While Harry Potter fans everywhere tend to be split on how they like WB's film adaptation compared to J.K. Rowling's original book series, most Potterheads do agree that the music of the films is quite beautiful, especially John Williams' contributions which are woven throughout the first three films. A testament to this fact, the most famous tune from the movies, "Hedwig's Theme", has become a standard, now played by concert bands all around the world.
Today we'd like to feature a song and video produced by POGO, who took various sounds from the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone movie itself and produced an entirely new creation for your listening pleasure.
Fans of the MuggleNet Alohomora! podcast may also recognize this as our theme song, and we're incredibly grateful for his letting us use it!
Stumble across a cool fan video online? Maybe you made one yourself? If you think it should be featured on MuggleNet, send an email to me at Noah@staff.mugglenet.com.
