Today's Tune: "Sorcerers" By Angel Witch

I once dressed up as Severus Snape for Halloween.
Hey, I had the long hair and the black robe.
Never you mind why I had the robe!

Happy Birthday to J. K. Rowling! The author of the hugely successful 'Harry Potter' fantasy book series turns 45 years old today. Born Joanne Rowling, she started life in the town of Yate, near Bristol, England. When she married, her legal name became Joanne Murray.

There are seven books in the 'Harry Potter' series which, along with the subsequent movie adaptations, has made the charitable minded Rowling a very rich woman.

These books are centered around the make-believe world of wizards, also known as sorcerers. Whilst thinking about the books and their counterpart films, I came up with our 'Today's Tune'. I was especially mulling over the first novel 'Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone', which was retitled 'Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone' for us in the States.

Staying with creatures of magical abilities, I've picked the song "Sorcerers" (1980) by British cult metal band Angel Witch.
