So how come it's not on the soundtrack?

Check out these lines:

Mine’s a tale that can’t be told, my freedom I hold dear;
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.

Sounds like something from Lord of the Rings don'it? But in fact it's lyrics from "Ramble On" by none other than Led Zeppelin.....Posted by Hello

Led Zepplin made many references to LOR when not using Old blues roots material like Robert Johnson, hehe
Queen in there BBC recorded sessions did two fantasy type tunes if you like these sort of tunes the songs: Ogre Battles and My fairy king are classic Queen tunes with middle earth type themes

Karl All the best in the new year, Merry Christmas

All the best to you and yours, Terry. Yeah, I was just surprised I had never noticed the reference to LOTR before.
