‘The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.’

There are times when my readers demand things of me.  This is one of those times.


…And thank GOD but this is not available on Amazon… oh, wait, I had it typed in as ‘Legend of Bilbo Baggins.’  Let’s see, is there a ‘Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins‘… aww, [expletive deleted].  There is.  As part of – of course – Spaced Out – The Best of Leonard Nimoy & William Shatner.

Well, I hope you’re all happy now.

  1. Heh. Forgot about that one. Any artist as prolific and successful as Mr. Nemoy is bound to have a few….questionable works. I hope Mrs Lane has enjoyed reminding us of this fact. Clearly her opinion carries as much influence as *at least* two readers. 😉

    1. the heck with questionable. this is and was fun. and i insist on believing that he had a great time doing this. and had it been Shatner who passed we would have asked for his Lucy in the Sky rendition. 🙂

      1. But in no version of that hypothetical would we have asked for his “Mr. Tambourine Man”. There are limits.

      2. Shatner intentionally embraces the cheeze, and runs with it. I’m not sure that’s what they had in mind here.

        1. *watches whole thing again*
          Fine. I take it back. For it’s time, it fits. This was the 60s after all…

  2. I was young then, but I remember the late ’60s…believe it or not, this sort of thing was pretty much par for the course with regard to television variety shows back then.

  3. Heh. I have this on Dr. Demento’s 30th Anniversary Collection, where it’s adjacent to Kill The Wabbit, by Ozzy Fudd. (Yes, that song is about what you’d expect from the title and singer.)
