I decided to take this opportunity to publish a Thranduil playlist that's been languishing since BotFA came out, and it has exactly ten songs. So I'm just covering each of these!And here are the 10 songs, doubling as a tracklist. They don't all have lyrics, but they do all have extremely fitting quotes that just reverberate through my head as I listen to them.
Long will I tarry 'ere I begin this war for gold.once upon a time, we shone bright in the night sky of a faraway planet. and perhaps we have always yearned to go back to the stars.for thranduil oropherion, elvenking of eryn lasgalen. crown of red leaves and sword of silver and eyes of steel and hair of mithril.
