Tolkien It's Still Middle Earth to Me

I came across this song about The Hobbit movies, It's Still Middle Earth to Me, to the tune of Billy Joel's It's Still Rock and Roll to Me:

To the extent that I've seen the movies (which is to say the first of the three) it's spot on. Also Michael Murry should get together with these guys and make an album (if he didn't write the lyrics in the first place, that is).

Agreed with the message.

Although one has to ask what's the matter with the singer? Are there some of Radagast's bunnies in his trousers or something?

The other members of the band seem to understand to fit their movement and general habitus with the low-energy-level of the song and the overall lazy playing of the band, but the singer seems to think he is singing on top of a Red Hot Chili Peppers or Rage Against the Machine track?

White-Hand An interesting suggestion

An interesting suggestion about an album, Pitchwife. If one was produced along the same lines, I'd buy it.
