    Middle-earth Tavern on Spotify

    Hi All,

    Please check out the "Middle-earth Tavern" public playlist on Spotify. At the moment, it holds 7 hours of tavern-ish music one might encounter throughout Eriador.

    Also, give the sister playlist "Middle-earth Tavern Late Night" a shot. This is a subset of the full Tavern playlist, isolating on the more complex and often darker themed instrumentals.

    Listen to these playlists along with the YouTube "Tavern - Inn Ambience" video/audio for complete immersion.

    I hope you enjoy!

    Argh...I don't see why these Playlists would be hidden from anybody. I now have two people "following" the Tavern Playlist.

    Make sure your search is exactly "Middle-earth Tavern". The User ID shown under the Playlist is my account # which is 1256780102. A search on that number should pull up my profile which will list the public Playlists as well.

    Thanks for the interest! You will not be disappointed.

    Just followed the playlist, good stuff indeed. Thanks for sharing. The music reminds me so much of the Middle-Earth Network Radio music. Cheers

    Just wait
    Though wide he may roam
    Always
    A hero comes home

    He goes where no one has gone
    But always
    A hero comes home

    He knows of places unknown
    Always
    A hero comes home

    He goes where no one has gone
    But always
    A hero comes home

    Contemplating a return to the game in the spirit of the latest Hobbit film getting me back in the Middle-Earth mood, decided to peruse these fine forums, found brilliant projects like this. Outstanding. Is there a reason for the hesitation for sharing a direct link? This one seems to work fine after logging in to spotify of course: https://play.spotify.com/user/125678...NTckLqlzVMzjko


    For any interested, I constructed something in the same vein on Youtube with a more dwarven focus. Obviously many middle-earth tunes can be heard within:

    Great work!

    Hammer, thank you so much! I'm thrilled that so many are enjoying this compilation. These gems are hiding in so many different places. Celtic, folk, earth goddess, pirate, movie soundtracks, game soundtracks....lots of digging, but it is certainly paying off.

    The Spotify link is genius. I dedicate the newest add: Whalebone's "Origin" to you! Cheers!

    Don't forget the sister playlist "Middle-earth Orchestra" for when you want a more relaxed soundscape: https://play.spotify.com/user/125678...LSsa8pCkYsPL2A

    Basic use of Spotify and these playlists are free to all, just sign-up and log into Spotify.

    Off now to check out Hammer's Dwarven music on youtube.

    Thank you for the kind words, but it was really no trouble on my part, you did all the work here. I'm glad I could help with the direct link though. As for my playlist, I once again hope you all enjoy, you might recognize the opening track from the BFME2 soundtrack, still one of my favorite RTS's that, if you venture to the land of Ebay, will see that PC copies STILL command the price of your average new release. Just thought I'd note that in case anyone's feeling a Tolkein game of a very different flavor

    Safe travels!

    End of the day
    at the end of the harvest
    with the sun going down

    End of the road
    with the last one behind us
    and the last sheaf is bound

    Yet over and over
    before sleep takes my eyes
    over and over
    I see the flash of the scythe
    coming down

    Light up a candle
    to see in the old way
    with the sun going down

    Don't quite understand
    how it burns up a whole day
    without making a sound

    But in some flint of your shoulder
    some look in your eye
    I see the fear of disorder
    the fear of the scythe
    coming down

    Sharp is the blade that can cut through the twilight
    with the sun going down
    It cuts through the days and change in our own life
    till the last comes around

    Everything changes
    everything dies
    in a teary reflection
    I see the flash of the scythe

    "The Scythe" by Gaia Consort

    A fisherman's line through
    A hole in the ice
    Caught the strangest of fish
    Where she drifted

    Salvation came down
    From the world far above
    And the skeleton woman
    Was lifted

    She buried her teeth
    In the hem of his coat
    As the fisherman tried
    To run past her

    In terror he fled
    Through the deepening gloom
    With the rattle of bones
    Chasing after

    Old bones don't sleep
    Old bones don't sleep
    Old bones don't sleep
    They yearn to be once again dressed
    In the tears we weep
    In the tears we weep
    In the tears we weep

    Just a portion of "Skeleton Woman" by Heather Dale (my favorite modern day minstrel!). Check out the song in it's entirety on the Middle-Earth Tavern playlist!

