I have a feeling that this would happen to me... [In reply to] Can't Post

that's why I'm saving it for opening night so I can sit back and enjoy!

I'll have to listen to it a few more times [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't decided if I like it yet or not. I suspect it will grow on me, but it didn't give me the immediate chills that "Song of the Lonely Mountain" or "Into the West" did.

Thanks for that [In reply to] Can't Post

I was starting to wonder what strange language the thing was written in, but it makes sense with your corrections. There are still a couple other mistakes in there, but it's close enough.

Ed [In reply to] Can't Post

I wish you liked it Daniel. :( As I've said I know nothing of the guy so I was able to not have that road block. I like it right now but of course that is subject to change. lol

And now on iTunes in the UK... [In reply to] Can't Post

Ģ0.99 on iTunes as of this morning. Though I had to wander into the pre-order of the entire soundtrack to find it.

It has grown on me but I still have a hard time with the lyrics [In reply to] Can't Post

Ed Sheeran was totally unknown to me so I wasn't prejudiced against him and was fine with him as a singer, but the first couple of times I listened to it I felt more like 'meh, this is boring, and too much of a pop song, and not at all Middle-earth-like, and it will come as a nasty shock after two and a half hours of Howard Shore's music'. That was yesterday. Then today I read PJ's facebook entry about the song's creation, namely that it is basically the musical reflection of Ed's emotions after watching the rough cut of the film, which made it more comprehensible to me, and then I listened to it half a dozen more times, and now I actually rather like it, the tune that is.

The lyrics, however, are very odd, and I totally agree with you, Daniel, that they are bloody difficult to understand; many words are slurred and unintelligible, and some of the rest doesn't make any sense to me (not even with Otaku Sempai's corrections). It's not that I normally need to have poetry explained to me (except perhaps some of Viggo Mortensen's) but in this case I really have a hard time with the lyrics. 'Oh misty eye of the mountain below' ??? Hunh?? The Lonely Mountain isn't a volcano, is it? So why the 'eye'? And so on. Do I have to be on drugs to understand it? Perhaps I need to get on to Ed Sheeran's website and suggest he publish the definitve version of the lyrics of 'I see fire'. And five weeks from now I'll have seen DoS and hopefully then get the meaning of it all ...

Fully agree [In reply to] Can't Post

The song alone is OK (Even though not my fav music) but is not OK for a movie like The Hobbit, it doesnīt fit at all.

Itīs a romantic comedy music.

As bad as many fanvideos mixing the Hobbit movie with romantic comedies songs

"Dear friend good bye, no tears in my eyes. So sad it ends, as it began"
