To pay homage to that love triangle set up by PJ:
Arwen/Aragorn/Eowyn - Run to You ~ Bryan Adams

And for the recent craze in the Captions thread:
Gandalf - I'm too sexy for my shirt etc.

1420! Weird theme song.

Gandalf: Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus.

Well . . . slightly modified:
My name is 'lrin.
I am a dreamy Maia.
Then I was sent
To Middle-earth 'coz of Sauron
And all of his orcs,
With Nazgl, what dorks.
But he doesn't know who I am.
And he doesn't give a damn about me.

'coz I'm just a Third Age Maia, baby.
I'm just a Third Age Maia, baby.
Sent by the Valar with four others like me.

This is really only funny if you've ever seen the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode:

LEGOLAS:
Look it's a dwarf, he's uncouth and he's coarse
A terrible boor
He makes this run 'cross the wide plains of Ro-han
Hard to endure
The hobbits must be saved
But you'd think he'd find time to shave
I'll take it to my grave . . .
I'll never tell

GIMLI:
Great, it's an elf who's obsessed with himself
What did you expect
I can detect all his sly disrespect
Because he's stiff-necked
So he can run on snow
His only weapon's that dumb bow
There's just one thing that - no
I'll never tell

GIMLI / LEGOLAS:
'Cause there's nothing to tell

LEGOLAS:
He's short
GIMLI:
He's pretty
LEGOLAS:
He thinks his jokes are witty
GIMLI:
He hums some elven ditty
As we run along

LEGOLAS:
He's gross, and hairy
GIMLI:
He acts like he's a fairy
LEGOLAS:
He's stubborn and contrary
Stupid and headstrong

GIMLI / LEGOLAS:
This chase
Is really wearing
GIMLI:
No one taught him about sharing
LEGOLAS:
He thinks wearing brown is daring
GIMLI:
He can be so overbearing
GIMLI / LEGOLAS:
But it's all very well
'Cause I swear I'll never tell

LEGOLAS:
We've lost the hobbits
We're at the end of our wits
We're here at Fangorn Forest
With no hope in sight

GIMLI:
If we go in there
I'll tell you we should beware
The trees are -
LEGOLAS:
Look how the dwarf's scared!
GIMLI:
I'm not frightened, all right?

(Begin Musical Interlude)

(OLD MAN leaps out of Fangorn.)

OLD MAN:
Look at me! I'm Gandalf Greybeard!

(End Musical Interlude)

GIMLI / LEGOLAS:
You know
GIMLI:
He's quite the charmer
LEGOLAS:
My dwarf in armor
GIMLI:
When he sees the caves of Aglarond
I know he can't help but respond
With firm yet supple - stiff-necked elves

LEGOLAS:
He's brave
GIMLI:
He's braver
LEGOLAS:
I've never seen him waver
GIMLI:
He wants to be the savior
Of all Middle Earth

LEGOLAS:
He plays the stoic
Beneath he's quite heroic
Although he'd never show it
I ignored his worth

GIMLI / LEGOLAS:
I lied
I said it's easy
I tried
But there's feelings I can't quell

GIMLI:
Could he learn to live beneath the ground?
LEGOLAS:
Would my people run me out of town?
GIMLI:
Will he think that I'm disgusting
When my armor gets to rusting?
LEGOLAS:
When I go to the Grey Havens
Will he grieve like he's been shaven?

GIMLI:
Am I crazy?
LEGOLAS:
Am I selfish?
GIMLI:
Am I dating someone elvish?
GIMLI / LEGOLAS:
You might think that I'm a cold fish
But this just won't end well
So that's why I'll never tell
I swear that I'll never tell

GIMLI:
My lips are sealed

LEGOLAS:
Silence is gold

GIMLI:
Nothing to see
Move it along

GIMLI / LEGOLAS:
We'll never tell

really old songs

Ringwraiths-The Logical Song (supertramp)

Legolas-Sharp Dressed Man (ZZ Top)

and I know one for Lotho, very well known too, but I can't remember the name who did it. "Signs" I think.

Quote:
Sign, sign, evrywhere a sign.
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind.
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign.
anyone remember it now.

