It is interesting to think what kind of music they would have come up with.

  • A Day in The Shire
  • Think For Your Elf
  • The Continuing Story Of Bun-Gollum Bill
  • Shelob's You
  • Hey Balrog
  • Orc! Darling

The possibilities are endless…

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

^^ You're good!


Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

Surely George Martin would be Gandalf?

By that logic, then Pete Best should've been Gollum.  pete-best

Or Yoko as Gollum 

In terms of The Beatles' relationship to Pete compared to Middle-Earth lore, it makes more sense for him to play Gollum.  Assuming the 4 Beatles would play the 4 hobbits (and that Ringo would be Sam), Pete is the ideal outcast trying to get back into the group, à la Gollum trying to get back his 'preciousssss.'  a-hard-days-night-george-10

Lord of the rings seems complicated given the Beatles busy schedules, and lack of training as actors. My understanding, from articles I've read is that had a third Walter Shenson- Dick Lester movie been made, they were considering both a western, and I think the three or four Musketeers?

I guess Magical Mystery Tour is what happened instead. Good album, kind of a bad movie, although the new restored, higher rez MMT is ok, I mean it's the bloody Beatles! They only did five movies so I guess they are all special.
