Though not a song in the standalone-sense I often find myself humming this opening theme throughout the day. I love all things magical. Harry Potter is my happy place. It’s a world where good triumphs over evil with tragic losses along the way. Where young kids fight against tyranny using their brains, their friendship and love as the greatest weapons. I listen to this piece daily to lift my mood.