The Hobbits: Sweethome (Shire) Alabama!
Aragorn: I'm Addicted to Stress I can't remember this artist, either. Get Down Tonight by KC and the Sunshine band.
Denethor to Faramir Why Don't you do Right? by Rasputina. Again.
Dwarvian Mines/Get togethers Anything by Chichanni. I can't understand whats going on, but I like it! (Chicanni = Peruvian folk music group :\)
Ghan-Buri-Ghan and the PUKELMEN!!: Come on (Feel the Noise) "We'll get Wild! Wild, wild!"... "Wild! Wild, wild!"

Then there are things that my mind perveses such as When time stands Still (At the Iron Hill) by Blind Guardian which just strikes me as a great song for marching elves. Everywhere. And singing.

I might could think of more, but, frankly, I'd have to crack out more CDs/mp3s.

Elrond to Aragorn regarding Arwen:

"But as for Arwen the Fair, Lady of Imladris and of Lorien, Evenstar of her people, she is of lineage greater than yours, and she has lived in the world already so long that to her you are but as a yearling shoot beside a young birch of many summers. She is too far above you. But there will be no choice before Arwen, my beloved, unless you, Aragorn, Arathorn's son, come between us and bring one of us, you or me, to a bitter parting beyond the end of the world."

And so at least the chorus of Just the Girl by Click Five would seem to fit Arwen/Aragorn:

Cause she's bittersweet
She knocks me off of my feet
And I can't help myself
I don't want anyone else
She's a mystery
She's too much for me
But I keep coming back for more
She's just the girl I'm looking for

I know I post this a lot but it really does remind me of them.

White Flag by Dido for when Aragorn comes up the Anduin in the corsair boats and anytime him and Arwen (you big, role stealing, horse stealing, Glorfindel hitting, cheating SCUMBAG!!!!!!!!) together!!!!

Leaf Dido coincidence? I think not!

Just read your post, and it was off to iTunes with me. Found the Dido song, and I see your point Aragorn and Arwen wise. But, when I heard the 30s preview, for some reason, the movie Love Actually popped into my head. After going through my CD's, I found the song I was thinking of. And, by such a coincidence, it was also by Dido. So, in conclusion...


Here with me by Dido, for all those times Arwen thinks about Aragorn. The lyrics just seem to compliment the plot of it so well, you'd think it was meant for it.


Lyrics (for those who dont' have the song)

I didn't hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
And I don't want to move a thing
It might change my memory


Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can't hide


And I won't go
I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


And I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me


I don't want to call my friends
For they might wake me from this dream
And I can't leave this bed
Risk forgetting all that's been


Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can't hide


And I won't go
I won't sleep
I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here


I won't go
And I won't sleep
And I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


And I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me


Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can't hide


And I won't go
I won't sleep
And I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here


And I won't go
And I won't sleep
And I can't breathe
Until you're resting here with me


I won't leave
I can't hide
I cannot be
Until you're resting here with me

That's awsome Perky!!! There's another song that pops into my head for Arwen and Aragorn but I can't remember for the life, I mean death, of me what the song is called or what the Artist's name is.

I hate to seem like a post spammer, but these songs from the Love Actually CD seem to apply to a lot of people

Jump(for my love) by The pointer Systers, for Nienor

This one is kinda weird, but God only knows by The Beach Boys, for Feanor loving his simarils. Although it may seem weird (because of the whole elf <3 Object problem), it does seem to show Feanor's love for the simarils. Especially the whole 'God (Eru) only knows' part....kinda...

Take me as I am by Wyclef Jean, for Eowyn. Not the song so much, but just the title.

Wowzers. Once again, sorry for seeming like a post hog who refuses to eat the pineapple pizza in front of him.

PS. I love Pineapple pizza

Alatar & Pallando, the blue wizards, would no doubt be singing Blue (Da Be De) by Eiffel 65.

I can just imagine them singing "I'm blue da ba dee da ba die..." every step of their journey.

Who else sees Tom Bombadil as a hippie?

I think any good 70s rock song would fit him. No wonder he's my favorite character. I can't think of a good one, though.

Gandalf after fighting the Balrog: waiting for the world to fall by Jars of Clay



I'm afraid it's been too long to try to find the reasons why
I let my world close in around a smaller patch of fading sky
But now I've grown beyond the walls to where I've never been
And it's still winter in my wonderland

Chorus
I'm waiting for the world to fall
I'm waiting for the scene to change
I'm waiting when the colors come
I'm waiting to let my world come undone

I close my eyes and try to see the world unbroken underneath
The farther off and already it just might make the life I lead
A little more than make-believe when all my skies are painted blue
And the clouds don't ever change the shape of who I am to You

Chorus
I'm waiting for the world to fall
I'm waiting for the scene to change
I'm waiting when the colors come
I'm waiting to let my world come undone

When I catch the light of falling stars my view is changing me
My view is changing me

As the elven minstrels sang and played in the house of elrond, I imagine the song " Play that funky music white boy".

