Ludicrous. Absolutely ludicrous. & showing the pointlessness of most of these online lists (though not all).
The two greatest works inspired by LOTR are both missing, in their place a load of crap. :mad:
1. Stephen Oliver's peerless music for the 1981 BBC adaption of the novel.
2. Bo Hansson's peerless album dating from the 1970s.

As a side note, I remember back in the 1970s I bought a record by a group called Bilbo Baggins - they released a cover version of Hold me by P.J. Proby

I'm still puzzled as to:

1) Why the "girl so fair" was in the darkest depths of Mordor and
2) Why/how Gollum crept up and sneaked away with her. Was he unusually charming and unfishlike?

<Takes a big drag....>

Here's my justification. The 'girl' is the ring, the singer is Frodo. It was in the darkest depths of Mordor that Frodo finally realised he wanted to hold onto the ring - so fair, (so precious!). But then Gollum crept up and 'sneaked away with her'. i.e. bit it off his finger then fell into lava.

Now damaged forever by contact by the ring, Frodo must 'ramble on' forever as he has 'gotta keep searching for my baby', i.e. he has a ring-shaped hole in his life and he cannot settle down in the Shire anymore.
