could be... [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't have the CR so I've never heard more than the bits that Gandalf and Bilbo sing. Music geek time: that scale with the flatted 7th degree (the Mixolydian mode) is heard in songs from all over but seems to be particularly associated with Scotland. While Tolkien's dwarves seem to come from Norse traditions and have a language based on Hebrew, movie-dwarves certainly seem Scottish.

Slightly off-topic: I have great memories of my (then 5-yr.-old) son sitting before the woodstove as I sipped a mug of porter. He did a pretty good imitation of Gimli's "Rrroarring fires! Malt beeerrr! Rrripe meat off the bone!" (but an octave higher).
