I am usually not a fan of songs in my stories... [In reply to] Can't Post

and was very pleasantly surprised with Billy Boyd's song in the film. Viggo's inserted song (in the EE) never came across correctly to me.

But the medium of a radio play, perhaps because there are no distracting visuals, was just perfect for the interludes of song. Ian Holm's "Man in the Moon" cleverly reminded us of the homey hobbits--although it was not "sung", and was not jarring at all. I was very glad to hear this inserted here.

Like Idril, and like I said in another post, I feel that Robert Stephen's "Aragorn" was a perfect mix of the aristocratic king- in- exile yet raised as a ranger.

Hanging out with the Lonely Isle elves.
