Ack! I used to cry along to "Sacrifice" even in a non-Buffy context. I daren't listen to it and think of "The Forest Again" or I may become even worse to be around than I am right now anyway

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

It was ironic for me actually because as i started to read the forest chapter where harry sacrifices himself ...'who want's to live forever' breaking benjamin's version of the queen original came onto my mp3 player, made it all the more emotional to read. And then one by filter when i was reading the princes tale.

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

For some reason the Hall & Oates song "She's Gone" kept going through my head when some characters died, because I've always thought it sounded more like a funeral song than a love song. I also thought of it when Ron left Harry and Hermione. I also imagine the Atlanta Rhythm Secsion song "So Into You" when Harry thought of Ginny.

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

Well when harry was walking to his "death" "In the End" popped up in my mind from linkin Park.
here are the lyrics.

One thing / I donít know why
It doesnít even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
Itís so unreal
Didnít look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on / but didnít even know
Wasted it all just to
Watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
One thing / I donít know why
It doesnít even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
Iím surprised it got so (far)
Things arenít the way they were before
You wouldnít even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end
You kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesnít even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesnít even matter
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
Thereís only one thing you should know
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
Thereís only one thing you should know
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesnít even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesnít even matter

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

I'm more a fan of the Johnny Cash version of Hurt, so that one was stuck in my head. I also couldn't get Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run out of my head for the entire book.
And then there's I'm not Down by The Clash
If it's true a rich man leads a sad life
That's what they say, from day to day
Then what do the poor do with their lives?
On judgment day, with nothin' to say?

I've been beat up, I've been thrown Out
But I'm not down, Oh I'm not down
I've been shown up, but I've grown up
And I'm not down, Oh I'm not down

On my own I faced a gang of jeering
In strange streets
When my nerves were pumping out
I Fought my fear in, I didn't run
I was not done

I've been beat up, I've been thrown Out
But I'm not down, No I'm not down
I've been shown up, but I've grown up
And I'm not down, No I'm not down

So I have lived, that kind of day
When none of your sorrows will go away
Go down and down and hit the floor
Down and down and down some more
Depression
But I know, there'll be some way
When I can swing everything back my way
Like skyscrapers, rising up
Floor by floor, I'm not giving up

So you rock around and think that
You're the toughest
In the world, the whole wide world
But you're streets away from where
It gets the roughest
You ain't been there

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

I've got another one - "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M. would fit for "The Forest Again", some of it for "King's Cross", and even "The Prince's Tale". Some of the lyrics:

"Oh, life is bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to"

"That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight, I'm
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it"

"Every whisper
Of every waking hour I'm
Choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you"

"But that was just a dream
That was just a dream"

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

I got home from B&N, read for 3 hours, slept for 8, read on the back porch, went for Dementor's Kiss ice cream with some friends , read, ate, read read read.

So... crickets and things that go bump in the backyard. It was heaven

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

My Harry-Ginny song is called "Just So You Know" (i don't know the artist though..Jesse McCartney?).

It goes along with Harry's denial of liking Ginny in HBP ('i shouldnt love you, but i want too, i just cant turn away..') and continues on to when he has to leave in DH, and the birthday kiss flashes through my mind.. it's a little bit heartbreaking. </3 ('thought you should know i tried my best to let go of you, but i dont want too')
He knows he can't take her with him because he loves her so much.. and he might never see her again.

LYRICS:
I shoudn't love you but i want too
I just can't turn away
I shouldn't see you
But I can't move
I can't look away

I shouln't love you
but i want too
i just can't turn away
i shouldn't see you
but i can't move
i can't look away

and i don't know, how to be fine when im not
cause i don't know, how to make a feeling stop

just so you know, this feelings taking control of me
and i can't help it, i wont sit around
i cant let him win now
thought you should know i tried my best to let go of you
but i dont want too
i just gotta say it all before i go
..just so you know

it's getting hard to be around you
there's so much i can't say
do you want me to have the feelings, and look the other way?
and i don't know, how to be fine when i'm not
cause i dont know, how to make a feeling stop

just so you know, this feelings taking control of me
and i can't help it, i wont sit around
i cant let him win now
thought you should know i tried my best to let go of you
but i dont want too
i just gotta say it all before i go
..just so you know

just so you know...
this emptiness is killing me,
and im wondering why i waited so long,
looking back I realise it was always there
just never spoken

i'm waiting here...
been waiting here... (this is almost like Ginny's line..)

