ROTK Master Lyrics List

 

 

This Master List is culled primarily from what we hear in the Complete Recordings of the ROTK, which is--in itself--mostly representative of what we hear in the Extended Edition of the ROTK. 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, closing credits or ROTK Live Concerts.

 

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

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

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

    • ROTK DVD = indicates music found on the DVD, usually refers to credit music

    • ROTK EE DVD = indicates music found on the Extended Edition DVD only, usually refers to fan club scroll music

    • 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 ROTK / 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

Bilbo's Song

 

 

We now can have up to 5 iterations of a particular song: ROTK TE ~ ROTK EE ~ ROTK regular CD soundtrack ~ FOTR CR ~ ROTK Live Symphony

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.
