Remember That Song from The Hobbit Trailer? Here’s the Whole Thing, by a Fan

There And Back Again

Here’s a quiet little wake up for you: Shadowca7 sings all twenty-seven verses of Over the Misty Mountains Cold, which is seventeen more verses than actually appears in even The Hobbit. The folks behind Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings have always been pretty good at fitting music to the many, many bits of poetry Tolkien left lying around Middle Earth, and from the simple snippet of tune seen The Hobbit‘s trailer, fans have been able to cover and recover the mournful story of Smaug’s arrival to the Lonely Mountain (at least, told from the dwarves’ point of view).

This is why we like fans. You guys are freakin’ talented.
