Fellowship theme vs. Dwarf theme Can't Post

The theme song of the Fellowship of the Ring vs. the theme song of the thirteen dwarves?

Oooohhh, you are cruel to make me choose..... [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the way that the Company's theme has such strength and the resounding power of those trumpets!

But, The Fellowship of the Ring was my first introduction to Middle-earth and as long as I live I'll never forget watching them walking through the stunning landscape, and then Gandalf leading them through on their closeups as the music booms out and reaches it's triumphant peak. So I think this one would have to be my winner.

I love the subtle changes in theme as it's repeated through the trilogy: after Gandalf falls it never has that triumphant feel to it again (until the very last one at the end in RotK), and then after Boromir's death you see Frodo standing by the boats and you have one last, now rather slow and mournful, tribute to that brave band of warriors who risked so much with the hope of little in return (at least in terms of personal gain).

If this sort of thing happens to the Company's music in The Hobbit as the films go on I shall be mighty pleased.

"THESE are Rhosgobel Rabbits! I'd like to see them try...."

I have spent many an hour pondering this... [In reply to] Can't Post

And still can't decide. I love Fellowship, and it makes me excited and adventurous. Also love the Dwarf theme, but it was played too often in the movie like "The Greatest Adventure" was in the Rankin/Bass Hobbit.

this is difficult!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Almost impossible to choose.they are both awesome themes.I think in a fight the dwarven theme wins just because it posses more power,where the fellowship theme is more tentative.what fantastic music though.

Definitely Dwarf theme [In reply to] Can't Post

It's hard to choose, since both have this epic atmosphere, but I just get goosebumps (especially during the troll fight) when the theme starts up. So epic.

Ah! A worthy battle! [In reply to] Can't Post

My cousin and I have a running joke (quite literally, no pun intended) that whenever one of us goes for a jog, we have to hum either one, since well, they are essentially running themes. (Has anyone actually timed how long characters spend running in the whole saga?).

My vote, a close one at that goes to the Dwarf theme... it's really quite cool.

Hands down

"But a small dark figure that none had observed sprang out of the shadows and gave a hoarse shout: 'Baruk Khazd! Khazd ai-mnu!' An axe swung and swept back. Two Orcs fell headless. The rest fled."

Such a hard pick! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's so hard to choose from the two! They're both really awesome... but I have to say Fellowship. The fellowship theme was the first thing that hooked me into Middle Earth. The majestic-ness of the theme in "The Ring Goes South"' is just amazing.
