I recently began writing about all seven of the songs from SEVEN, the wonderful concept album from the Manimals, inspired by HBO’s Game of Thrones. (Full details can be found in my initial post.) I have covered six out of the seven, and now I’m on to the final song.

Summer is not only the name of Brandon Stark’s direwolf, it’s also his point of view song on SEVEN, as well as the final track.

In previous posts, I’ve talked about the excellent Game of Thrones concept album SEVEN from the Manimals. The album features seven characters from Game of Thrones, giving them each a point-of-view song. It’s a delight. (The album. I’m sure my discussions about the songs are tolerable.) Full details can be found on my introductory post.

This post will be talking about Good, a song from the perspective of the formidable fighter Brienne of Tarth.

In the previous two posts, I’ve talked about the excellent Game of Thrones concept album SEVEN from the Manimals, which features the point-of-view of seven characters from the series. You can be introduced to the full idea in my initial post, where I also talked about Daenerys Targaryen’s point-of-view song, Mother.

Cersei-Tyrion

This post will be talking about the tracks from SEVEN that correspond to Tyrion Lannister and his sister Cersei: Talk and Half. (Jaime didn’t get a song on SEVEN. But he’s kind of there with Cersei’s. Sort of.)

In my last post, I talked about the excellent Game of Thrones concept album SEVEN from the Manimals. The album is a collection of songs representing seven characters from Game of Thrones. The post not only described the concept in more detail but also featured a discussion of the song Mother, the point of view of Daenerys Targaryen.

Jon Snow: Now, I expect you to kill a lot of buttrash Lannisters with this.
Arya Stark: I’ll start making a list!

This post will be covering the tracks Teeth and Lone, which are representative of adorable murder-angel Arya Stark and Jon Snow, the young man who gave Arya her iconic instrument of death, Needle. (The best swords have names, yo.)

This post will discuss the some of the faiths presented on HBO’s Game of Thrones. I’ll try not to drop any plot spoilers, but in general I’ll be talking religious observances and possible miracles shown during the first three seasons of the show. If you are not up to date on your Game of Thrones watching, I have no idea why you’d be reading this, but it won’t be super spoilery. (Just slightly spoilery, I guess.)

Don’t Sit Under the Weirwood Tree, With Anyone Else But Me… With Anyone Else But Me… With Anyone Else But Me.

George RR Martin doesn’t do things halfway.

His stories are populated by dozens of major characters and hundreds of secondary characters who represent many cultures, speak many languages, and worship different gods. Some of the faiths appear monotheistic, some polytheistic, some with organized rituals, and some with hardly any dogma at all.

Why do we care? I don’t know. I’m just looking to write about something Game of Thrones-related and I’ve already covered helmets and crowns. But I’ll try to be entertaining.
