The first song on the soundtrack sounds rather ominous and "dwarven" Can't Post

If you got a chance to listen to the soundtrack preview, the first track "My Dear Frodo" starts off rather ominous and dark and dwarven. Indeed, one of the tunes in this opening bit of music is identical to a later tune in a track called "The Dwarf Lords." This leads me to believe that the film will open either with a flashback to Erebor, or something else centered on Thorin and the dwarves (Gandalf's meeting with Thorin, Thorin's travels to collect the dwarves, hardship in Ered Luin, who knows?). My Fear Frodo leads me to believe that it will be narrated by Bilbo. Track 2 is "Old friends" which seems likely to feature Bilbo and Frodo (and indeed, the Shire theme features heavily here), with Bilbo finishing up his tale of the dwarves, and Frodo running off to see Gandalf.

So:

Opening: Dwarf prologue
Scene 2: Bilbo finishes up the story with Frodo, who then runs off. Then Bilbo lapses into his memory of the adventure, and acknowledges that he has kept the full truth secret from Frodo (cue "I may not have told you all of it" from the trailer)

Am I reading too much into this tune? Does anyone else have other ideas as to what this music might accompany?

    "Old Friends" probably refers to Bilbo and Gandalf Shelob'sAppetite Send a private message to Shelob'sAppetite Nov 12 2012, 4:20am
