    I bet, and I think I’ll be looking into some Beetles and Fleetwood for sure.

    I definitely like the Gently Weeps suggestion, and I bet Light My Fire just rocks!

    “Somewhere My Love” is a classic that is still requested.

    Marie, I find my students are often reading Harry Potter, and seeing the movies.

    You can purchase two themes in one folder from Harry Potter movies by John Williams from Lyon & Healy at http://www.harp.com. Here’s a link to the music:

    It’s for pedal only and I found them somewhat difficult. One is “Fluffy’s Harp,” the music played by the enchanted harp in the first movie. The other piece is “Hedwig’s Theme.”

    I am learning Hedwigs theme now. I really like the piece, the pedaling is moderatly difficult but it is was worth learning for the “That’s Harry Potter!” I got from some of the neighobor kids who came over when I was practicing it (I was impressed they recognized it at the time since it in no way sounded like it should have at that point).

    Thanks Catherine for the link to Harry Potter, that’s a really good idea to have up your sleeve

    I haven’t been playing harp gigs lately, but if I were putting together a gigbook, I’d try to add some of the songs listed below. They’re from current movies and of the past ten years or so, should be familiar to a wide range of listeners:
    ( Maybe we can expand this list, there are plenty of others I’ve missed.)
