Geek Movie Moment

I woke up with these two songs from the Rankin and Bass production of The Hobbit running through my head.

"The Greatest Adventure"

"Roads Go Ever Ever On"

Say what you want about this movie, but I almost wore out my copy (taped from HBO).

I even had the record.

And can it really be a bad movie when John Houston plays Gandalf?

As cheesy and folksy as it is, "The Greatest Adventure" is actually a neat "call-to-action":
...The chances, the changes, are all yours to make
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

The greatest adventure is there if you're bold
Let go of the moment that Life makes you hold
To measure the meaning can make you delay
It's time you stop thinking and wasting the day
And the other? "Roads Go Ever Ever On"?

Just a nice, folksy, and kinda wistful little tune.
