Lord Of The Rings : The Alternative Soundtrack

By Gevaudan

Some thanks should probably go to Klael and his off key rendition of Kylie Minogue's `Can't get you out of my head.' He helped a bit.

Disclaimer: Not mine, the songs or the characters...I've credited them where I can but I can't always, so.... Drop me a line if you do know who wrote the song so that I can credit them. I'm not making any money from this...DON'T SUE ME!

I tried to write a humour thing before and some people said in reviews that they'd fallen off their chairs. This also is in no way my fault...DON'T SUE ME!!!!

Climbs up the spout again.
