Tolkien Week: The Song of the Lonely Mountain

So for today’s Tolkien Week post, I decided to go with “The Song of the Lonely Mountain” as performed by the dwarves in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This song was easily one of my favorite parts of the movie, and I liked how the music throughout the rest of the movie contained this melody and wove it into the story. For, indeed, the dwarves’ song of their homeland is crucial to the story. It woke the desire for adventure in Bilbo as well as letting the audience know precisely what this quest meant for Thorin and his friends.

And it just sounds awesome, too.
