If you’re like me and have watched The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey trailer multiple times since its Tuesday night release, then you may have that catchy song stuck in your head that the Dwarves were singing. I know I did, so like any good Entertainment Buddha would, I went ahead and found the audio for the Misty Mountain tune that the Dwarves rock out to in the Hobbit trailer.
I initially found a YouTube video from ahmedzeeshan that had trimmed the trailer down to just the song’s duration. I then took things a bit further and actually stripped the audio from the video to create a .MP3 file for your downloading pleasure. Obviously, if Howard Shore’s full soundtrack were already available for purchase I’d point you in that direction, but it is not, so we’re doing a little old school bootlegging. Please head on past the break to download the .MP3 file of the Dwarven song, or to watch the trimmed trailer clip that only shows the Dwarves belting this little diddy out. You’ve not been able to stop chanting this awesome Tolkien tune…

Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old.
The pines were roaring on the height,
The winds were moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.
