Tolkien Filk on the Web

Updated December 9, 2001

Links to various fannish songs inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien wanted to leave room in his world "for other hands" to write music and poetry based on it, though he thought his hope desperately unlikely. He succeeded; Tolkien has inspired more song settings of his own songs, original songs, and songwriters (including me) than perhaps any other poet or writer this century (though Kipling's a contender). For a man who claimed no gift for music, "his songs are stronger songs".
