Movie Music Trivia Game #3 Can't Post

This weekend and the beginning of next week are busy for me, so I'm going to grab the opportunity to post the next music trivia quiz while I can.

Music Trivia Challenge #1 dealt with a theme.
Music Trivia Challenge #2, with the sounds of the Ring.

For our Music Trivia Challenge #3, I'm going in a slightly different direction.

Housekeeping:
First: if anyone reading is curious but thinks they don't enough about music or the soundtrack to play, let me assure you you're wrong. These games aren't so much about what someone knows going in as they are about looking at a particular aspect of the movie and having a discussion about it. Providing answers in a quiz format is all for fun, but not the only way to participate. I don't care how many resources you use to answer, I don't care if you only guess, or just provide general comments. My main goal is to promote conversation among members of this forum. My next goal is to provide members with some light hearted fun. My next goal is to have people come away with more knowledge or insight about something than when they went in.
Second: I enjoy doing these quite a bit, but they do take some time to prepare. I can find the time to do it but I can't always find the time during the week to play hostess. Please, please forgive me if I seem absent during the week. I will be back for answers and comments. But in the meantime, I would be thrilled if you all made yourself at home and conversed with each other while I'm gone. It's not nearly as much fun, IMO, if people just list their answers and thoughts but no interaction ever takes place. Mingle... talk... :D

The Game:
There are different parts to this challenge and different levels. Feel free to complete different part on different days and in different posts.

This weeks challenge has clips from 8 scenes. The clips can be found by following > THIS LINK <.

Listen to all 8 clips in the first section.
Challenge One:
What do all these clips have in common?
Challenge Two:
What scenes are these clips from?

The Clues:
Now, this is pretty much impossible to complete with using the clues. I'm going to let you decide how many and what type of clues you wish to utilize. The first few clues everyone should read. They're not clues so much as parameters. The rest I'll put in hidden text (highlight to read).
  • The first section contains clips from a CD, either an OST (Original Sound Track) or CR (Complete Recording). Listening to all 8 will help you find the commonality. The scenes in the Extra Challenge Section have issues that make them problematic. Read more below.
  • The second section contains clips from the movie or using sound from the movie. Listening to these may be the only way you can answer complete Challenge Two. Since most will be obvious with movie dialog and sound effects, you should give yourself the opportunity to solve without them, but don't consider it 'cheating' to listen.
  • It is possible that multiple clips may come from the same scene.
  • Challenge clips - These clips are somewhat problematic for the following reasons (hidden text / highlight to read):
  • Scene 5: This music - that's heard on the CD - is not in the movie. To identify this clip for Challenge Two, you'll need to listen to the 'movie' clip which mixes the movie dialog and sound effects with the CR music.
  • Scene 6: This music does not, IMO, provide a strong example of the commonality for Challenge One. Don't let this clip, on its own, throw you off your ideas and opinions for the group as a whole.
  • Scene 7: This music - that's heard on the CD - is not in the movie. To identify this clip for Challenge Two, you'll need to listen to the 'movie' clip which mixes the movie dialog and sound effects with the CR music.
  • Scene 8: This music - that's heard on the CD - is not in the movie. To identify this clip for Challenge Two, you'll need to listen to the 'movie' clip which mixes the movie dialog and sound effects with the CR music.

  • Which movie are these clips from: (highlight to read)
  • General hint: all the clips are from either FOTR or TTT. There are surely good examples of the commonality in ROTK, but they aren't included in this game. I will elaborate why when I provide the answers.
  • Of the 8 clips: > 6 < are from > TTT < and > 2 < are from > FOTR <
    Specifically:

  • Scene 1 is from TTT
  • Scene 2 is from FOTR
  • Scene 3 is from TTT
  • Scene 4 is from TTT
  • Scene 5 is from TTT
  • Scene 6 is from TTT
  • Scene 7 is from TTT
  • Scene 8 is from FOTR

  • Which principal characters are involved with these clips (highlight to read)
  • Scene 1 Frodo, Sam, Gollum
  • Scene 2 the Fellowship
  • Scene 3 Frodo, Sam, Gollum
  • Scene 4 the Three Hunters
  • Scene 5 the 4 Hobbits and Strider
  • Scene 6 Frodo, Sam, Gollum
  • Scene 7 Merry and Pippin
  • Scene 8 Frodo and Arwen

  • Clue about the commonality of the music clips: (highlight to read) Pay more attention to how the music sounds than where or how the music is used.
