Man, they're all pretty good. I hate to have to choose. I'm tempted to go with 'Into the West' just because TFotR's theme song lost to Randy Newman's theme song for Monsters Inc., while TTT's theme song wasn't even nominated (the winner that year was an Eminem song from 8 Mile) -- but it's not my favorite song of the three. Hmmm. Then again, 'Belleville' IS pretty catchy, and 'Scarlet Tide' ain't too bad either in a sot sort of way.

Eh? The 'Into the West' melody is incorporated into Howard Shore's score at least twice (once when Gandalf describes the afterlife to Pippin, and once when Sam carries Frodo up the mountain, as I recall). What's more, the song itself plays over some lovely images of the characters etc. -- the entire package is a nice visual and musical farewell to the characters we've come to know and love.

So, credits aren't part of the film? I don't know about that :?

Given that I just watched "A Mighty Wind" the other day, I'm giving "A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow" the edge. There's something that's pure and fun about it. Of course, that means it won't win, but heck... :wink:
