I am curious if any LOTR fans picked up these references to the Lord Of The Rings in some popular Rock Songs: (1) Rush’s 1975 album "Fly By Night’ contains a song called "Rivendell" which plainly speaks of this elven city, (2) Rush’s following 1976 album "Caress of Steel" contains a song called "The Necromancer" which is how Gandalf refers to the Dark Lord Sauron in the LOTR prequel "The Hobbit", (3) Led Zeppelin’s second album of 1969 titled "Led Zeppelin II" contains a song called "Ramble On" which has the following verse "…years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air. T’was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair. But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her.", (4) Styx has a song called "Lords of the Ring" on their Pieces of Eight album (1978) which is a likely reference to the tomes, (5) I also wonder if the song "Misty Mountain Hop" from Led Zeppelin’s 1971 album Four Symbols/Led Zeppelin IV has anything to do with the Misty Mountains of North-East Middle Earth, (6) and most certainly "The Battle of Evermore" from the same album is an actual allegory from the "Battle of the Pelennor Fields" in The Return of the King, (7) and Led Zeppelin’s later 1973 album "Houses of the Holy" contains a song "Over the Hills and Far Away" which could easily refer to "The Hobbit", (8) Genesis’ 1970 album "Trespass" has a song called "Stagnation" which seemingly refers to Gollum’s plight in such verses as "And I will wait for ever, beside the silent mirror. And fish for bitter minnows amongst the weeds and slimy water." and "To take all the dust and the dirt from my throat, To wash out the filth that is deep in my guts.". Tolkien rules!!
