Wrock out to wizard rock

Stacy Pisani performs in Swish and Flick (myspace.com.com/swishandflickwrock), one of many wizard rock bands that composes songs about the Harry Potter series. Check out five of her favorite tracks.

Swish and Flick, “SLY in Slytherin”
Sample lyric:
“We always cheat at Quidditch ’cause we like to play dirty / Knock you off your broom so we can win by 30.”

The Whomping Willows, “In Which Harry and Draco Secretly Want to Make Out”
Sample lyric:
“Harry Potter, don’t be shy / You got no luck with women, so perhaps you need a guy / There’s nothing wrong with it / No, there’s nothing wrong with it / You can move to Massachusetts.”

Draco and the Malfoys, “The Power of Love”
Sample lyric:
“We all love Lord Voldemort and we love to hate you.”

Ministry of Magic, “Bravest Man I Ever Knew”
Sample lyric:
“Long ago I had a teacher, a sallow-skinned Slytherin with long black hair?/?I hated him and he seemed to hate me too?/?And though I branded him a coward he was, in fact, the bravest man I ever knew.”

Harry and the Potters, “Dumbledore”
Sample lyric:
“I wish that we could go down to the Room of Requirement, and we could go bowling just like you used to / Back when Hogwarts Bowling Club was cool.”
