The LOTR/Led Zeppelin Connection

The drums will shake the castle wall,
The ring wraiths ride in black, ride on.
Sing as you raise your bow,
Shoot straighter than before.


It is one of those connections that is glorious and was quite mysterious before the internet. With an open book and a scratchy record going round and round one's imagination could really feed.


How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air
'T was in the darkest depths of Mordor
I met a girl so fair
But Gollum, and the evil one
Crept up and slipped away with her
Her, her, yeah
Ain't nothing I can do, no


It was a bit of a miss when the films didn't harness my generation's soundtrack to the books and I often wonder why. Heart's cover of the Battle of Evermore is perfect

NOT mysterious before the 'Net. The reason they made the references was to please their fans when they wrote the lyrics.

Heart is always perfect! :)
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

And let's not forget the Great Tina Turner!  Or the Fantastic Pat Benatar!   Just thinking of Tina gets me............rollen, rollen, rollen on the river..................

Zeppelin was a special group.  So much power from that band, and their music was magic.  I still get carried off into some fantasy place in my mind.

My favorite Robert Plant quote: "I've sold over one hundred million albums worldwide. Very little of that has anything to do with my hair."

You forgot others



"When magic filled the air
'T was in the darkest depths of Mordor
I met a girl so fair
But Gollum, and the evil one
Crept up and slipped away with her"



"So I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains
Where the spirits go now
Over the hills where the spirits fly"
