One of the most memorable moments in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and complete Harry Potter The series includes a sad Hermione, a tired Harry, and a Nick Cave song. No one expected the two friends to let go of their concerns about their missing loved ones, the Horcruxes and the Dark Lords, for a while to dance to a touching but inspiring song from the King of emotional words.
Even Daniel Radcliffe admitted that the scene has been completely random lately Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Back to Hogwarts. Meanwhile, Emma Watson revealed that the dance was one of her favorite moments.
but how I did Nick’s song how to land in a Harry Potter Movie?
Nick’s song ‘O Children’ appears in ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1’ due to a breakup.
Director David Yates (to each insider), said, “Harry and Hermione’s relationship is all about true friendship. We wanted to make a wordless scene like that relationship. There’s something very tender and moving about seeing them trying to ease the pain by dancing.”
Besides dancing, the only way to ease the pain is to listen to Nick how,”An artist whose work has been steeped in debauchery, sin, and redemption, characteristics that do not necessarily correlate with the popular family holiday season,” the Los Angeles Times wrote.
But how the song appeared in the movie is a different story. It’s strange to think that the breakup affected music supervisor Matt Beva’s decision to add “O Children” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
“I was breaking up with my wife at the time,” Beva told the Los Angeles Times. Beva came across the 2004 hit “Ya Children” and “Hoarding It”. He knew it’d be a great song for something, but I didn’t know what. I forgot all about it and started listening to it because I was breaking up with my wife. I was really terrified that we were going to hurt our little kids, who were 1 and 3 at the time. So it was a love letter to my children.
“There was something really uplifting about the song ‘Children,’ with lyrics like ‘Cheer Up/Raise Your Voice’ and all that stuff. I was thinking about my kids. The lyrics say, ‘Forgive us for what we’ve done.’ Fun, but then the crying started. It was awful for me. At the same time, it was giving me hope. It’s different than writing a song for my kids, but it’s as close as I can get.”
Fortunately, Beva landed a song without even trying, but Yeats had other plans.

Yates wanted more options
When Beva approached Yates about the song’s use of the scene, the director said, “I think this song is a perfect fit, but is there anything better?” You can imagine what Beva thought. Hey Kids described what he was going through personally. In addition, it also perfectly sets the tone for the scene. Why look anywhere else?
However, he appeased Beva Yates and sent him seven different CDs of potential songs. At first, Yeats asked Beva to find an “old song for the soul”. Therefore, Biffa looked at such artists as Radiohead, Queen of the Stone Age, and Spiritualized.
“We talked a lot about some great old soul songs, songs from James Carr and Otis Reading,” Beva said. “That was initially what David was after. But they’re a lot of the Muggle world, if you want to. He’s very human, like teams like Oasis and Radiohead, in a sense. As much as I love Radiohead, I think it would have been very straightforward.”
After reading the script, Beva realized that it should be an encouraging song, but not “too romantic”.
The right decision was “Kids,” and Beva knew they had made it when he watched Radcliffe and Watson shoot the scene. “After they did their first couple photoshoot, I looked back and two makeup girls were crying,” Beva said. “Then I felt fine. We made it work.”
Getting permission to use the song was a no-brainer. In fact, it came back to Biffa that Cave was glad he and Yates decided to use it. “I love the fact that a whole generation of people, like kids, who didn’t know Nick Cave would find out through the movie,” Beva said.

Emma Watson said she loves the dance scene in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”
Biffa isn’t the only person who likes “Hey Kids”. During the recent period Harry Potter Reuniting, Watson revealed that she enjoyed filming the dance scene a lot. However, she wasn’t sure about that at first.
“The scene I thought was going to be really awkward, and I wasn’t sure at all, was our dancing. Now that’s one of my favorite scenes from the whole series,” Watson said, “Given the level of familiarity between me and each other at that point, I don’t think I could have done With a scene like this with another actor.”
“A lot was said in the scene and wasn’t publicized, and I love it. Also, in the same way that our characters had a moment of fun, I feel like we should have a moment of fun, which we needed too.”
No matter what fans think about the scene and her music, they can’t argue that it’s memorable. In addition, Cave gave new listeners. Either way, Radcliffe and Watson got to share a special moment in their own bubble. They didn’t expect the cave to occupy it either.
