Many people do not realize that one of the best and most famous rock bands ever, Led Zeppelin, wrote many songs directly referring to or cleverly hinting about LOTR material. This would make sense, due to the fact that the band itself was British and into the mystical and fantasy. Just thought I would bring this up, if you want to check it out go to www.led-zeppelin.com and click on lyrics. They have all of their albums and you can click on whichever one you want, getting the lyrics to all songs on it. Some of the main songs are: The Battle of Evermore (The Untitled Album): This talks about the distant land, the constant battle between the ringwraiths, sauron, and good. word "ringwraiths" is specifically mentioned. Ramblin' On (Led Zeppelin II or Houses of the Holy): This song talks about Frodo's journey from Rivendell to Mount Doom, being led by Gollum. Words "Gollum" and "Mordor" are specifically mentioned. Carouselambra (Houses of the Holy): It is not as direct in this one, but "the eye from the deep searching for the weak" is most likely the eye of sauron, and it talks about an old age war. It also talks about the "key which could not be dropped", I take that to mean the ring of course (Isildur). I'm sure if I looked a little more into this subject I could probably find a paper by Robert Plant (lead singer) on his fondness of Tolkien's works. There are also probably more references to LOTR on some songs on the site that I missed. Anyways, I just thought this whole thing was really cool that possibly the greatest band of all time wrote about one of the best novels of all time. Feel free to comment!!!
