'My Dear Frodo': one giant music tease of things to come?

'My Dear Frodo': one giant music tease of things to come? Can't Post

I've recently been listening to My Dear Frodo again. Does anyone feel like that song is basically a big tease of music we'll get to hear in the upcoming movies? At 3:02 you have the Arkenstone(?) theme, at 3:20 you have what appears to be Thranduil's theme and right after that you hear what i think will be the dragon sickness theme (3:32). And last but certainly not least, Smaug's theme at 4:14. It's like Howard Shore is basically telling us: "This is what's in store for you soon, but first you're going to have to join us on this little trip (AUJ)"

On a somewhat related note; i love how smoothly all the themes in this song transition into eachother (especially how it goes from Thorin's theme to Erebor's theme at 5:33)

Feel free to correct/add anything if i was wrong about something

Off of iTunes? That's interesting.

Doug Adams and the opening theme [In reply to] Can't Post

I recently asked Doug Adams if the opening theme of the track had any significance later on, and he replied, "All in due time ... all in due time. :)". Another user suggested that the theme represented "There and Back Again", predicting that the theme would also wrap up TABA.
