Thats how I prefer poems, said as they should be said & in the right context. Not bits pinched here & there by a half baked Kiwi Mad
The correct versions hit home, the words make more sense, its more poignant. Not used by some half baked kiwi to either look clever or mysterious, or, to fill a gap when your to thick to think of something better.

I'm ridiculously late in responding to your comment Eldo. Razz It was a good find, and I haven't gotten around to practicing any of them, but (as with every piece of music I purchase) someday for sure. Nod (I'm just getting to a Mozart concerto I purchased over five years ago. Razz )

No surprises there.  I think it's clear that like Star Wars the music was a major part of the success, and if anything the leitmotif technique was even more obvious in LotR than Star Wars.

The famous Star Wars throne room scene without music is the best demonstration of this I've ever seen.

Isn't that the Throne Room scene with un-edited audio as well? I mean, Chewbacca's voice is not dubbed yet so he sounds like some dude screaming.

It's still demonstrates what you're talking about of course.

I really like that audio of Tolkien reading Riddles in the Dark! Especially with how he did voices. Smile

I have an entire album of Tolkien recordings. One of his friends came in with a tape recorder in 1952. Turns out Tolkien had never seen one before and joking suggested an exorcism be performed on the device before they used it. So the first recorded Tolkien is the Lord's Prayer in Gothic English.

Any recitations of the hobbit or LotR you can find on the net is from those recording sessions, so hunting around you can recapture most of it.
