Music Monday

Monday, December 9, 2013

Seeing as this is a sorta kinda Tolkien blog,
and seeing as The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters Friday,
This music monday is going to the genius that is Howard Shore.
This guy really nails it every time,
even if Peter Jackson doesn't {and I really, really, really hope he does!}
From the very first opening sequence of the Fellowship, all the way through to the Grey Havens,
Each piece of the Lord of the Rings (and Hobbit) soundtrack
are perfectly welded to character, plot and mood.

There are so many great ones
The King of the Golden Hall,
The Fellowship's theme {most grandly heard as the intro to Moria}
But I have to say,
This one is probably my favorite.

Have a Great Week, everyone! 
Hope you get to enjoy the second installment of the Hobbit with your friends and loved ones :)
