    GRAVYTY Productivity Power Hour Mix #32 - One Song To Rule Them All

    Our philosophy here at Gravyty is to meet the moment. That means we rise to the challenge to accomplish our goals and empower others to do the same. This doesn't happen without meaningful focus and a positive attitude. 

    Today, we're introducing you to Mix #32. Since publishing, Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings has inspired artists in just about every way you can imagine. References to his work can be found up and down pop culture for the past 70 years. With this week's playlist, we want to highlight some of that lore.

    At first glance, you'll notice a lot of Led Zeppelin on here and a couple of songs from Rush. This isn't because we ran out of ideas for songs - it's because they really loved Tolkien's writing. The better half of Led Zeppelin IV is purely Tolkien-lore references and Rush wrote about 2 full albums about elves. Some of the other artists featured had a similar level of fandom, but we only had one hour to fill, so we picked the best songs that capture their talent and knowledge of The Hobbit.

    While the recent movies provide an outstanding soundtrack, hopefully, you find this selection to be a suitable replacement. We hope this list will motivate you for the next hour to help you do the best work of your life.