    A serpent lights the ancient sky
    A threat of tainted stars
    Evil stirs and in its wake
    The souls of mortals sway

    Sorrow reigns
    Over fields of red
    Spirits pace
    Through the shadows cast by their graves

    These are days and nights of venom and blood
    Heroes will rise as the anchors fall
    Brave the strife, reclaim every soul
    That belongs to the Beauty of Dawn

    Darkness strikes to blind the strong
    But Faith will guide our swords
    Loyal hearts we'll stand as one
    And fight with shields of Hope

    Pride fuels the deadly fire
    That devours our tower of gold
    The drums of war will rage and roar
    ‘Til the sun burns bright once more

    These are days and nights of venom and blood
    Heroes will rise as the anchors fall
    Brave the strife, reclaim every soul
    That belongs to the Beauty of Dawn

    'Beauty of Dawn' - Malukah

    Clocking in now with 6+ hours of music! I have a new song stuck in my head everyday.

    I'll take up this quest-just say the word-
    even though I am small
    and I have no sword.
    A party at the end is not required,
    and I promise I'll keep trying,
    even if I get tired.

    It's the wonders that I'm after,
    even if I have to fight.
    It'll all be hard and bloody,
    even when I get it right.
    I know stories change their faces
    on an inconsistent basis,
    but I swear I am not afraid!

    There must be blood, and this I knew.
    I believe there must be wonders, too.

    If somersaults and lanterns aren't
    the order of the day,
    I will still take up my weapons,
    and I'll be on my way.
    I am stubborn and won't listen,
    But I've made it this far,
    and I'd really like to stay.

    Wonders - S.J. Tucker

    With a heavy heart, The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins by Leonard Nimoy has been added to the Tavern playlist. Live long and prosper, my friends.

    Creating this playlist and digging deep to find material that truly transports a listener to our parallel Middle-earth, I've found so many incredible artists. I'm currently following the path of acoustic performers. Recent adds from Al Petteway and Robin Bullock will tickle your imagination, I guarantee. These folks would fit right in around the fireplace of the Pony.

  20. #20
    6+ hours of great material have been gathered. If you're hanging out in town, pop this playlist on for an excellent option to the in-game (beautiful but limited) music and chatter.

    The Middle-earth Tavern playlist has now topped seven hours of music. I'm adding material song by song...each one has to transport me to sitting next to an adventure worn ranger with an ale in hand and pipe weed burning.

    Loving this play list Should make my game playing more interesting

    Hi All,

    The Middle-earth Playlist now tops 8 hours of music, with over 120 tracks. I've taken a deep dive into Italian finger style guitar playing. Wonderful pieces that blend a sense of haunting and adventure with a tinge of optimism. Perfect for a gallop up the Green Road or ambushing a party of Orcs in Mirkwood.

    I'm spending time now purging the playlist, removing tracks where perhaps the vocals just didn't stand the test of time, too much high pitched flute for multiple listens, etc.

    Recent adds include music from Tim Farrell ("Memories of Shadowfax"); John Doyle ("Bitter Brew"); Rowan ("Thunder in the Falls"); and Benji Kirkpatrick ("Half a Fruit Pie").

    Please stop by, there's always something new playing,

    Fellow Taverners,

    I've started test experiencing all potential adds to the Middle-earth Tavern playlist by visiting the Prancing Pony for a listen. Leaving the LOTRO ambient noise volume at full, but music at zero, I play the targetted Spotify tune. Music moves me, and it pulls me into the space.

    Now to re-experience the 8+ hours of existing music!

    Please, enjoy,

    Story - Landroval
