Song Of The Lonely Mountain (4:08)

Cover of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

From The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and 1 other release

“‘The Song of the Lonely Mountain’ was developed from a dark and mysterious theme which the dwarves sing early in the movie,” Finn tells Rolling Stone. He says Jackson and his team suggested he get in a “dwarven state of mind” as he shaped the song to play over the end credits. “After some days of mining underground (actually, in Peters office) I emerged with the song, then set about recording it with my sons Elroy and Liam. Dave Fridmann came in at the end with a bold mix. He seemed to respond well to my demands for ‘more anvil!’ Pop music needs more anvil!”

    So much better than Desolation of Smaug credit song. They should have chosen something similar to this.

    I remember that very moment when this song started in the end. It was just , I can't explain how much incredible it was. I also thought for a moment that it was Martin who sang it XD anyway, it just is so light and startling . ♥

    To those who say this song doesn't fit the film -- guys, have you read the book, may I ask you? It's a children's book, in case you missed something. Unlike the LotR, the story isn't dark, on the contrary, it's very light and positive. So I think the song matches the film's mood perfectly.
