1. Hey diddle diddle, this earth’s in the centre.
OROFARNE: Sandwich a cookie unevenly around a nasally altered farm and see what springs up.
3. They’ll soothe a sore throat, if the liquid is changed.
4. After hesitation, the fairies’ midwife married him.
5. Christmassy, but dangerous here.
IN: What knights say, if you play the tape backwards.
7. A drummer loses nothing, but hisses for them.
8. A singer from the Seventies – hoping to sound like this?
TROLL: He’s much nicer when he joins forces with a Moomin.
10. Whether sweet or salt, it cools a hot mouth.
I: Simply the first person.
12. You tie one, K? (Take that away).
ELVEN-KINGS: Almost a dozen monarchs have lost their way.
14. Of French blood?

Well done. Have an oreo!

Best I have is RINGS for 7: Ringo - 0 + SSS. I would need some hints for the rest.

A hint? RHYME, more than riddling, should be applied to the first clue.

And 4 is cryptic, but quite easily so.

Is 1 literally just MIDDLE (-earth)?

For once I got the Shakespeare in #4 unprompted - the fairies' midwife is Queen Mab. But I can't do anything useful with Ummab or Ermab.

I feel like ERMABWED is not much of an improvement either.

I kinda wanna say FALAS for the Christmassy one, because it's the season with a lot of Fa-la-las, but I don't think it's particularly dangerous, nor can I recall a First Line with it.

S could be STING, who has apparently been performing since 1971 (yikes), and has the advantage of being a Tolkien word. I can't pin it to a poem/song though.

That's because it's not the right answer.

Just google 70s male singers/groups. I think it was the name of his group as well.

Not Falas either.

Look at first lines of songs/poems. All well-known; no more Leonard Nimoy or early versions.

'Here' in that clue means 'in this instance/situation' rather than a place.

All this has done so far is prove that a) I know an alarming number of artists from a decade I never lived in and b) there were a lot of Steves, Stevies, and Stevens singing back then.

Fireworks are used during Christmas, and are dangerous to Hobbits in some circumstances, as proven by Merry and Pippin...

You're kind of close, in that fire is the correct kind of danger.

Fireworks also feature in another remaining clue.

Too peaceful. I'm afraid arson and attemped murder are involved ....

Plus that song is one of the other answers. Each clue refers to a different song.

I: Simply the first person. (I sit beside the fire and think)
NOT: You tie one, K? (Take that away). (All that is gold does not glitter)
ELVEN-KINGS: Almost a dozen monarchs have lost their way. (Three Rings for the elven-kings under the sky)
SANG: Of French blood? (I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew)
