Anything else I don't know how to pronounce? Seriously, call me out if I do things like that.
Er, it sounds right to me? It rhymes with 'aROUnd', which is what I was going for.

Hah! That's about what we should have expected from me. ^_^ Okay, I've put the new version in (and saved the audio with a distinctive title), so hopefully this is good:


I think I've managed to synch the choir parts up correctly.

I think that works! I also see Melian as singing from Doriath, and it would make sense for Thingol to gallivant around and then return home.

Ooh, it's kind of a shame not to keep that link, but I think I had to pull in a syllable from the other half of the line to make it all fit properly. I've put "Thingol" for now, but if you can think of a way to restore "Oh my husband dear", go for it!

Oh! Sorry. The Bakshi movie decided that 'Saruman' and 'Sauron' were confusingly similar, so changed the former to 'Aruman'... except for the times when they didn't, and left him as Saruman. Hence, Arumaning.

Fantastic! There's some great lines in all three of those songs, and singing the sons of Feanor in full sassy mode is going to be fun.
