I love how similar this is to Concerning Hobbits from Lord of the Rings, but has a more mature sound at the beginning, due to the oboe. I think it's an oboe?

@Nathaniel-- I ' m not all mean. In fact, Sam goes to the Undying Lands later on. Granted that's after Rosie dies...but it's still kind of happy.

Until you remember that Frodo left both the Shire and Sam.

One cannot simply hear the Shire theme and not start smiling.

I love the original Hobbit theme. It captures the essence of Bilbo, his home, and the Shire so well, and when the motif is repeated later it takes on a sense of homesickness .

@aejudd09_Pl e a s e elaborate, how exactly are my comments rude and hurtful?
Report as inappropriate
@aejudd09_Te c h n i c a l l y , its impossible for a book and a movie to be exactly identical, since one is narrated and the other is on screen. So I understand that all movies inspired by literature will be forced to be creative, which I have no problem with when done correctly. What I do have a problem with is that, unlike LOTR, they added to the script to expand 1 book into 3 movies. It was all so poorly executed that, like the prequel star wars, it taints the original trilogy.

But it still sounds better in the Fellowship of the Ring.

I don't care how many times Shore reprised it - the Shire theme will always be the best!!

Amazing

@JacobE: I HAVE read the Hobbit, and yes, the characters and storyline are changed some, but I dare you to name a movie in which that isn't true. Also, I've seen a lot of your comments around lately and they are often rude and hurtful to other fans on the site. Please stop it.

What I like about the hobbit soundtracks is that they do a good job of blending new music with pre-existing themes. They aren't too reliant on music that's already been introduced, but they use just enough to keep the LOTR feel.

@aejudd09_Th e Hobbit movies aren't even close to being faithful to Tolkien's canon. The storyline, characters, timeline, etc were all messed up and rewritten. If you want to know how it should have happened, read the book.

@The Awesome One: The movies are very different from the book itself, but almost all of the significant additions are drawn from the info in the LOTR appendices about what was going on at that time. The Kili/Tauriel thing is all that Peter Jackson made up, and it isn't outside the realm of possibility - there have been human/elf pairings, so why not dwarf/elf? The movies aren't necessarily faithful to "The Hobbit," but they are faithful to the Tolkien canon as a whole.

4/5 stars. Nice blend of the Shire music from the Hobbit as well as LOTR.

Wish they had done a better job with the movies and making them more like the book. But I love this film score. xD

The same as Sir Gwaine but a little cooler.

its sounds really peaceful and then happy and cheerful, like hobbits, then at the 3 minute mark it sounds sly and careful but still happy, then at the end it just starts to get a tiny bit grim
