Misty Mountains

A long, long time ago the junior-high-aged Southern Lad and his friends were at a Star Trek convention where in one corner were a couple of girls and a guitar. We'd already discovered the wonders of J.R.R. Tolkien by that time and we sat spellbound at their feet as they sang of elves and dwarves and the cold distant Misty Mountains.

From The Hobbit Part I; music by Howard Shore. Sadly, it's only a few verses, repeated over and over and over again. If you like, there are even longer edits...

From the animated Rankin-Bass version of The Hobbit.

A favorite fan cover. This one always takes me back to that convention so long ago...

Wow, I hadn't thought of that old cartoon Hobbit in forever. That last one is really haunting.

Possibly the most eclectic blog I read.
