Song Backgrounds & Themes
Harry and the Potters, one of the bands on the album, writes:
- "All bands were asked to write and record a song with the only criteria that “ALL OF THE SONGS SHOULD BE FUNNY”. We recorded our song, Vernon Dursely [sic], at our parent’s house in September 2008. Paul played the ukulele and Joe played the slide whistle."
Many of the songs are meta in nature: "The Year Harry Went Emo" describes Harry's OotP characterization and also includes a critique of Michael Gambon's acting (in the lyric "He misses Sirius Black / And Michael Gambon's acting's crap"), and "Creepy Mustache" is about film!Remus's unusual facial hair. Others humourously appeal to fanon tropes and themes, such as Gred and Forge's "Brotherly Love", a song about Weasleycest.
