Filk Fest 2005!

Challenge Details

Do you belt out "Oh What a Beautiful Morning" in the car?

Do you boogie to "Cell Block Tango" in the shower?

Well, show tune lovers, this is the Challenge for you!

Just pick your favorite song from a movie or Broadway musical and rewrite it into Tolkien's universe. Any Tolkien topic is fine.


Thanks to Marta for this wonderful idea!

Aerlinn - Anything You Can Do...
General Audience
Last Updated: 28 Jul 05
Based on the song of the same name in "Annie Get Your Gun". Can't imagine where this idea came from...
Aerlinn - Three Hobbit Friends
General Audience
Last Updated: 28 Jul 05
Three Hobbit Friends to the tune of “Three Little Maids” (The Mikado)
Aerlinn - Send in the Huorns
General Audience
Last Updated: 28 Jul 05
Send in the Huorns To the tune of “Send in the Clowns” (A Little Night Music)
Azalais - Favourite Rings
General Audience
Last Updated: 06 Jul 05
Inspired (if that's the right word) by the July 2005 filkfest over on the H-A list, and by Dwim and Marta bribing my Terrible Comic Song Muse out of her slumber with cookies, curse them. Two filks of "My Favourite Things" from The Sound of Music.
Dwimordene - The Plot-warp
General Audience
Last Updated: 30 Jun 05
Another warped meshing of Rocky Horror Picture Show and LOTR. A little filk commentary on some of the films' more troublesome aspects always sounds better when you can imagine the characters in fishnets, don't you think?
Dwimordene - Knights of the King's Stables
General Audience
Last Updated: 30 Jun 05
Further proof of insanity on my part. Monty Python's "Knights of the Round Table" meets the production of LOTR. I blame Marta for suggesting filks be restricted to musical and movie songs.
Vistula the Dunadan - How Do You Solve a Problem Like Feanor?
General Audience
Last Updated: 21 Aug 05
A Feanor Filk, written to the tune of "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?" from The Sound of Music
Vistula the Dunadan - It Would Be My Precious
General Audience
Last Updated: 27 Mar 05
To the tune of: Wouldn’t It be Loverly from My Fair Lady Written for the Hobbit Filk Challenge
