The Witcher – The Song of The White Wolf

, , 100 Comments


The call of the white wolf is loudest at the dawn The call of a stone heart is broken and alone Born of Kaer Morhen Born of No Love The Song of the white wolf is cold as driven snow Bear not your eyes upon him lest steel or silver draw Lay not your breast against him or lips to ease his roar For the song of the White Wolf will always be sung alone For the song of the White Wolf will always be sung alone Cast not your eyes upon him lest he kiss you with his sword Lay not your heart against him or your lips to ease his roar For the song of the White Wolf will always sing alone for the song of the White Wolf will always sing alone

    I don't know what exactly but the whole show gave me this sense of bad writing or bad directing, or bad production, probably is a combination of them all along a tight Netflix budget. But unlike other popular shows that also looks pretty lame, this one seems to have soul in a few beautiful moments. So I'm gonna be waiting for the next season wishing it has improved.

    The youtuber Dan Vasc did a really neat cover on this song, go check it out! It's a little more "metally" for those who enjoy that, I for sure do haha.

    I watched The Witcher with no prior knowledge of the books or games and absolutely loved it. Geralt's a fascinating character. I can't wait for next season.

    I keep seeing negative reviews of
    “Netflix’s new Witcher show was a let down to fans and did not replace GOT nor live up to GOT its key characters are flawed and story’s are confusing vague and lack detail”
    BISH
    1) it’s not meant to replace GOT nothing will replace GOT
    (it’s meant to fill our heart of the the shit stain we call season 8 of GOT)
    2) characters are MEANT to be flawed else they have no humanity no way to feel relatable
    3) story was fairly easy to follow (good guy needs to get girl before she is captured by bad guy as he is falling for a witch)
    4) the story’s were AMAZING there meant to all intertwine and show the world of the Witcher and focus on how each character influences the other THE ONLY THING I will say is the time jumps confused me a little BUT I understood all of that once I got to the last episode the critics CAN TASTE MY SILVER BLADE THIS SHOW IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!!!!!

    The irony of the lyrics here is terribly poignant. Recall where this music is used: the final scene of the last episode.

    The bard warns listeners to “bear not your eyes upon him” or “lay not your breast against him” . . . because you will find no comfort in the White Wolf’s eyes nor his embrace.

    But Ciri gets BOTH.

    This is a powerful and damn near perfect marriage of music, lyrics, and imagery. Great storytelling!

    I mostly watched 'The Witcher' because of Henry Cavill, but I liked the story itself so much that I am listening to the audiobooks now too.

    I feel like this song has so much potential to be developed into more songs, or that this version can be further developed too. Like putting in a violin solo, a man chorus/acapella, or adding a hurdy-gurdy, mixing it to the song, or extending the original song.

    The melody is kind of starting eerie/tense, but it's not unpleasant. And you can feel that something great is going to happen. And you get sucked into this kind of fairytale-medieval theme and start to dream that you are in the witcher universe.

    Pros about this song:
    The song has a great build-up,

    A great melody.
    Simplistic, yet powerful.
    Great singing and orchestrating.
    And I get the chills of listening to it.
    I visualize myself in the witcher universe.

    Cons:
    ? none.

    As this song was in the series, I got emotional and it really touched me. (If I've heard the song without seeing the series, I've maybe reacted more neutral). But still, this is a great song! And I've probably liked it anyway though.

    This also reminds me of other stuff I really endorse, like:
    Skyrim, Game of Thrones, The Lord Of The Rings and Vikings (in general) and stuff like that.

    The Witcher series has been a fantastic experience for me so far, and I can't wait until new episodes come out!

    I've not read the books. But I've purchased all the Witcher games and all DLC's and extra stuff, and I've played a little bit on the first Witcher game. And I want to make myself experience the whole history from the beginning before I get to play the Witcher 3.

    Even though I'm not a fan of reading books, I might consider starting reading the Witcher books too, since people really recommend and love it.

    Sorry for the long post.

    There’s something about when the female voice comes in and ends at that higher note at 1:59 that hits hard

    Not many know, but this melody was written by Grzegorz Ciechowski for old polish tv show The Witcher.

    Just played this for my 4 year old little girl before bed and she was getting sleepy listening to it. She wanted to listen again.

    Does anyone know the song that is playing when Geralt is walking through the woods right before they hug?

    I have listened to this about 30 times already and it’s still as magical as the first. I might be under its spell.

    People keep saying the critics hate it but IMDb gives it an 8. You really should never even go to rotten tomatoes they're very politically driven.

    Omg, a song that isn't just basically modern pop, but middle ages-ish? In this show? Nah, can't be true.

    The final was amazing, make you cry. Finally they in that hug, full of pain and love, magic and nostalgic.
