Celestina Warbeck



"A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love" was a jazzy song performed by Celestina Warbeck. Arthur and Molly Weasley danced to it when they were eighteen, and, with their family, they listened to it again on Christmas 1996 on the Wizarding Wireless Network. Molly tried to get everybody to listen to the Christmas broadcast, but nobody except Molly enjoyed it, as Fred and George played Exploding Snap, Fleur Delacour thanked goodness that it was over when it ended and Arthur apologised to Harry about the broadcast, promising it would be over soon.

When Ronald Weasley tried to guess the password to Potterwatch in 1997, A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love was heard a few times.

In 2003, a Muggle dog-walker was accidentally transported via Portkey to one of Warbeck's concerts, where the singer invited him on-stage to perform a duet of this song. His memory was modified by a Ministry of Magic official, but the charm did not fully take and the man went on to pen a popular Muggle song which bore an uncanny resemblance to this tune. Warbeck was not amused.[1]


The song's lyrics include:

Oh, come and stir my cauldron
And if you do it right
I'll boil you up some hot, strong love
To keep you warm tonight
