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.

-- sung by Celestina Warbeck on the Wizard's Wireless (HBP16)

A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love

Title of a Celestina Warbeck popular song

The young people in the Burrow during Christmas Eve 1996 aren't really listening to this song on the Wizard's Wireless, even though Mrs Weasley keeps turning up the volume (HBP16).

Some Muggles who had inadvertently picked up a Portkey on Clapham Common were transported to a Celestina Warbeck concert, where one was invited onstage during this number. In spite of a Memory Modifying Charm being applied, the Muggle wrote a hit song very like to the original. Celestina was said to be "not amused" (Pm).
