"In Dreams" and "Into the West." Though I've really liked most of the songs in the new Hobbit movies, with the exception of the Goblin King's, which seemed to syncopated to be very Tolkien-like.

The Great Goblin's song was to the tune of 'This Old Man Came Rolling Home'. Instant fail.

My favorite LotR soundtrack song may be the Rohirrim theme. I don't know what it's called. It's just very haunting.

My favorite song that Tolkien wrote and included in the books is the Lay of Gil-Galad.

YES. I have the Lay of Gil-galad memorized.

The Lay of Nimrodel never appealed to me greatly in the books, but I love this version.

Also the Lay of Boromir is amazing, and I like this rendition a lot.

It seems like a lot of people who try to put the songs to music make them too classical-sounding. They're ballads, people! Nothing against classical music, but the point of ballads is words, not music. Get too musically creative and you murder the thing by accident.

That (The Lay of Nimrodel) is really pretty. I like the dulcimer sound in the backround

Bridge of Khazad Dum always grabs me but Breaking of the Fellowship will always remain my fav soundtrack. It was already back then and it still is today

That's my other other favorite. "The Grey Havens" is good, too.

I think I've fallen in love with that version of the Lament for Boromir that you posted, Glen.

I merged two threads about Lotr songs since one of them only ever recieved four posts and was basically the same as this one.

Okay, so I have to bring this awesome musician to everyone's attention:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...1E6A1108FA0B40

He makes Heavy Mithril versions of Howard Shore's themes. They're amazing. And on the subject of Heavy Mithril, Blind Guardians's "Nightfall in Middle Earth" album is actually based on The Silmarillion and not LotR, but it is excellent.
