I See Fire

I am currently obsessed with the song “I See Fire” by Ed Sheeran. I found out about it when the Hobbit: The Battle of the Three Armies came out this past december. I had it on a playlist in spotify, but I never really listened to it until today. This song perfectly describes the Hobbit.

What I like about it too is the use of the violin and the guitar. The whole song has a middle earth feel to it, and since I read the Hobbit book, the lyrics really match up with the story. It’s a really sad song because it talks about the burning of Lake-Town  by Smaug and how the city is destroyed and the lives lost. Even though it’s completely fictional, it gives me chills when I listen to it. I even risked being late to class today because I wanted to walk around campus until the song finished.

If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan like I am, you would definitely appreciate this song because it really is beautifully written.
