Songs for Middle Earth Pt.1

So, I thought someone could like this. I honestly always need a music inspiration when writing or drawing and I have this list of songs I like to listen to when dealing with Middle Earth and its characters. Some may not fit 100% into Tolkien universe and others maybe reference to real world places, those tough are the one that I think could totally fit in a LOTR or Hobbit fanfiction. I want to share this list with you, hoping you’ll find it useful. Feel free to suggest titles in the comments if you know others, I will do a part 2 anyway (part 3 and 4 probably) and I’ll add your suggestions too. Feel also free to tag writers and artists who could be interest and let me know if you want to be added to the tag list for the other parts :)


The Soul of a Hound - Hagalaz’ Runedance  

When I found you I wandered dreading for the day to come
Our years went past; your life went fast,
Forever you’re leaving me now

We are off to a great angsty start with this one. I think it would be perfect for a funeral, it’s basically a mourning song. The lyrics part is short and only at the beginning, the rest is chorus of female voices, a lament that I find really inspiring and 100% in line with Middle Earth.


Mordred’s Lullaby (TOL mix) - Heather Dale

Hush, child
The darkness will rise from the deep
And carry you down into sleep

This one actually reference to Arthurian legend, but the singer never references to any of the character so I think it could really fit in Middle Earth. It’s basically a creepy lullaby, I onestly love it so much and it’s pretty inspiring. I don’t know if there’s is an actual character that could fit the song because the lyrics are very specific. But I feel it have a dark elf feeling to it, I could totally imagine this sung by a Mirkwood elf.


Diese Kalte Nacht- Faun

öffne mir, lass mich hinein (Open up, let me inside)
dein Liebster steht im Mondenschein (Your lover stands in the moonlight)
diese Nacht ist so kalt (This night is so cold)
so öffne mir (so open up)
denn morgen wird’s zu spät sein (For tomorrow it’ll be too late )

I discovered this one long ago, the sounds are maybe a little too modern but with a stretch of the imagination it could really fit. Of course the whole song is in German so if you want to make a character speak German for whatever reason this one could be the right one, or with another little stretch of immagination, you can pretend it’s another Middle Earth’s foreign language.


The Parting Glass - Cara Dillon

Of all the money that e’er I had, I spent it in good company.
And of all the harm that e’er I’ve done, alas it was to none but me.
And all I’ve done for want of wit, to memory now I can’t recall.

Traditional parting song. This one is really fitting and I just love it, it’s perfect for a character that is leaving and salutes everyone else, or just as a song to sing at the end of a gathering. Being traditional, is been sung by other authors too if you’d like another version or another singer. (Here you can find some examples)


False, False - Cara Dillon

But I would climb a tree that is too high for me
Asking fruit where there weren’t any growing
I was lifting warm water from beneath the cold clay
And against the stream I was rowing

Oh, look, another angsty one. This reference to the end of a relationship. It’s sad and the music tears my heart apart, I also love the lyrics I posted up here, I think they perfectly convey the meaning of the song.


Firebird’s Child - S. J. Tucker

I am the firebird! 
I am his daughter! 
I am the firebird’s child! 
I am a firebird, the boldest song you’ve ever heard 

A fire dance song. This one is almost ritual, it’s perfect if you want someone to perform some kind of mystical (almost shamanic) ritual around the fire.


Brother Stand Beside Me - Heather Dale

Brother, stand beside me
Brother, lend your arm
The land below lies stricken
And this fight has nearly come
Let them sing our praises when we’ve gone

Oh, this is my favorite one. It’s a song before the battle and it can be sung by basically any character that goes into battle in both LOTR and The Hobbit. (Eowyn yall, this is Eowyn’s song 100% don’t  fight me on this!)


Adrift - Heather Dale

Lover, dear lover, I’ve had a fell dream
My mother’s adrift on the sea!
My brothers have left her alone in the gale -
There’s no one to save her but me.

Even tough the lyrics mention Oisín, which is the main character’s name of the legend the song talks about, it’s mentioned briefly and it could be easily changed with another name, a term of of endearment, or another word at your choice. Aside from that the song is beautiful and here you can find the summary of the original story.


Fisherman’s Boy - Heather Dale

Fisherman’s boy with a bucket of water
Goes walking each day on the shore
Looking in tide-pools and crannies
For fish that were stranded
Sure-handed he’d gather them all
Throwing them back to the ocean
Back to the living once more

Honestly I think this one would be perfect for just one character of whole Middle Earth and it’s Bard. Of course talks about a Fisherman’s son, the tune is pretty and the story is so cute. Here you can find the complete lyrics, go read them if you like Bard and want to awe for hours.

made for day two of lagertha week: favorite quote. 

Runedance nibbled at some grapes as she gazed out at the land. Her land. She was to be Kahseri and she felt she should know the land and the people…
“More wine, my Lady?” Asked a servant. So Runedance turned and smiled, offering some grapes to the girl.

“Tell me a story.”

WIP sketch of some RuPat smut, sort of. Trying to get out of an artists block, and I just wanted to draw Ru really bad, and then Patra just sort of ended up needing to be there too, and then cutesyish sex pose stuff.

I think I’m going to say this is a gift art for Matla! Because Patra is the biggest cutie ever, and is her OC. Also, because giving gift art is fun~

Will probably have this inked and colored in a month or so, because I think I may be busy the next few weekends helping the Boyfriend paint figures for 40K, which will take FOREVER.
