Music, Alan Rickman and Reading

I’ve been listening to the truly fantastic soundtrack to the Order of the Phoenix by Nicholas Hooper. This is Umbridge’s theme and it is absolutely perfect! It really captures all her fake, pink evil in that mockingly cheerful tune. Ugh! I hate her more then ever before, if that is even possible. I just want to rip up the pages she’s on with my own teeth!

I’ve also been in a very Alan Rickmanish mood (yes, I am a Snape-fan) and one of my favourite ever movies is Truly, Madly, Deeply staring Alan Rickman and Juliet Stevenson. I truly recommend it. It’s about a woman who has lost her husband… and then he comes back to her as a ghost. Mainly though it is about grief.

So I’ve been listening to The Sun Ain’t Going to Shine Anymore a lot recently too – including the original by the Walker Brothers and the cover by Keane. I really love these scene in the movie though.


  1. Truly, Madly, Deeply -- a film I have watched and loved over and over and over! I think I will go to bed now singing this song. :)

  2. I've been a fan of Alan Rickman ever since I knew who he was in the Robin Hood movie. I've also seen him in the HP movies of course and in Love Actually. He's a brilliant actor!

    Wow, I like the clip from Truly, Madly, Deeply. Rickman looks so different! I'd love to look out for this movie. Thanks for posting up the video!

  3. ick...Rickman

    I love Juliet Stevensen though. glad your enjoying your Potter re-read, is it still good?

  4. Oh Harry Potter is as marvellous as ever Jon-Bear but the 5th book is stressing me out somewhat more then it used to before.

    Josette - Truly Madly Deeply is such a beautiful film I hope you'll enjoy it when you see it.

    Marieke - that song always gets stuck in my head.