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

Mostly I had completely random songs playing through my head, but had a few good ones.
-Your Guardian Angel by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus when Harry and Ginny were kissing. That's their theme song, for me.

-Justify, also by RJA, when they were raiding the ministry.

But, really "Your Guardian Angel" seems like exactly what Ginny should sing to Harry.

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

Augh! I was just waiting for a thread like this! Hurrah!

Overall, I would say Wheel In The Sky by Journey really suits the plot.
Pins and Needles by Billy Talent suits how Snape felt for Lily... makes me sad listening to it really...
Surrender, which is also by Billy Talent is another song that makes me think of Snape and Lily.
Another Lily/Snape song is When You Love Someone by Bryan Adams
I Grieve by Peter Gabriel is just a good song for any of the deaths, particularily Fred, Lupin and Tonks.

This was perhaps not the best plan D:
ooh, yes, that Buffy music is so well suited. I think I'd have cried ever harder (if that were possible) if I listened to "Sacrifice" while reading that chapter.

My ultimate Deathly Hallows song would be "Doomsday" from the Doctor Who soundtrack. It's so haunting, and beautiful, and tragic all at once. Lovely piece.

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

To Be Loved by Papa Roach while the Battle of Hogwarts and the fighting chapters after that.


Listen up, turn it up and rock it out
party on, I wanna hear you scream and shout
this is real, as real as it gets
I came to get down to get some ****ing respect
taking it back to hardcore level
you better be ready, put your pedal to the metal
taking it back to hardcore level
you better be ready, put your pedal to the metal.

Go!

Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved
Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved
I want domination
I want your submission
I see you’re not resisting
To this temptation
I’ve got one confession
A love deprivation
I’ve got a jet black heart
It’s all ****ed up and it’s falling apart

Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved
Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved

I’ve got another confession
I fell to temptation
And there is no question
There was some connection
I’ve got to follow my heart
No matter how far
I’ve gotta roll the dice
Never look back and never think twice

Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved
Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved

Take your past and burn it up and let it go
Carry on; I’m stronger than you’ll ever know
That’s the deal; you get no respect
You’re gonna get jumped
You better watch your ****ing neck

Take your past and burn it up and let it go
Carry on; I’m stronger than you’ll ever know
That’s the deal; you get no respect
You’re gonna get jumped
You better watch your ****ing neck

Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved
Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved

Whoa I'll never give in
Whoa I'll never give up
Whoa I'll never give in
And I just wanna be, wanna be loved

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

Hah I began to wish New Line and Peter Jackson did the movies because when Harry is walking down towards Voldemort in the forest and James and Lilly etc are apearing I could hear that song from Lord of the Rings in my head when Sam's going " I made a promise Mr Frodo a promise"

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

During The Prince's Tale, I kept hearing A Window to the Past from the PoA soundtrack in my head. Made it all the more heartbreaking.

Also, in the Epilogue, I heard that grand statement of the Family Portrait theme that the endings to PS and CoS both had. At the end of it all, I was praising John Williams for his wonderful contribution to the Potterverse.

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

Somewhere only we know

Ever since hearing this song I've thought is is just PERFECT for Harry Potter. If they ever incorporate any real world songs, and not compositions, to the movies, this of course, is just the perfect song for it.

Obviously, I wasn't the only one to put it together in my mind as a perfect song. I've just now seen a youtube video of this song along with pictures from the movies. I've wanted to hear the song again, just now, and It is nice to see someone out there thinks like I do.

You can easily find this if you'd like to see it and hear it . Just put in "Somewhere only we know".


Although it started off reminding me of Harry and Ginny, especially the line about the fallen tree. Parts of Hogwarts were destroyed. So maybe it would be a nice song to play after Harry goes back to the destroyed Hogwarts. Although that didn't happen in the book, I can easily see him roaming the grounds afterwards and thinking like this. Thinking " Voldemort is dead. But look at everything destroyed. Is my life going to be simple now? Is this the place I used to love? Look at everything I have lost."

I now can see it just being a perfect song for the whole series.

It also could be perfect song for when Snape is trying to apologize to Lily,
trying to win her back.

Please look up the song and listen to it , and post if you agree, these are the lyrics.



I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
sat by the river and it made me complete.

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting older and I need something to rely on.

So tell me when your going to let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.

