And who, in Middle-earth, sang 'When I'm Cleaning Winders' and played the UKELELE?

None of them *appear* to be Bombadil - are you saying he isn't musical?
I'm afraid I couldn't possible comment.

Nope, and the run has nothing to do with movement.

(Both remaining clues are characters' names; one is their most common name, the other had to go by a secondary name.)

MAGLOR - Of the fall, mad glory is his, but the day neither begins nor ends.
2.U - You run of four, less nitrogen upon the horn.
SAM - In the tower, the same without the most common.
IVARE - The weaver's eye is forward for the most magical, beside the sea.
5.C - That which sits upon the shaft is missing nigh to Angband.
