It's pretty nifty that Tolkein is skilled at both prose and songwriting. I have a fair amount of writing under my belt (Just one story, granted, but it's a story that's over 3,000 pages and around two million words), and in the field of storywriting I consider myself decent enough, but as for songwriting... there was exactly one scene in the story where I tried my hand at having one of the characters sing a song with lyrics I made up myself. The song I wrote was... uh... well, I'll just say that even though it's been nearly three years since I wrote it, I'm still too embarrassed to have ever gone back to read it. Maybe in a few centuries or so I will.
