For fans of cheesy novelty music, Star Trek, and The Lord of the Rings saga, today is your lucky day. "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" was written by Charles Randolph Grean, a legendary composer and producer who worked with Nat King Cole, Glenn Miller, and Artie Shaw during the height of the Big Band era. By the 1960s, however, Big Band music was dead, so Grean decided to move on to more pop-oriented ventures. "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" first appeared on Leonard Nimoy's 1968 album Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy.
