Celtic music in general. It makes me evocate lots of sceneries.

And you, Telchar? You should answer first and then we'd follow your example! :)

Which song makes me dream of middle earth? For some reason it is "I can see clearly now, the rain has gone...." It just reminds me of The Shire & Entwives...

U2-kite.. Why? Because I usually listen to that song when I read LoTR..
There are some more songs too, but don't remember them right now..

ramble on

How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air
T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor
Mm-I met a girl so fair,
But Gollum and the evil one
Crept up an' slipped away with her--led zeppelin makes me think of middle earth.

Rivendell, By Rush

My sig. includes some lines from the song, here are a couple more:

Elven songs and endless nights,
Sweet wine and soft relaxing lights,
Time will never touch you,
Here in this enchanted place...

Can't listen to much when I'm reading as it breaks my concentration!

I think of ME whenever I hear any Enya track as they are very ethereal and full of fantasy.

I also like U2, 'with or without you' for when Frodo leaves ME with the Elves.

I prefer songs without words though!

What music reminds me of ME - Wishbone Ash: Leaf and Stream, Warrior, Throw down the Sword and the King will Come - also Zeppelin's Battle of Evermore

Somewhere in a Tolkien story.
One song that makes me think of ME and Lorien in particular is "Fly like and Eagle" by The Steve Miller Band. It begins, "Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future.... I want to fly like an Eagle.. to the sea.. fly like an Eagle let my spirit carry me..."

Yup, that reminds me of the magical land of Lothlorien where time stands still yet moves at ninety miles an hour. A real conundrum!

Mine is,

The Trees by Rush, reminds me ents and big treelike things.

The Trees
by Rush

There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees,
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples,
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light.
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made.
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade.

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights.
"These oaks are just too greedy;
We will make them give us light."
Now there's no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law,
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.


The song is wonderful.

*sniff* touching..
'Over the Hills and Far Away', by Nightwish. I don't suppose you've heard of the band, or Sonata Arctica (which also makes me think of M-e). But any celtic/folk music, really.

Smaointe by Enya...

The music from the Rankin-Bass cartoons always comes to mind when I read LotR. :D

Travel on the road that's straight
Not the one with hills and bends

Enya's music in general makes me think of Middle-Earth. However, the music that makes me think of Middle-Earth every time I hear it is the cd "Freedom" by Michael W. Smith. It is purely instrumental music with a Celtic sound to it. I probably feel this way because I listened to this music through the entire reading of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Its absolutely wonderful!:D

I love Celtic music too....can't wait to get the LOTR soundtrack with songs from Enya on them.
Which album(s) are those Rush songs on?

Luna,

Rivendell is on Fly By Night and The Trees is on Hemispheres.

Incidentally, The Trees was written as a parable for the struggle for Canada's independence from the Brit's. (Maples being opressed by the mighty Oaks.)
