Yes, it’s THAT Neil Finn on ‘The Hobbit’ soundtrack

Listeners perusing the track list for the soundtrack of “The Hobbit” may have a “whatever happened to?” moment when it comes to “Song of the Lonely Mountain,” which is heard over the film’s end credits. It’s by New Zealand musician Neil Finn, the co-founder of Split Enz and the former frontman of Crowded House (perennial late-80s favorites “Something So Strong,” “Don’t Dream It’s Over”). Finn told Entertainment Weekly that the song is a family production; his sons pitch in on background vocals, and he admits that the “Lord of the Rings” films “have a lot of impact in our house. They’re still played a lot.” (Finn has a wee Seattle connection: his “7 Worlds Collide” project, which brought together a group of musicians to perform benefit concerts, includes Eddie Vedder.)
