Song’s from the Movies

Where do I begin… A Masterpiece. JRR Tolkiens, The Lord of the Rings. This however is not Special Guest post it’s Movie post so I thought I’d run a little soundtrack action past you to see what you think.

Okay, okay, calm down I know these Movies aren’t Christmas films per se but they were Christmas Blockbusters over here. T’is the season of Christmas Movies and this is no exception being released between December 2001 and 2003. Can you believe it 17 years ago, Phew!

Now I also know there are those of you out their that will be banging your literary drums chanting ‘no movies, no movies’ but this was a great trilogy. This number, from Return of the King was also sung by none other than one of the greatest pop stars around… Ms Anne Lennox. Oh yeah!!

So, sit back, relax and cast your eye’s over this on. Then you can go here to have a listen.

LotRInto the WestItW

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey’s end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You’re only sleeping


What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn

To silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don’t say; We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again

And you’ll be here in my arms
Just sleeping


And all will turn to silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West

    When they were making Return, the computer people were horrified when, during the battle scene, the computer generated beings, started fighting by THEMSELVES. It was written about. They couldn’t believe it.