I think a good song for Shelob would be Poison by Alice Cooper
And going off the Disney fest earlier I think a wjhole new world from the Aladdin movie would be appropriate for Bilbo and Frodo going to the Grey Havens at the end of ROTK

Somebody had mentioned Queen earlier, and there are a slew of their songs that fit different Tolkien characters (at least title-wise):

The WitchKing -- Death on Two Legs ('You're just an old Barrow Boy...)

Arwen -- Who Wants to Live Forever

Frodo -- Seaside Rendezvous

Gimli -- (Just Waiting) For the Hammer to Fall

Legolas -- My Fairy King or The Fairy Fellers Master-Stroke *swoons*

Galadriel -- White Queen

Ingwe -- In the Lap of the Gods

Gandalf -- The Prophet's Song

Sam -- Keep Yourself Alive

Sauron -- One Vision

Lotho Sackville-Baggins -- Tie Your Mother Down

Morgoth -- I Want it All

Elwing -- Spread Your Wings

Gollum -- I'm Going Slightly Mad

Denethor -- Put Out the Fire

Et cetera and so on...

Hrin - Another One Bites the Dust by Queen. I can imagine him singing that as he slays trolls in the Nirnaeth.

The whole song‽ (40-ish minutes)


I would go for (seemingly obviously):
The Wizard by Black Sabbath for Gandalf in his travelling days. I'm certain that there is a quote somwhere that talks about Gandlaf travelling and spreadng happiness, and this song has that theme.

Some newer thoughts

I think that song should go to Faramir or Aragorn, due to their rejecting of the past mistakes of Gondor.

Denethor should have the darker "A Passion Play" by them.

And on that note:
Songs from the wood= Tom Bombadil (or on second thoughts, Sam as well)


Also,

Gwaihir: Any bird or flying song
Elves who cross the Helcaraxe: Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin

Well, whatever. That was a long time ago, I can't remember why I thought that would be a good song.

Aragorn's song when he meet Arwen the first time: I Wanna Hold Your Hand by the Beatles

And before he leaves Rivendeland is saying good bye to Arwen: All My Lovin' by the Beatles

This isn't for a character, but the 'Downs as a whole (Not based on actual experiences, but still):


Hotel Barrow-Downs - By The Eag... oh...

I had a burning question, no book had the key
The Silmarillion, it would not answer me
So I went onto Google, saw the question discussed
Realised that I should read some more
Click the link I must
There it opened before me
I saw those who here did dwell
And I was thinking to myself,
"I could just look or I could post as well"
So I wrote up my first post and clicked 'Submit Reply'
There were some people posting
Said "to post you first have to 'die' ".

Welcome to the Barrow Do-owns Forum
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Barrow Do-owns Forum
Any time of year, you can find it here.

I'd read a few books of Tolkien, I knew a bit about about Dale
But some here have heavy, heavy books, that they call the 'Tales'
How do they post on the forum, 2+ per day
Some come here for knowledge, some for Werewolf stay.

So I called up Chris Tolkien,
’Please add a new book to the mix’
He said, ’we haven’t had new material since 1996’
And still those Barrows are calling you up from your beds,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to read on threads...

Welcome to the Barrow Do-owns Forum
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely place
They're posting on threads at the Barrow Do-owns Forum
What a nice surprise, and they're Tolkien-wise.

I talked to a long-timer,
When I'd just posted twice
And she said ’we are all just prisoners here, of our own device’
And the Mod Gorthad,
They gather to kill spambots
They ban them all with their Mod powers,
But they just find lots and lots

Last thing I remember, I was
Trying to sign out
I had to find the passage back
The 'Downs to live without
’Relax,’ said the wight man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can register any time you like,
But you can never leave!

(inspired by elbenprincess' thread about Elrond's parents)

Elrond - Another Brick in the Wall Part 1 by Pink Floyd:

Daddy sailed to search for Aman
Left me just a memory
Mommy morphed into a sea-bird
Daddy, what'd you leave for me?
Mom, Dad, what'd you leave behind for me?
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
