Rock legend Bruce Springsteen almost went to Hogwarts.
Speaking to Simon Mayo on Radio 2, Springsteen revealed he wrote a song specifically for the ‘Harry Potter’ film series, entitled ‘I’ll Stand By You’ – but the producers chose never to use it.
“It was pretty good… It was a song that I wrote for my eldest son. It was a big ballad that was very uncharacteristic of something I’d sing myself, but it was something that I thought would have fit lovely.
"At some point, I’d like to get it into a children’s movie of some sort because it was a pretty lovely song.”
Springsteen has written a number of original songs for the movies, including ‘Philadelphia’ and ‘The Wrestler.’
The only original rock music recorded for the ‘Harry Potter’ series was in the fourth film ‘The Goblet of Fire,’ in which a fictitious supergroup featuring members of Radiohead and Pulp performed several specifically-composed songs.
