Welcome to another installment of the Gaffer’s Elite. Last week we outlined the top cinematic battles from Middle-earth. This time, we’ll be looking at the songs.
I have had to limit myself by listing only appropriately termed songs. As much as they are beautiful, no melodies featured as background music in the films have been named – perhaps for another post …
These are songs specifically characterised by being vocal compositions sung by a character or an ensemble during the films.
Now if only they’d recorded the Elves singing “O Tra la la lally…”
