If you got emotional just listening to the full version of Billy Boyd’s song, “The Last Goodbye” (released a few days ago), the new music video for the song is now here to tug on those heartstrings a little more. Combining scenes from the Hobbit movies as well as the Lord of the Rings films, the video really drives home the idea that the long journey of adapting our beloved Tolkien novels is coming to an end.
On writing “The Last Goodbye” Billy Boyd states:
“After seeing the film, I went to my room and I started to put down some ideas, and along with Fran and Philippa, we started to sculpt the song we thought the movie needed,” he says. “A lot of ideas took us to dead ends or we found the tone wasn’t just right. I think we discovered very quickly this wasn’t just a song to end The Battle of the Five Armies—it was a song to say goodbye to Middle-earth.” (source)
