Sigur Rós cover The Rains of Castamere for Season 4 of HBO’s Game Of ThronesAnd so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that Lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o’er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o’er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.
I forget the names of towns without rivers.
A town needs a river to forgive the town.
Whatever river, whatever town—
it is much the same.
The cruel things I did I took to the river.
I begged the current: make me better.
Richard Hugo, from “The Towns We Know and Leave Behind, the Rivers We Carry with Us,” in Making Certain It Goes On: The Collected Poems of Richard Hugo (W. W. Norton & Co., 1984)
