We usually save this space for covers of already popular tunes, but this performance deserves an exception as much as any; it’s Star Trek alumnus Leonard Nimoy singing “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins,” and for the Tolkien-uninitiated, that’s not an anotomically-correct sex toy. Baggins is the protagonist from The Hobbit, the book that chronologically preceeded the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This video was taped as part of a variety TV show that originally aired in 1967. As for the song itself, yeah, it kinda blows. But hey, Leonard Nimoy!
