reswati Posted June 14, 2009 Share Posted June 14, 2009 I actually liked the music used in the movies, since it had a sort of timeless feeling about it, and sounded quite epic. Also the different themes that went with the different races illustrated the moodswings very well in my opinion (creepy music with loud drums for Saruman,and for the troops of Mordor, etherical almost otherworldly voices for the Elves and happy medieval-esque music for the Hobbits in the beginning of the movie) I have all three soundtrack albums and listen to them every now and then and still find many new interesting aspects about them....I love the use of Elvish languages (Sindarin and Quenya) which both sound very beautiful even without music. I must admit that Zeppelin are also Tolkien related/inspired but their music would not fit into the movie due to the use of modern instruments. An electric guitar would just be a tad odd in a medieval scenario-just like the modern music used in "A knights tale" and the modern music references in "Moulin Rouge" did not really enhance the realism of those films (Peter Jackson wanted to depict the LOTR movies as a "real world" with a history of its own....had there been a Led Zeppelin in that world they would have sounded different -more acoustical- since there was no use of electricity in Middle Earth). It would not be strange to me if they had used Robert singing lyrics over some layers of mandolins, hurdy gurdy's and so on which would have worked very well as one of the end titles for one of the films, but heck....the movies are made and finished and should not be "George Lucassified" every ten years from now on. Maybe someone reads this and asks one of the Zeppelin members to participate in one of the two Hobbit movies that are now beeing made to contribute their talents to that project, and to write some music that fits into that scenario...... (or we will have Bilbo with his ghettoblaster cranking up "Whole lotta love" of course) :lol: Jeez what a lot of writing.....I get blisters on my fingers....
