Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #131 – “Song of the Lonely Mountain,” from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
131. “Song of the Lonely Mountain,” from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Ah, yes, the song the dwarves sing at the end of the dinner party scene that goes on for as long as an actual dinner party. It’s a really well-written song, and has shades of all the other ‘Rings’ tunes. It’s definitely the weakest of the three Hobbit songs, which somehow increase in quality as you go along the trilogy. And from what I can remember, ‘Rings’ really only has the two great songs. Two Towers doesn’t really have its own song. I mean, granted, those two songs are better than all three of the Hobbit songs put-together, but the Hobbit movies do have three very worthwhile songs. Which is very respectable.
