this. I've never heard it before but it is so appropriate for this time of the year. :) It reminds me of myself for some reason...Go figure. Have a wonderful Monday and a great week ahead :)

I loved the song in PoA. I do like that this had the lyrics, though. I knew some of the words, but not all of them. Interesting that the Hogwarts school song centers around potions. Snape must be pleased!

My DD#1 loves Harry Potter. I need to add this to our Halloween playlist. Her b-day is this Sunday and she wanted a Harry Potter party. (Try saying that 3 times fast! LOL)
