13 days until Season 3 of Game of Thrones start – put your hands up if you’re excited!
I received a message a few days ago from the band XY Unlimited, who are also fans of the books and TV series and have written a very cool rock song based on A Song of Ice and Fire and they're thinking of making an acoustic recording and music video next week to celebrate the new series. They want to include some of the best, most community-popular fan art in the video.
The song is called "Live Another Day (A Song of Arya)." The lyrics include some poetic references to the novels but are general and rocking enough to be enjoyed by non-GoT fans as well. Their goal is to create the video next week so that they can tie in the release with the beginning of HBO's third season, hopefully resulting in a widely publicized Mega Win for all involved and the ASOIAF fan community at large.
If you’re interested, comment on this blog and I can get a message to them or send them an email with the artwork at: email@example.com
Here are some links to their videos:
Their single "Halloween": [link]
An Earth Day-themed acoustic song: [link]
A fan-made lyric video of their rock single "They All Fall Down" which is very musically similar to their Arya song: [link]
I think it’s an awesome idea so send them your pictures!
