My Precious

[00:03-00:23] The Pity of Gollum (Sméagol's Theme)

[00:24-00:40] The History of the Ring

[00:55-01:01] The Pity of Gollum (Sméagol's Theme)
From the Annotated Score: "Sam is suspicious. He rushes the captive as low strings recoil with an extension of the Pity of Gollum."
[01:20-01:44] The Way to Mordor

[02:43-02:55] The Pity of Gollum (Sméagol's Theme)
From the Annotated Score: "Freed, Gollum lopes though Emyn Muil's blades of rock while a grotesque twist on his Menace theme provides a bit of traveling music, first in cimbalom, then in stopped French horn. As he leads the hobbits on, winds and strings pick up the first three notes of the Pity of Gollum, flinging them through a harmonic gamut as the trio passes out of sight."
