Music Inspired by or about the Lord of the Rings?

I now have all three soundtracks and was wondering if anybody could pass along other songs/compositions about the Lord of the Rings outside of the score in the films (Enya's Farewell to Lorian comes to mind).

Cheers.

The easiest and obvious answer, of course, is any number of songs by Led Zeppelin. If it were up to me I'd have an Elvish-sung version of "The Battle of Evermore" playing over the end credits of King. That'd rule!!!

Nightfall in Middle Earth by Blind Guardian is a concept album inspired by the Silmarillion. Powerful stuff.

Music buffs should also check the Leonard Rosenman score for Ralph Bakshi's animated film version. While the film is terribly flawed, the score on the other hand is the best and most underappreciated aspect of the film.

Leonard Nimoy recorded a song about The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins back in the swingin' 70's.
