It’s that time of year again, folks, time to celebrate all things Tolkien and Middle-Earth! I’m planning on doing something a little different this year, though. Typically I post my favorite scenes from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, but I realized that I was pretty much posting the same scenes over and over. So this year I decided to branch out and post the closing credits songs from each film.
Here’s the catch, though–these aren’t the original versions. These are covers performed by acapella singer Peter Hollens, and they sound amazing. We’re starting off the week by posting his cover of An Unexpected Journey‘s song, “Song of the Lonely Mountain”.
Let’s get this party started, people!
