I thought we'd have some fun Can't Post

Okay, so I'm sick with a sinus infection right now, which has probably made me delirious enough to make this thread.
All right then...Out of everyone in The Hobbit, the novel and the film adaptation, if the music we have in real life existed in Middle-Earth, what do you think the characters of The Hobbit would listen to? It can be any character in The Hobbit novel and movie, and can be any genre, artist, etc. Get creative!

For Saruman, Mike Oldfield, ambient and new age.

Galadriel and Elrond, Enya, Clannad, new age.

Fili and Kili, the Ramones.

Azog, death metal

Bilbo, the Beatles and David Bowie. Seriously, I can picture him singing Bowie songs while he's cleaning the house. Blush

Okay, everyone else's turn.

My thoughts exactly !! [In reply to] Can't Post

But i mentioned DIO mostly for the the fantasy themes he used to sing about... i'm pretty sure Gandalf would be cool with that !!

And speaking of DIO, just to let all of you know, i always imagine and think about the Elves everytime i hear and read the lyrics to the song "CHILDREN OF THE SEA".

music, music, music [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin, anything with a strong drumbeat

Fili and Kili I could easily see as head-bangers.

Bilbo, Big Band Music or Classical.

I agree with Galadriel and Elrond listening to Enya or anything new age.

I also agree with Azog and Death Metal.

Dang...I was hoping I could think of a character singing or dancing to the BeeGees or ABBA, but I can't. Tongue

Ha! Me too [In reply to] Can't Post

A couple more (not my ideas):

Riddles in the Dark: "Staying Alive" BeeGees

The Warg Chase/Bunny Sled: "Runnin' Down a Dream" Tom Petty

I had in mind the Benny Hill theme for the Bunny Sled chase, but it's been overdone :(
