Misty Mountains [In reply to] Can't Post

With a few variations of the instrumental version of this particular theme already established in AUJ,
might there be another version where the lyrics might be paired with the instruments in upcoming
parts 2 and 3? I don't know if that would work though.

I am looking forward to additional renditions. I've sometimes noticed that themes often pair with
other layers of music so that the theme occupies the underbelly of the music, so to speak, yet
is unmistakable amidst the accompanying adornment. It sort of conveys that enduring sense of
the spirit of the Dwarves of Erebor's theme amidst the vicissitudes and obstacles. For instance,
I wonder how the theme will play nearer the mountain or during the Battle of Five Armies when
the goblins try wrest from the Dwarves their newly reclaimed kingdom. In one of the battle's pivotal
phases, we could be hearing this Misty Mountain theme in one of its grander instrumental renditions
(maybe with some Dwarven choir to supplement it Cool), as Thorin and the company ferociously fight
to hold onto what they've painfully reacquired. In a way it's a summation of the everything happing from
AUJ onwards with its varying Misty Mountain themes in the moments where the Dwarves rally to
the challenge. Notice, though, how this theme seems to accompany the yearn rather than the final triumph.
And it would be the same if accompanying the battle, as the yearn is yet real in the threat of goblin invasion
and the triumph far from secured. Will the company ever secure their homeland? We will only find out in TaBa and
the themes keep us guessing. It could be interesting to hear new themes too though.
