Musical Monday - The Misty Mountains Cold from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Watching the entirety of this video is a bit like watching all of Peter Jackson's movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It starts off great, and captures the atmosphere and emotion of Middle-Earth, and encapsulates the story of the thirteen dwarves perfectly. After the first go through of the song, you're ready for more, because it was so good the first time. The next time, you're thinking, okay, I can listen to more of this, because it was pretty good the first few rounds. But it keeps going, and you start thinking this is getting a little tedious. Eventually the length starts to get to you and you wind up just wanting the damn thing to get to the end. By the finish you're left wondering why you thought the song was so cool in the first place.

And that's exactly what watching Peter Jackson's incredibly long and tediously overextended version of The Hobbit is like.
