What does the song “Edge of Night” in LOTR mean?

Question by Cello_darlin525: What does the song “Edge of Night” in LOTR mean?
It is the song Pippin sings in Return of the King. I’m just curious as to what the lyrics mean or what they are talking about.

Greatest answer:

Answer by Miss Chief
“A Walking Song” is a poem in the form of a song from J. R. R. Tolkien’s fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings. It appears in the third chapter of the novel, entitled “3 is Company” usually as part of the very first volume, The Fellowship of the Ring.

They began to hum softly, as hobbits have a way of performing as they walk along, specially when they are drawing near to property at night. With most hobbits it is a supper-song or a bed-song but these hobbits hummed a walking-song (although not, of course, with out any mention of supper and bed). Frodo’s uncle Bilbo Baggins, who had adopted him and considered him his nephew, had created up the words “to a tune that was as old as the hills, and taught it to Frodo as they walked in the lanes of the Water-valley and talked about Adventure”.

Component of “A Walking Song” is featured in a profoundly distinct context in New Line Cinema’s The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, directed by Peter Jackson, and released in 2003.

Some lines from the poem are part of a bigger montage entitled “The Steward of Gondor”, which was written by Howard Shore and arranged by Philippa Boyens. The song is referred to as “The Edge of Night” soon after a phrase in the lyrics. Its melody was composed by Billy Boyd, who plays Pippin.

In the film, Denethor, the Steward of Gondor residing in its capital Minas Tirith, bids Pippin to sing for him whilst he eats. At the exact same time, Denethor’s son Faramir attempts to retake the city of Osgiliath which has been occupied by Orcs, as requested by his father. The mission is a futile one. Pippin sings even though Faramir and his horsemen are riding in slow motion to be massacred by the Orcs. As the song ends, Pippin begins to cry softly, as he realizes that Faramir most likely died in vain to try to prove to his father that he was like his slain older brother Boromir, whom Denethor loved greatly. In a later scene, a gravely wounded Faramir is dragged back to the city by his horse, to his father’s remorse.

Pippin’s song in the film is only a fraction of the poem as written by Tolkien. It all comes from the last stanza, though some lines are skipped, and some are slightly rewritten.

What Neil Young song begins with the line “Living on the edge of night “?

Question by darcyperkins: What Neil Young song begins with the line “Living on the edge of night “?
I watched a Youtube video of him singing Needle and the Damage Accomplished. At the end there is about 15 seconds of him playing the opening to the song I am referring to and singing the 1st line: “Living on the edge of night”.

Very best answer:
