Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

[Update 2018: This song is also known as Salamander Eyes from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.]

I haven’t read or watched anything from the Harry Potter franchise, but I love composer James Newton Howard. ‘Newt Says Goodbye to Tina‘ is a poignant melody that stood out the most (to me) from the Fantastic Beasts score.

When I begin an arrangement for YouTube, the music goes through an orderly process. More like a filter of 3 questions:

  1. Does this work?
  2. How can a further simplify this?
  3. How can I make it elegant?

I define elegance as: simplified to perfection. That’s what I strived for with Newt Says Goodbye to Tina, and I’m getting better at this every year.

If you like this song, be sure to check out my arrangement of When Ginny Kissed Harry.
