A Beatles Playlist for Lord of the Rings

Posted on

Department of Pop Culture Worlds Colliding: Did you know that many years ago, the Beatles wanted to star in a movie version of “The Lord of the Rings” books? And that said film would be directed by Stanley Kubrick? With John Lennon as Gollum? I can only imagine what the soundtrack’s playlist would look like:

I WANT TO HOLD THE PRECIOUS

NORWEGIAN ORCS

SAURON IN THE SKY WITH EYEBALL

I AM THE BALROG

UNCLE ELROND

THE BALLAD OF SAM AND FRODO

GOL-LEM-DI, GOL-LEM-DA

A DAY IN THE SHIRE

TRINKET TO HIDE

AXMAN

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY ENTS

THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD TO MORDOR
