|Shire Songbook by Lindelea||28 Review(s)|
|Queen Galadriel||Reviewed Chapter: 4 on 1/23/2006|
|*sniff* Oh, how like our Sam! I've loved this one since first reading and listening to it, and I finally just had to save the lyrics and learn to sing and play it on the piano. But every time I try to sing it, I get teary-eyed. This one has to be my favourite...I hope someday I can write like that.|
Author Reply: And may He bless you too! I was just going through the songs and happened to find your reviews. This one and the one about the dance of the seasons both choke me up, for some reason.

|*chortles* Oh my goodness! Leave it to Merry! LOL! That's priceless, Lindelea, absolutely priceless! And yes, that tune is definitely an earworm. I know I've gone around humming it for a solid week straight-no kidding! It took my brother getting in my face and yelling, "Stop...humming...that...song! Whatever it is. I'd rather hear one of your Irish lullabies!" Which is saying a lot, because he hates it when I start on "Toora Loora." LOL! *I* like this tune though. :)|
Author Reply: LOL!
Do you know, I just now saw this review?
Thanks for the laugh this morning. (Ah, yes, Toora Loora, one of those tunes that is difficult to leave behind once it starts.)

|LOL! I love it, I love it!!! I've sat here and listened to the music all the way through three or four times now, just letting it carry me aloung with it. A lovely, teasing, rollicking tune that just won't get stuck in your head no matter how much you want it to, and that makes me want to take a brisk walk down a sunny path and sing at the top of my voice. Oh my, this is much better than my own courting song! Yeah, I have one of those too. :)|

|Oo, I love it! I can just imagine this cosy scene. And this is so funny because I wrote a song a couple of days ago by the same title! Not half as good, though. I'm always on the watch for more of these!|
Author Reply: Don't know why I didn't see this or your other review. Must have been having mail problems at the time.
You know what they say! GMTA. I remember once shirebound and I wrote stories with the same title, though the content was *very* different! LOL.

|Another lovely addition to the Songbook...makes me want to snuggle under a quilt with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate (and pretend I live in a place with real winters!)|
Author Reply: Ooo, lovely images--quilt, book, cup, snuggle... might have to add another verse! *g*

|Oh my, Lin! This is *wonderful*! So very hobbity and cozy! And I am in awe of your "tune composing" skills! I wish I could do that!|
Perhaps Pippin will have to teach this song to Menelcar someday, LOL!
Author Reply: Thanks!
This took as long as it would to write two or three chapters of a story... amazing how something so short can require so much concentration and effort.
I struggle with lyrics, though, and quite admire yours!
Author Reply: p.s. I can just hear them singing this!
Author Reply: (I meant my favourite minstrel and one of my favourite hobbits, that is.)
And while we're on the subject of Menelcar, will Freddy be meeting him while he's in Gondor?

|Oh, Lindelea! Did you make up all those tunes too? I've written fifty-some lullabies and about seven "mock" folk songs, not counting the special songs I love to write for fanfic...and sometimes give away! :-) But none as good as any of these! Perhaps I ought to learn to do the midis and stuff and do my own LOTR songbook. It would allow everyone to hear the tunes that way. Thank you for sharing, and I hope there are more to come! Namarie, and God bless,|
Author Reply: You've written fifty-some lullabies? Lovely! I do hope you learn to do the midis and make your own LOTR songbook.
The program I use for putting music in the computer is Noteworthy Composer. (You can find it online through google.) Though it is only about $40, it does just about everything I need it to do.
Thankfully, a friend of dh's lets me stash the midi files in a corner of his website. Someday I hope to have a working website of my own, though.
God bless you too.

|And last but not least, this one was delightful…the title alone is priceless! |
Well, this was fun...I’ve never reviewed songs before! I’m always in awe of people who can do things I can’t…like writing music, or poetry…or just writing quickly and copiously!! So brava, my dear!

|Thank you for fixing the music, it's lovely.|
Before I didn't notice the lack of an echo on the last verse...very poignant!
Author Reply: Goodness, such a belated answer (on my part)! But thanks.
