Steve Goodie Dumbledore's Army 
Oh god... an idea for another DAMN Harry Potter song struck my brain a couple weeks ago, and I couldn't make it go away. Sorry. This would have made SO much more sense five years ago.

In my defense, I can only say that I had yet to write a decent "Final Battle" song for the series... and now I have. Spoilers galore... be warned!!

And to up the annoyance factor, this is a parody of an Elvis Costello song which I'm sure nobody remembers. You can refresh your lack of memory here.

To sum up: in order to enjoy this song, you have to be a total Potter-geek AND a fan of late 70s punk/new-wave synth-driven pop-crap. Good luck with that.

Lyrics, drums, bass, guitar, ridiculous piano, farfisa organ, vocals, production: SG
Music: Elvis Costello

This song is now available on the following CDs:

This was the until-now-non-existant parody that went though my head anytime I saw those two words next to each other while reading the books. THANK YOU.

I'm of the fringe demographic that remembers the Elvis Costello song but gets none of the Harry Potter references. Sorry. The "ridiculous piano" is, however, spot on.

How did you get Elvis Costello to perform this for you? 8^)

I'm a nobody that remembers. :-)

That's okay, Steve, I'm older than dirt so I appreciate how wonderful this is. BTW, to improve your Elvis Costello impression, try smoking eight cigars, or screaming for 12 minutes, before recording your vocals.
