    DL: That's almost exactly the kind of thing I imagine for the minstrel's song of "Frodo of the Nine Fingers" at the Field of Cormallen.

    Here's another from Faun that reminds me of Rohan:



    The entire video doesn't seem to be available -- assuming there was one.

    Not sure about the headdresses! :)

    I guess I should add this one, set to a Medieval lyric about a man who meets an Elf-maid and becomes enchanted.

    Hmm. . .now how would that happen?

    Now it was a time of festival, as Melkor knew well. Though all tides and seasons were at the will of the Valar,
    and in Valinor there was no winter of death, nonetheless they dwelt then in the Kingdom of Arda, and that was but a small realm in the halls of Eä, whose life is Time, which flows ever from the first note to the last chord of Eru. And even as it was then the delight of the Valar (as is told in the Ainulindalë) to clothe themselves as in a vesture in the forms of the Children of Ilúvatar, so also did they eat and drink, and gather the fruits of Yavanna from the Earth, which under Eru they had made.



    And some darker music for the descendants of the Éothéod.

    I video linked on the page for that one was this, even more off-topic.



    Yet the lyrics translated (from Mongolian to Chinese to English) in one of the comments seem Middle-Earthish.
    Birds, flowers and all other creatures, we are all the same.We share time, air and sunshine with them.Time goes by and we pass wisdom from one generation to the next.Our lives are short, but once they pass away they become part of enternity.Spring, summer, fall and winter, they constitutes a cycle.From birth to death, that is also a cycle.Time goes by, we see cycle after cycle in history.The universe lasts forever, but we will never be young again.The sun today is the same as the sun in the past,And the songs we sing today are the same as those our ancesters sang.We have limited lifetime, but we can pass down unlimited glory from ancesters to children.Some beliefs will never be changed in this fast changing world.​

    This would have been a good song in one of the pubs. Maybe mine :D

    It would have certainly improved the movie immensely

    Wow... I have to say I have about half of Kinofnerdanel's selections in this thread already on a playlist on youtube! Th elast time I ducked in here this thread only got started. I think I'll share a few "Middle-Earthy" tunes of mine...

    Party in Erebor after the victory over Smaug, the lead singer of Corvus Corax looks eerily similar to Thorin Oakenshield the the Hobbit movies:


    The funeral march of Theodred in Rohan:


    And some Tolkien poetry in a beautiful rendition:

    This music makes wonder about the Maiar of Oromë.
