Musical Friday! (Tolkien Version)

In honor of Tolkien Week, we bring you a few of the most interesting videos out there celebrating Hobbit-y goodness. Enjoy!

The Harper & The Minstrel ~ with guests Wyldefyre & The Limeybirds - The Hobbit Drinking Song
This was performed at a special event at the Florida Renaissance Festival, Feb 22, 2009, Deerfield Beach, Florida. The interpretive dancing is what really sells this.

Flight of the Concords - Frodo, Don't Wear The Ring (Season 1, ep. 11) The guys get roped into making a LOTR tribute video. This is just hilarious.

Leonard Nimoy's Ballad of Bilbo Baggins - No musical Tolkien tribute would be complete without this well-known gem of WTF-ery? Seriously? What was he thinking? Better yet, what was he on?

J.R.R. Tolkien Recites the Ring Verse - It seemed only appropriate to conclude this, not with a song but with a reading from the man himself.

*Due to a technical glitch, this posted earlier than planned, but hey, it's Friday somewhere!
