Lord of the Rings Soundtrack “Easter Egg”: The Three Appearances of Beren and Lúthien


In the Extended Edition (aka the Only Edition) of the Fellowship of the Ring…

On the way to Rivendell, Aragorn and the hobbits set up a night- camp in the Midgewater Marshes. Aragorn stays awake through the night to keep watch.

Late at night, when he believes the hobbits are all asleep, he quietly sings to himself The Lay of Leithian… the story of two lovers, Beren and Lúthien, who were very similar to himself and Arwen.

The verse that appears in the soundtrack is an Elvish translation of the moment when Beren and Lúthien Tinúviel first embrace. In English:

“Tinúviel the elven-fair,
Immortal maiden elven-wise,
About him cast her shadowy hair
And arms like silver shimmering.“

But this isn’t the only time the Song of Beren and Lúthien shows up in the soundtrack.

When we first see Arwen, we hear in the soundtrack a beautiful female solo singing the words “Tinúviel elvanui, elleth alfirin” or “Tinúviel the elven fair, immortal maiden..” comparing Arwen to Lúthien. That line is also a fragment from the same verse of The Lay of Leithian we heard Aragorn sing earlier (it’s like the poor lovestruck dweeb had Arwen’s theme song stuck in his head…)

We hear the verse once more at Aragorn’s coronation in Return of the King. A female solo sings in Elvish “Tinúviel the elven fair, immortal maiden…” right before Arwen and Aragorn embrace.

(About him she casts her shadowy hair, and arms like silver shimmering…)

Finally got around to watching ep 5. Late night Haikyuu!! practice sketches! Athletic and dynamic bodies are so fun to draw. Also the entire cast of Haikyuu is so handsome (ಥ﹏ಥ) if I tried picking a favorite I’d end up listing everyone… And that’s why… I ended up drawing so many different characters for just a sketch dump LMAO oh well.

When one of the biggest movie stars of the last 10 years refers to herself as “so gay” on one of the most-watched late-night television shows on the air, it forces people to reconfigure how they think about what it means to be “gay” and who and what that term includes. Suddenly, anyone who only knew Stewart as “that girl from ‘Twilight’” and “Robert Pattinson’s ex girlfriend,” is confronted by her sexuality in a new and startling way, and it upends assumptions about the community, which is exactly why coming out is still so crucial.
