FOTR Master Lyrics List

 

 

This Master List is culled primarily from what we hear in the Complete Recordings of the FOTR, which is--in itself--mostly representative of what we hear in the Extended Edition of the FOTR. But this list includes all the singing that can be heard in association with the movie whether that be in the TE-DVD, EE-DVD, OST, CR or closing credits.

 

Below, I have tried to list all the songs associated with FOTR in the order they appeared (or might have appeared had they been used).

  • OST = Original Soundtrack - indicates a regular or special edition soundtrack CD.

    • FOTR = indicates FOTR regular or limited edition soundtrack CD / The number indicates the track number

    • TTT = indicates TTT limited edition soundtrack CD which had a bonus track with FOTR EE music on it

    • 0:00 - 0:00 = indicates the time range for this track - when detailed time stamps exist, the range is a link to those stamps

    • * = indicates that the same song appears more than once in this track - the time range encompasses all the occurrences

     

  • CR = indicates the Complete Recordings of the FOTR / First number = disc number ~ Second number = track number

    • 0:00 - 0:00 = indicates the time range for this track - when detailed time stamps exist, the range is a link to those stamps

    • * = indicates that the same song appears more than once in this track - the time range encompasses all occurrences

Hymn to Elbereth

 

We now can have up to 5 iterations of a particular song: FOTR TE ~ FOTR EE ~ FOTR regular CD soundtrack ~ FOTR CR ~ alternate/unused music

And, these can all be different from each other. I could create some elaborate chart which could show all the differences...

I guess. But I do have limits on my obsessive behavior. Suffice it to say one must never assume that the music heard on the regular CD is the same as on the CR is the same as on the EE. If you want more information you must figure it out on your own.
