So I was looking for Tolkien videos on YouTube to share with all of you since it’s Tolkien Week…and then I found this. It’s an audio clip of Tolkien singing “Chip the Glasses and Crack the Plates” from The Hobbit. Now you’ll notice the tune is nothing like the one in the recently-released movie, but I like it all the better for that. It’s sung by the man who actually wrote the song, so if anyone knows how it should sound, it’s him.
Be warned, though–you might die a little from happiness after listening to it.
