Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was released on 15 November 2005. The film's score was not composed by John Williams as were the previous three films, but by Patrick Doyle. This was done because Williams reported having certain schedule problems, as he scored music for 2005's Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Memoirs of a Geisha, Munich, and Steven Spielberg's remake of War of the Worlds.[citation needed]

The music was performed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by James Shearman, and included three main new themes: one to represent the Triwizard Tournament, one to represent Lord Voldemort, and one to represent Harry Potter's crush on Cho Chang. It also features an ominous reprisal of the familiar "Hedwig's Theme". A prominent minor theme is presented in "The Death of Cedric".[1] The soundtrack entered the Billboard 200 at position eighty for the Week Ending December 3,[2] and also charted at four on the Top Soundtracks Chart.[3]

Songs 22-24 are the songs playing during the Yule Ball scene when The Weird Sisters band came out and played. The Yule Ball theme comes from Symphony No. 3 by Samuel Wesley
