We are all quite enamored of Richard Armitage portraying Thorin Oakenshield and the Dwarves singing the hauntingly poignant “Misty Mountains Cold” song in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”.
But the Finnish interviewers extracted an even more wonderful version of the song out of Richard Armitage–a cappella!
Thanks to Judiang, the blogger of “Confessions of a Watcher Blog” for snagging that RA singing clip for us. Please visit her blog to view the RA clip at:
P.S. I also found this 25 minute continous loop version of the song that I play in tandem with the movie soundtrack when I’m at work.
