Pianist Plays Movie Themes For HARRY POTTER, LORD OF THE RINGS and PIRATES in Ragtime


Movie themes are necessary for films. They help set the tone for the film and they are one of the most recognizable parts of any movie. What if you changed the style of the theme though? What if they were performed like a metal song or what if they were done in Ragtime? You get a very different sense. Jonny May recently took three themes from famous movies and performed them in ragtime.

  • “Hedwig’s Theme” from Harry Potter
  • “He’s a Pirate” from Pirates of the Caribbean
  • “The Shire Theme” from Lord of the Rings

The results are ridiculously fun, but they clearly sound like very different songs with the change of style. If you follow May on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, you can even vote on future projects.
