Soundtrack Saturday – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Soundtrack Saturdays is a little thing where I share a song with you that I think would fit on the soundtrack for the book I’m currently reading. If you’d like to join in, please either leave your soundtrack pick or the link to your soundtrack post in the comments.

Current Read: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling

One Sentence Summary: Year four at Hogwarts not only brings more homework for Harry, but also the Triwizard Tournament.

Soundtrack Song: “Miseria Cantare – The Beginning” by AFI, from the album Sing The Sorrow.

Why I chose this song: I’ve loved this song ever since this album first came out, but it had been a while since I had heard it. I came across it again a week or so ago, just before I started Goblet of Fire. It immediately made me think of the scene at the end of the book where the Death Eaters rejoin Voldemort. However, after reread that section, they don’t really show that much excitement at being reunited with their leader. They’re much more confident before they know he’s returned, and this song seems to fit more with the mayhem they cause after the Qudditch World Cup. The chanting, the mob-mentality feel of it, that eerie scream at 0:51. Plus, these lyrics look like they could be straight out of the Death Eaters handbook:

Radiate, recognize one silent call
As we all form one dark flame

You
Are Now
One
Of Us

What song would you add to the soundtrack for this book or the one you’re currently reading?
