Radiohead ‘could have soundtracked Potter’

I know, this really has no substance, but it’s interesting.

From Digital Spy:

Daniel Radcliffe has said that the albums of Radiohead could have been a perfect soundtrack for the Harry Potter movies.

The actor told the Daily Record that it was “almost uncanny” how appropriate the records were to his character in the films.

Radcliffe said: “Harry’s darkness is a very specific type of darkness and it’s Radiohead’s OK Computer or Amnesiac, and it’s Manic Street Preachers’ The Holy Bible and Hope of the States’ The Lost Riots and it’s stuff like that.

“It’s kind of angry and epic. It’s angry in the sense that your life is beyond your control and you are in the middle of this maelstrom of politics and power. You have no control over that, and that’s where part of Harry’s anger comes from.”

He added that he would like Icelandic band Sigur Rós to work on the score for the final movie in the series, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.

“They would be great, wouldn’t they? It’s so right, it’s got the amount of grandeur and majesty. It’s epic and it’s magical and it’s playing the guitar with the violin bow and… ah God, it would be great,” Radcliffe said.

You may remember that Phil and Jonny played in the Wyrd Sisters band in the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie.
