"More than Half a Brandybuck!" (which explains the genealogy involved)
"The Wooded Road" (Frodo, Gandalf, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Fatty)
"The Gandalf/Saruman Power-Struggle Tango" (a la "Masochism Tango" from Rent)
"Yo! Tom Bombadil!" (a truly ill-conceived rap number)

"Leave My Master Be" (Sam's song, initially sung at Weathertop, reprised many, many times)
"Take Me! (Not of Age Doesn't Mean Underage)" (Initially Pippin's plea for inclusion in the Fellowship, reprised as a comic number in his attempt to get lucky with an Elven lass at Rivendell)

"Be My Evenstar" (Aragorn/Eowyn power ballad)
"Cruel Carhadras" (The Fellowship… a snowy adventure song)

"Frodo's Lament" (Frodo's grief at Lothlorien: "Eight there were departed from Rivendell…"; also reprised often)
"Mirror, Mirror" (Galadriel's theme)

"The Golden Hall" (Edoras chorus number, giving history, etc, with brief solos by Eowyn, Eomer, Theoden, Grima)
"In the Deep" (Helm's Deep battle song--huge chorus number, obviously)
"Flotsam and Jetsam" (comic number--Merry and Pippin a la "Brush Up Your Shakespeare")

"M. Brandybuck, Esquire" (Merry swears allegiance to Theoden)
"You Brought It on Yourself" (Gandalf scolding Pippin)

"Stewed Rabbits, No Taters" (tragio-comic Sam/Gollum number)
"My Brother/Western Windows/Not If I Passed It on the Highway" (Faramir's Ithilien medley)
Reprise medley/duet: "Frodo's Lament" and "Leave My Master Be" (Sam/Frodo)
"Tricksy" (Gollum's evil plot)
"Shelob-a-lula" (a swing/blues number sung by Shelob and showing that I am a bad, bad person)
"See It Through" (Sam leaves Frodo and takes the Ring)

Act 3

"Steward and Sons" (Minas Tirith Chorus number, with power solos by Denethor and Faramir)
reprise: "Ride, Ride, Ride" (with power solos by Merry and Eowyn)

"Into the Fire" (Frodo, Sam, Gollum at Mount Doom)
"The Steward and the King" (A Dream Ballet a la Oklahoma: Eowyn, Aragorn, Faramir and company)
"Knights of the Mark and Tower" (Merry and Pippin, this time with a Guys and Dolls spin, like Nathan Detroit and Nicely Nicely)

reprise: "Home at Bag-End" (Frodo/Sam)
