Middle-earth Movie Songs Quiz

Here's the second party game I've come up with for this year's party!  I usually try to gear one toward people who are more familiar with the books, and one toward those who are more familiar with the movies, so here's one that involves the movies.  (And if you're familiar with both, then you are probably going to be good at both!)  These are the lyrics used in the movies, so although some of them might be in the books as well, I'm looking specifically for the lyrics sung in the movies.

Here are ten lines from songs used in Peter Jackson's six Middle-earth movies.  You have to supply the missing lyrics.  I'll post the answers and your scores on Saturday.

No fair looking them up online!  Leave your guesses in the comments.


1.  Now I see fire, inside the mountain.  I see fire burning the ___________.  ("I See Fire")

2.  May it be an _______ _______ shines down on you.  (2 words) ("May it Be")

3.  The tears we cry Are falling rain For all the _____ you told us.  ("Gollum's Song")

4.  Blunt the knives, bend the forks, Smash the ______ and burn the corks.  ("Blunt the Knives")

5.  You can drink your fancy ______, You can drink 'em by the flagon.  ("The Song of the Green Dragon")

6.  The _________ were roaring on the heights.  The winds were moaning in the night.  ("Misty Mountains")

7.  What can you see on the ____________?  Why do the white gulls call?  ("Into the West")

8.  Home is behind, the world ahead, and there are many _______ to tread.  ("Pippin's Song")

9.  But in dreams I still hear your _________.  And in dreams, we will meet again.  ("In Dreams")

10.  Many places I have been.  Many ____________ I have seen.  ("The Last Goodbye")

Randomly, I found this nice little piano version of "The Last Goodbye" on YouTube and thought I'd share.  Contains no lyrics, so listening to it here is not cheating!



Hope you've been enjoying this year's party so far!  This is the last game, but I've got another book review coming up yet.

  5. Hahahahaha! FAIL over here. I know every one of these songs (except the I See Fire song, which I never listen to), I can even sing the parts you're quoting, but no idea what they say, even though some of those should be soooooooo obvious. But you knew that. ROFL!

    However, I think I know these:

    3 is lies
    5 is ales
    7 is horizon

  6. Eee, yay! I thiiiink I know all of these. Let's see!

    1. trees
    2. evening (or "even") star
    3. lies (Okay, this song is ACTUALLY too sad for me. I like a lot of sad songs, and I kind of like this one, too, but it's just SOOO heart wrenching if you think about it. And the minor-ness of it and the melody and just EVERYTHING IS TOO MUCH, PRECIOUS.)
    4. Whoops. Don't know this one. Barrels? Kegs?
    5. ales
    6. pines
    7. horizon (*clutches heart* FEEEEELIIIIIIIINGS)
    8. paths
    9. name (love this song!)
    10. sorrows (see note for #7 :-P)

    Thanks for the fun game! :)

  13. Well I was trying to sing along as I answered these and found that I'm not always sure of the words of these songs? This is a serious problem. O_O So once I submit my guesses I'm going to go and listen to them all again. :D

    1. Trees?
    2. I confess, I don't think I've every listened to this song more than once.
    3. Lies?
    4. Glasses?
    5. Ales (Does ale look weird spelled out to anyone but me?)
    6. Pines
    7. Horizon
    8. Paths
    9. Name
    10. Sorrows

    I stopped putting question marks behind every answer but I do think they belong there. Hahaha. Great game, Hamlette!

  14. My, these games just keep getting more and more fun, don't they? :D (Except...um, I apparently don't know these lyrics as much as I used to? *stares into space because I realize my memory is fading* XP)

    Let's give this the old college try. *gulp*

    1) trees? (Either that or breeze...but I think that's the next verse)
    2) evening star
    3) lies (sounds right in my head--the reasoning for most of my answers)
    4) bottles
    5) brew? (I don't even remember the tune. *hides in shame* Obviously, I'm due for a rewatch!)
    6) pines
    7) HORIZON!!! (Ahem. Yesh. I know this one very well :P)
    8) paths
    9) voice?? (that's the boring answer, and it's most likely wrong)
    10) troubles (*gets emotional just thinking of this song*)

    All right. Well. That happened. Hopefully I got a passing grade. ;) Thanks for the challenge!
