Leonard Nimoy Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

Leonard Nimoy Is Bilbo's No. 1 Fan

Sit back, wee hobbit fans, and let me tell you a tale. It's set a long time ago in the psychedelic '60s in a place called Hollywood, with a magical man named Leonard Nimoy. Nimoy was known at the time for entertaining young and old alike on TV as a half-human/half Vulcan called Spock, who safeguarded the galaxy aboard a ship named the Enterprise.

When off the set, Leonard created an album called the Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy, on which he sang about our fabled J.R.R. Tolkien hero, Bilbo Baggins. A mod music video was even made for this ballad of Bilbo Baggins, complete with groovy dance moves, which we present here today. Prepare for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" with this vintage video.
