7 Songs About Hobbits NOT By Leonard Nimoy
Erwin Beekveld, "They're Taking the Hobbit to Isengard"
In 2005 Dutch musician and photographer Erwin Beekveld made a murderously addictive earworm when he put together some electro dance music over samples from the Peter Jackson films called "They're Taking the Hobbit to Isengard." If you really like it, you can listen to it on a ten-hour loop.
Nightwish's "Elevenpath" is what would happen if a 16-year-old girl who had just read the Mists of Avalon dropped acid and started writing poetry. It's basically every single fantasy trope rolled into one over a Motley Crue guitar riff. In spite of the hokiness it's a lot of fun, though, and Bilbo Baggins gets a name-drop in it.
The Great Luke Ski, "Stealing Like a Hobbit"
Ah the Great Luke Ski. I prefer MC Chris when it comes to geek-rap myself, but Luke is pretty cool. Of course the reason that Bilbo goes on the Quest of Erebor in the first place is as a thief. Though he isn't a criminal, all Hobbits are renowned for their stealth and ability to sneak. Ski links this to gangsta-rap shadings with an expertly done parody of Eminem's "Cleaning Out My Closet."
