"Ode To Harry" by Switchblade Kittens, from their album The Weird Sisters
Just in time for Valentine's Day! The first-ever Wizard Rock song comes to life in this music video, following Ginny's transformation from a heartsick admirer of the famous Harry Potter to a self-confident young witch with a skip in her step! Be sure to let the awesome folks from Switchblade Kittens know how great they are for starting this whole Wizard Rock madness! The band shots were taken on November 13, 2006 in Los Angeles, and the "Hogwarts University" scenes were shot on January 28, 2007 in Spokane, Washington.

"Mollywobbles" by Roonil Wazlib
Here's a preview of the musical talents of Molly from Roonil Wazlib. This song, "Mollywobbles," was the third Wizard Rock song she wrote, and it is from Mrs. Weasley's perspective. It's probably one of the sweetest examples of Wizard Rock there is. Shot in Okanogan, Washington on July 1, 2006.
