Neil Finn's 'Song of the Lonely Mountain' Hits Web
"'The Song of the Lonely Mountain' was developed from a dark and mysterious theme which the dwarves sing early in the movie," Finn told Rolling Stone magazine. "After some days of mining underground (actually, in Peter's office) I emerged with the song, then set about recording it with my sons Elroy and Liam. Dave Fridmann came in at the end with a bold mix. He seemed to respond well to my demands for "more anvil! Pop music needs more anvil!"
