Will Bilbo Sing? Can't Post

so in the new trailer we have "The Edge Of Night" the song sung by Pippin in Return Of The King, brilliant usage by the way. Billy Boyd said that when he was coming up with the tune for it he imagined it as a song that Pippin's grandfather would sing to him as a child, he imagined it as a song that had been passed down through generations from the time when the Hobbits were looking for a new home before they found The Shire.

I love that interpretation of it but there's a new theory about it now, someone here suggested that the song was written by Bilbo after the Battle Of Five Armies an Pippin learned it from him. I love that theory too, the films even support this by Gandalf telling Bilbo "Home is now behind you, the world is ahead" as songwriters or poets know our brains are constantly filing potential lyrics away for future use (well at least I do lol) anyway the point I'm trying to make here is that I really hope Bilbo sings in this movie he's been a great Bilbo so far but if he were to sing it would make it more perfect even Ian Holm sang in FOTR. we know Martin Freeman can sing and for those that don't here is a link it features clips from Sherlock by the way.


He won't sing Pippin's song in the movie he'd most likely sing a version of "The Road Goes Ever On" or he could sing something like Arwen's song from the Extended ROTK after the battle or something like that. sorry for this seemingly random rant I'm starting to get excited for this movie now!
