7 Songs About Hobbits NOT By Leonard Nimoy
Led Zeppelin, "Ramble On"
Tolkien references and themes turn up all the time in Led Zeppelin songs, which is neat because they were into it when a lot of the English thought The Lord of the Rings was crap. It took hippies in America falling in love with Tolkien to turn him into the juggernaut he eventually became.
Robert Plant dropped the most Hobbit love into 1969's "Ramble On." It's hard to tell exactly what scenes he's referring to, though, because, and this cannot be stressed enough, Robert Plant is awesome but he has absolutely no idea how he's doing it. Stuff like Tolkien and Crowley goes in one ear, and comes out brilliant through his pen, but it is all accident, my friends. Pure, wonderful accident. See you at the Cineplex.