I came across a fallen tree. I felt the branches of it looking at me.
Is this the place we used to love? Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing, where have you gone? I'm getting older and I need something to rely on. So tell me when your going to let me in. I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it..someplace only we know
This cant be the end of everything
so why don't we go
someplace only we know

somewhere only we know

Oh simple thing where have you gone
I'm getting older and I need something to rely on

So tell me when your going to let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it..somewhere only we know

This cant be the end of everything
so why don't we go
someplace only we know



Gosh, I love this song now!
Please respond to me if you've ever heard it and you agree!

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

What I heard in my head while reading "The Forest Again" was Levi Weaver's Del Cielo. Its written from the point of view of one who has passed on speaking to a loved one who is still alive. For those who are interested you can hear it here http://www.myspace.com/leviweaver and the lyrics:
i'll be waiting to meet you
i'll be the first one to greet you
and i'll sing a jubilant song 'cause you're home
i've been waiting so long

right now it seems like forever
but try now, try to remember
the times, now, that we had together
...for me
'cause i can't bear to see you cry

and i'm sorry that i can't be there to see you through
but i hope you hear me say 'i love you'
and i'll see you again ...someday

love is so much more than emotion
my love lives with undying devotion
so don't give into the notion i'm gone
i've only gone home

i miss you when we're apart but
i'm with you - you're not forgotten
i've been here watching you all along
cheering you on til that final day

and i'm sorry that you can't see me like i see you
but i hope you hear me say 'i love you'
and i'll see you again...

i'm home - home where i've always wanted to be
i hope you're happy for me
i'm free - free from the burdens that troubled me there
it's so wonderful here
and i've seen so many things i could never describe in a day
and oh by the way...


...i eagerly wait
til i see you again...

...someday.

Re: Your Personal DH Soundtrack

In response to others:
I'm youtubing these songs. I've not heard some of them, but it is fun to listen to songs that others think are perfect for the book.

Linkin Parks "In the end"
is a good one. I've heard this song before, so I don't need to youtube this one to hear it, but I do like this song. Harry must have thought that in the end everything he had done wouldn't matter because he was about to die. He could have no idea at that moment that he'd ever return to Earth. It is also a good song for Snape as it is revealed to him all his work trying to save Harry is in vain (or so it seemed to him at the time) and Harry has to die in the end anyway. Perfect song for his thoughts at the time. I've worked so hard, and in the end it doesn't really matter...

The Clash-I'm not down
Well this song is an upbeat one, a good victory song.

Hall and Oates- She's Gone
I think is a bit too upbeat sounding for a song to play at death. But I good song for Ron when he runs away, and is trying to get back to Harry and Hermione. He is kind of hitting himself isn't he, like "What have I done. She's gone. I've got to get back to her."

I was never into Buffy, but that music "Sacrifice" is very sad indeed.
A good song to listen to when reading about Harry's sacrifice. Pretty music and sad.

Buffy and Chosen: I'm not sure if I am listening to the right music on this, but I am listening to a video that is supposed to have that music in it, and if I am listening to the right music, it is very dramatic, a good battle scene type music.

Johnny Cash version of Hurt
And Nine inch Nails Version of Hurt

Wow, this is great for Snape.
And for Harry. Nine Inch Nails does it better than Johny Cash.
He sounds really hurting as he sings it.

Who want's to live forever -breaking benjamin or queen
I listened to both version. Breaking Benjamin sounds smoother and more modern. I liked it. It is a good song. Harry was was willing to die. He was thinking he didn't have a chance with Ginny and everything was already decided for him. He only had one sweet moment with Ginny. So sad.
Weird how it was playing on your MP3 as you were reading. I'd have cried then I think.

Rhythm Secsion song "So Into You
Good song for Ginny and Harry
Or even for other couples.

Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run
Yes, Harry probably feels like he is always running. Maybe other people also feel this way.

Just so you know- Jessie McCartney
Why didn't Snape ever tell Lily he loved her? He never said the words. I think this could be a good song. He didn't want to let James win, but he never told her he loved her. I wish he had said it all before he went.

Your guardian angel -Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Oh yes, a good Ginny Harry kiss song!

Justify by Redjump suit Apparatus
I'll have to look the lyrics on this one. I am having a bit of trouble understanding everything they are saying on this one, especially the screaming parts.

I'm off to listen to some more of the songs suggested. I will post the rest of my thoughts in a bit.
