What songs or music make you think of TH and LOTR? Can't Post

Just a month and a half to go until the premiere of The Hobbit! I'm stoked, but also nervous. While we all await the premiere, a thought had occurred to me: what music makes you think of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings? If you were to make an LAMV, what music would you set them to? Are there particular songs you associate with a character or scene? It can be any type of music, any singer or band, post away!

I'll post a few myself.
Ramble On by Led Zeppelin. Not only do the lyrics actually mention Gollum, Mordor and the Evil One, but the song itself makes me think of The Fellowship "rambling on", moving on with their journey and continuing with the best of their ability. A few other Led Zeppelin songs that make me think of The Lord of the Rings is "Immigrant Song", "Stairway to Heaven", "D'yer M'aker" and for the Hobbit, "Misty Mountain Hop" for obvious reasons.

The songs "The Supermen", "The Man Who Sold the World", "Changes", "Five Years", "Soul Love" and "Starman" by David Bowie also brings images to my mind. The Supermen can make me think of the Numenoreans, "The Man Who Sold the World" makes me think of Saruman, and "Five Years" makes me think of The War of the Ring, in which all of Middle-Earth was at stake.

For some reason, "Holidays in the Sun" by the Sex Pistols make me think of the Hobbit, and then other songs that I can think of at the top of my head that remind me of Lord of the Rings are "Pop Goes the World" by Men Without Hats and "The Sun Always Shines on TV by A-Ha". The last one I know probably doesn't make sense, considering there is no TV in Middle-Earth, but with all that is going on, the "sun still shines on TV". I tend to associate several New Wave songs with Frodo, for some reason. "Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House, "Send Me an Angel" and "Catch Me I'm Falling" by Real Life make me think of Frodo. Okay, I just made a really long post, time for others to speak up!

Give some of these songs a listen if you haven't heard them! They're great! I'll post links if anyone wants any.
