Springsteen wrote a song for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It did not make it into the movie.
Alessandra Maldonado reports at Salon:
Last October, Bruce Springsteen revealed he had written a song for the first installment of the Harry Potter film franchise, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”. Although his song didn’t make it into the film, fans are now remembering the ballad on the book series’s 20th anniversary.
Springsteen’s song “I’ll Stand By You Always” had a short-lived spot on SoundCloud when it was leaked in February, but was later removed after a few short hours. Though Salon cannot confirm this is indeed the original track, you can take a listen to what it might have sounded like here.

Just read – and had to print out – “What was Being Worshiped Yesterday…” An excellent reflection. Just excellent. A perfect example of the cultural captivity of the church. I’m glad i found “the way of improvement website.” Thanks.
Glad to have you on the board, John. Keep reading. I also assume you are a Springsteen fan (or a Harry Potter fan) since you commented on this post. 🙂
