Liner Notes: 

I feel like this is only the first half of a song about the Mirror of Erised wanting to be Harry Potter's girlfriend. I think part two should be in a different style but I'm not sure what?

This was written with the help of botnik.org, a predictive text bot that has different "voices" based on feeding in different kinds of text. This one was fed on Bruno Mars lyrics.

So I will rework this at some point, but probably not before the end of 50/90.

Lyrics: 

Harry Potter, you yeah you.

I wish I didn't know that you were only a friend
I don't know better;
But when we're every day together,
New world way better is opening up

Chorus:
Keep on saying I'm rocking your mind
Oh yeah but what if
Before you know it
Before you there's me
And I can be your boo
You know what I can do
I can rock your body too

You get one take
I'll tell you what you got to know
Make no sense
That's out there too

But Harry Potter I like you.

CHORUS

I wanna love you like your mom
I know it sounds broken
Mirror girl that's me
Look a little closer Harry



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Great use of predictive text and a disturbing but enchanting (if I may use that word!) take on the premise of the song!

Great. Now every time I read that part I'm going to think it's some weird unhealthy co-dependent relationship. I'm not familiar with predictive text, but I think I have the general idea. What a creative tool to use! Ack! I also just realized that he was 10 when he was obsessed with that mirror! Okay, I like the lyrics, but I'm going to have to retcon some things in my head to cope.

That chorus is different for sure - a bit creepy. Of course, the bot doesn't know how we will react to the words, which is cool - these surprising ideas and combinations jump out. Maybe part two is from Harry's point of view? Or from the mirror's point of view after being rejected by Harry?
