You read Tolkien?

There are two songs that I can think of that have very obvious references to the Lord of the Rings.(cough-nerd!)Ramble On and Battle of Evermore.
Ramble On, "Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear.
How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.
T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her....yeah."
Battle of Evermore could have been written by Bilbo Baggins. I love the fact that Led was at the top of the food chain as far as groupies go, but in reality these girls were just arm candy(among other things)to Dungeon and Dragon kids. I think I love them even more now. "People will Read again!!"
