Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

Cersei Lannister

Natalie Imbruglia - Torn

I thought I saw a man brought to life [Ser Robert Strong?]
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldn't be that man I adored 
[fallout with Jaime? Jaime burning her letter?]
You don't seem to know, don't seem to care
What your heart is for
No, I don't know him anymore

There's nothin' where we used to lie
Conversation has run dry
That's what's going on
Nothing's fine, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith [Faith of the Seven?]
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I am shamed [Shame! Shame! Shame!]
Lying naked on the floor [Atonement?]
Illusion never changed [Paranoia?]
Into something real
Wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

So I guess the fortune teller's right [Maggy?]
I should have seen just what was there
And not some holy light
But you crawled beneath my veins and now
I don't care, I have no luck
[her own plans working against her]
I don't miss it all that much
There's just so many things
That I can't touch, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
You're a little late
I'm already torn

Torn

There's nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
[I guess GRRM needed some inspiration for AFFC & ADWD]
And that's what is goin' on
Nothin's right, I'm torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel
I'm cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn

I'm all out of faith
This is how I feel, I'm cold and I'm ashamed
Bound and broken on the floor
You're a little late
I'm already torn
Torn
Torn

I guess in the music video, the dude is Jaime Lannister.
Perhaps the first short dude that popped up behind Jaime is Tyrion lol!
Any believers in A+J=J&C twins theory? I wonder what a Targaryen-Lannister sigil would look like? Perhaps a golden dragon on a black field?
I really like Natalie's t-shirt.

I just listened to Sting's "Something the Boy Said" for the first time in ages.

When I awoke this morning 
The sun's eye was red as blood 
The stench of burning corpses 
Faces in the mud 
Am I dead or am I living? 
I'm too afraid to care, I'm too afraid to know 
I'm too afraid to look behind me 
At the feast of the crow 
We spoke our fears to the captain 
And asked what his son could know 
For we would never have marched so far 
To be food for a crow

Had to come back here and share it.

Daenerys at the ghost town of Vaes Tolorro:

Other searchers returned with tales of other fruit trees, hidden behind closed doors in secret gardens. Aggo showed her a courtyard overgrown with twisting vines and tiny green grapes, and Jhogo discovered a well where the water was pure and cold. Yet they found bones too, the skulls of the unburied dead, bleached and broken. "Ghosts," Irri muttered. "Terrible ghosts. We must not stay here, Khaleesi, this is their place."
"I fear no ghosts. Dragons are more powerful than ghosts." And figs are more important. "Go with Jhiqui and find me some clean sand for a bath, and trouble me no more with silly talk."

A Clash of Kings - Daenerys I

 

Da na na na naa naa, nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh, da na na na na na naa, nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuhh
Ghostbusters!
[...]
I ain't afraid of no ghosts!

Technically it isn't a modern song ,but a song nonetheless.

Quote

 

The Lion Banner sways and falls in the horror-haunted gloom;

A scarlet Dragon rustles by, borne on winds of doom.

In heaps the shining horsemen lie, where the thrusting lances break,

And deep in the haunted mountains, the lost, black gods awake.

Dead hands grope in the shadows, the stars turn pale with fright,

For this is the Dragon’s Hour, the triumph of Fear and Night.

 

That is quote from Robert E Howard's "The Hour of the Dragon" in The Complete Chronicles of Conan, that I read from list recommended by George RR Martin, and to me it kinda reminds loosely on synopsis of Asoiaf.

I don't know if I'm to late to the party but Ned Stark:

When a blind man cries, by Deep Purple.

Quote

Had a friend once, in a room
Had a good time, but it ended much too soon
In a cold month, in that room
We found a reason, for the things we had to do

Good fibes

For the Many-Faced God, singing to Dany:

"Bridge Over Troubled Water", Simon and Garfunkel

on Amazon Music
 

"Bridge Over Troubled Water"
 

When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
Oh when times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
Oh when darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on, silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind


Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind

think I found the perfect Jamie song. mainly for his AFFC arc and possibly his future. song kinda gives me goosebumps listening to it and thinking about his part in the next book. almost wonder if George was listening to this song around the time of writing his chapters. 

Someone is sitting there

Someone who doesn't care

Someone who only stares

-About Illyn Paine

No one is on your side

you've got nowhere to hide

there's no white horse to ride...away

-About so many people thinking of him as a rogue with no honor or morals. also the theme of white horses just fits so well with being a member of the kingsguard. but now (and him killing Arys was the final nail in the coffin then how progressively sadder the kingsguard has become and what state its in at the end of AFFC is just the dirt burying the Kingsguard's coffin) that means absolutely nothing.

No more white horses for you to ride away

No more white horses so you must stay

where you are

but maybe these white horses don't just represent the kingguards fall, but how low knighthood in general has fallen. plus all the titles in Westeros aren't gonna help Jamie in his current situation. unless his soldiers find him, Brienne is his only hope. and something tells me that the Freys and other Westerners are going to look back at how passive Jamie was in AFFC, and see that as weakness. Even rejoicing in not following Jamie anymore and being much more content under a more ruthless leader, like Devan or Strongboar or one of the Freys.

