Songs in the Hobbit Can't Post

I'm not sure about everyone else but I actually loved the songs they portrayed in the Hobbit from the chip the glasses, Misty mountain cold, to the Goblin Kings singing of goblin town. I think each was played perfectly in the film.

Chip the Glasses to me shows the fun side of the dwarfs and their love of good food and ale. Their good hearted nature and that they are a fun bunch. I esp loved when Thorin knocked on the door and the look on the dwarfs faces all got suddenly serious showing that Thorin is probably a stick in the mud who probably has not much of a sense of humor.

Misty Mountains Cold shows the very somber attitude of the quest ahead of them and gives Thorin some emotion and also shows the power he has over the dwarfs to a certain extent and the respect they have for him. It puts the weight of Thorins quest on our shoulders as we listen to the monk like tone of the song

Goblin Town Song to me anyways was almost as if the Great Goblin was mocking the dwarfs, it showed how smug and pompous he was. How untouchable he felt he was. I found it totally appropriate that he was singing in that scene. Like I said almost mocking dwarfs he felt were surely doomed. Feeling that he was adding insult to injury by singing about torturing them. Even before he knew it was Thorin Oakenshield.

The songs that were portrayed in the film were IMO played perfectly making me wonder how they deal with songs further into the films. I realize the elves are not the tra la lally elves from the book, but it would be nice to see a few more songs from the book placed in the appropriate places in the films. What does everyone else think?
