Hessian Hobbits

I’ve been reading Lord Of The Rings recently, and find it very enjoyable. One of the things I noticed straightaway was the connection to Led Zeppelin’s Ramble On:

Mine’s a tale that can’t be told,
My freedom I hold dear;
How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air,
T’was in the darkest depth of Mordor
I met a girl so fair,
But Gollum, the evil one crept up
And slipped away with her.
Her, her….yea.
Ain’t nothing I can do, no.

More (mostly less convincing) connections here:
The Led Zeppelin and JRR Tolkien Home Page

I wonder what kind of Pipe-weed Robert Plant was smokin’, eh?