A bit predictable, perhaps, but just too perfect for me not to toss them in:

Last one for things we might anticipate to happen in TWOW or ADOS! :commie:

Not spoilers.

 

More help with the visuals. The cast of GOT did a spoof musical for a children's charity (Red Nose Day, link here). Everything is from the books, but if you're hardcore about spoilers, just don't watch. Done in 2015.

 

 

Others breaking through the Wall: Good Times by Chic I tried to think of anyone in Westeros having a genuine good time, and the Others coming through the Wall was all I could actually come up with.

 

A rumor has it that it's getting late
Time marches on, just can't wait
The clock keeps turning, why hesitate
You silly fool, you can't change your fate

Let's cut the rug, little jive and jitterbug
We want the best, we won't settle for less
Don't be a drag, participate
Clams on the half shell and roller skates, roller skates

Good times, these are the good times
Leave your cares behind, these are the good times
Good times, these are the good times
Our new state of mind, these are the good times

 

 

 

CotF, Bran, Meera, Jojen, Hodor, BR —Rock with You by Michael Jackson. I guess “rhythm” would be Jojen paste? Rock (in a cave) all (Long) Night into Sunlight (ending the Long Night) and wouldn’t ya know it, MJ looks like he’s in a cave here. Back up dancing by the CotF, Hodor and Meera.

AGOT Bran III

When his brother Robb burst into the room, breathless from his dash up the tower steps, the direwolf was licking Bran's face. Bran looked up calmly. "His name is Summer," he said.

 

Girl, close your eyes
Let that rhythm get into you
Don't try to fight it
There ain't nothin' that you can do
Relax your mind
Lay back and groove with mine
You got to feel that heat
And we can ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you (all night)
Dance you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We're gonna rock the night away

And when the groove is dead and gone... yeah
You know that love survives
So we can rock forever, on

I wanna rock (all night) with you girl (sunlight)
Rock with you, rock with you (yeah) (all night)
Dance the night away
I wanna rock with you (yeah) (all night)
Rock you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
Rock the night away
Feel the heat feel the beat (all night)
Rock you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock (all night) - rock the night away

 

 

 

Arya and the FM: Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd

 

And I know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb
And she'll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
But at least we'll both be beautiful and stay forever young
This I know, yeah, this I know

She told me, "Don't worry about it"
She told me, "Don't worry no more"
We both know we can't go without it
She told me you'll never be alone, oh, oh, woo

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

 

 

Victarion wooing Dany: Fantastic Voyage by Lakeside  (So Westeros would be the Land of Funk where it’s live, live…)

 

Hey, come on, come along take a ride
There's a party over there, that ain't no jive
It's live, live, it's all the way live
Don't even have to walk, don't even have to drive
Just slide, glide, slippity-slide
Just forget about your troubles and your 9 to 5
And just sail on (That's what you do), just sail on
Now this groove's so funky, hey, what to you think
What is it called, let's call it Lakeside stank

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage

I'm the captain of this vessel
We wanna take you on a cruise
All around the land, music is at hand (Huh)
We wanna play it for you

Come along, pack your bags
Get on up and jam y'all
Come on and ride on the funk, y'all

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Come along, ride the boat, hey bring it on me)
To the Land of Funk
Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Do you wanna ride with me)
Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Do you wanna go, ah)
To the Land of Funk, Funk, Funk
To the Land of Funk, to the Land of Funk, to the Land of Funk

Hey, come on, come along take a ride
There's a party over there, that ain't no jive
It's live, live, it's all the way live
Don't even have to walk, don't even have to drive
Just slide, glide, slippity-slide
Just forget about your troubles and your 9 to 5
And just sail on (That's what you do), just sail on
Now the groove's so funky, hey, what to you think
What is it called, let's call it Lakeside stank

If you're ready to party and you wanna get down
Bring your ma, your pa, and brother James Brown
Bring Auntie Em and Toto too
And all the party people to do their do
We'll dance and party till the early light
And say, "Hey, we're feelin' alright"
So come along, come on take a ride
There's a party over there, that ain't no lie
We're leavin' here in a cloud of smoke
And th-th-that-th-th-that-th-th-that's all folks

 

What I’m really wanting to know is who will get Abba’s Dancing Queen?

AFFC Alayne II

I had hoped to have four or five quiet years to plant some seeds and allow some fruits to ripen, but now . . . it is a good thing that I thrive on chaos. What little peace and order the five kings left us will not long survive the three queens, I fear."

The first time I read ADwD, I had Bylar by Dead Can Dance playing during Jon's last chapter. I was so shocked and my hands were sweaty whilst reading it, the built up tension that led to the final scene... And somehow every time I hear this song it reminds me of that. I love it/makes me feel edgy at the same time.
