After debuting in The Witcher season 1, Toss a Coin to Your Witcher grew to become a viral sensation. There have been slightly a whole lot of cover versions, and it was made into a level in VR rhythm game Beat Saber. A gold medal-winning sharpshooter and famous Witcher fan was welcomed home with a Russian version of it. It is no shock that The Witcher season 2 provides famous bard and Geralt BFF Jaskier a few new songs to sing. (Spoilers beneath.)
When Jaskier is reintroduced, he is sporting a hat and fronting a band, having accomplished his transformation from a lowly bard being pelted with greens to the Continent’s first rock star. As he sings Burn Butcher Burn to the delight of a full tavern, it turns into clear that regardless that he is well-known and the women love him, Jaskier’s nonetheless not pleased. A sure witcher broke his coronary heart again in season 1 and impressed a tune so widespread he has to relive the agony each time he performs. Jaskier: principally the Taylor Swift of the Witcher universe.
Catchy although it might be, Burn Butcher Burn is not the tune that deserves to go viral. As an alternative I am making a case for the tune Jaskier sings in a jail cell afterward within the sequence. Similar to Oscar Wilde, Jaskier is impressed by imprisonment to write down his actual masterpiece, which is named Whoreson Jail Blues. The tune he torments his guard with, carried out with a pair of spoons and three mice as his backing band, is the one I’ve received caught in my head after marathonning all eight episodes.
You may hear a full studio version on the official soundtrack, however I desire the unique because it seems within the present. The acoustic demo, unplugged, because it was meant to be. It’s, as they undoubtedly don’t say within the Northern Kingdoms, a banger.
