Share songs that reference The Lord of the Rings

Do you enjoy listening to any songs that reference J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy?

 

If so, feel free to share a link to the song (there’s info here on how to do that), as well as to describe how it relates to this famous high fantasy trilogy.

 

I enjoyed reading The Lord of the Rings books and watching their film adaptations as a kid; and although I haven’t revisited them since then, I’ve noticed a few references in music that I enjoy listening to. 

 

For instance, the title of the song “Saruman’s Wish” from the London, UK-based stoner metal band Orange Goblin references a character from the trilogy. Saruman was the first of the Istari wizards who were sent to Middle-earth to counter Sauron, but he later wishes Sauron’s power for himself and attempts to usurp Middle-earth as its ruler:

And “Far Harad” by the Athens, Greece-based doom metal band Acid Mammoth is titled after a region of Middle-earth, far to the south of Gondor:

I look forward to hearing if anyone else listens to any songs that reference The Lord of the Rings as well, so feel free to share!
