Post "The Last Goodbye" a song by Billy Boyd (Pippin)
on: November 23, 2014 11:49
Hello all,

I thought I would share a video I stumbled on a few minutes ago.

We all know the final Hobbit film is approaching. A sad prospect indeed.

Peter Jackson decided alongside, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, to let Billy Boyd have the final word in form of a song named:
"The Last Goodbye"

Oh and before you click on that link I should warn you. You may experience nostalgia, grief or goosebumps.

I hope you will enjoy this video

What a lovely song...and indeed, nostalgia, goosebumps and sadness all came into play.

Seeing the final movie will be quite bittersweet.

Thank you for posting this, Athalian.

All I know is that I pretty much have the song on repeat 24/7. Beautiful song. And even though I don't really like Thorin, Kili, or Fili, I will most likely be bawling my eyes out at the end of the movie. Because of this song.

I am glad you liked it.

I think most of us will jerk a tear when the moment arrives Rhodilwen.

Oh, how sad. I will have tears in my eyes when I sit down in the theater, before the film even starts. Truth be told, I think I am going to need a ride home because I don't trust my driving skills when my eyes are clouded with tears.

I don't really care for the Hobbit movies...and my family and I will most likely not be going to see this last movie in the theater. But I listened to this song just this evening, and it is one of my most favorite songs. I loved it. But I personally think that someone should make a video of LotR with this song. That would move me to tears. I nearly cried listening to the song and just thinking of LotR with it.

An absolutely gorgeous song. I want to go hug Billy Boyd right now.

This song...absolutely beautiful. Some many emotions... words can't even describe.

I will most likely have wet eyes at the end of this movie.

I love this song so much. I did not much like the Hobbit movies, and I don't think I will be able to see the movie in theaters, but I do love this song soooo much. The music video brought tears to my eyes.

We did end up seeing BotFA in the theater...the biggest reason I went was to hear Billy Boyd sing. My sisters and I sang along softly with the song. No one really seemed to mind; but of course there weren't many people there. And the people there didn't stay too long, anyway. But it was still fun. The song was, in my opinion, the greatest thing that came from the Hobbit Trilogy.

I love this song and the music video. It is a beautiful way to bring the saga of middle Earth to a close. The 2nd time we saw it in the theater, my sisters and I also sang along! We kept it quiet, and I don't think anyone in the theater cared here either, but most of them had left already.
Mareth; I like your quote from the Musical- I love that song too!

Yay, my sisters and I are not the only crazy ones! Though I do not think we are necessarily crazy for singing along...it was a lot of fun, I must admit.

Thank you! It's one of my favorites. I also really like 'Wonder'. And...oh, well, most of the others.

I don't think it is crazy, or not crazy in a bad way Now when we re watch the LOTR movies we sing along with Into The West as well. Of course there is no other audience to get annoyed! I love singing LOTR and Hobbit songs, and the songs from the musical.
I like "wonder", but I can't sing it yet. I sing "Now and for Always" "Lothlorien" (love that one too!), and "The Road Goes On". I would like to sing them all, including "The Cat and the Moon" .

I can't wait to get the sheet music for piano! My sisters and I like to sing The Last Goodbye in the car, along with a bunch of songs from the books, movies, and musical.

I love that the song references the song Bilbo sang before reentering the Shire. So appropriate. My favorite version of the original is by Adele McAllister.
You can find it on YouTube under Roads Go Ever, Ever On.

I've been listening to this song multiple times a day since I saw BotFA in the cinema last Christmas. Hauntingly beautiful. My favourite bit is the last line" "I bid you all a very fond farewell." A nice nod to [older] Bilbo in FotR.

This song is beautifully haunting. I first heard it in a cover by a group called Clamavi de Profundus, and when I learned who wrote it, and for what; it just made me love it all the more. <3
