Westeros Awakening: Listen to Jackie Evancho Sing "Rains of Castamere" from George R.R. Martin's 'Game of Thrones'

If Game of Thrones is your fancy and young talent your drink of choice, then you have to hear the latest haunting folk dirge "The Rains of Castamere," a GoT original with lyrics by the series' creator, George R.R. Martin, and music by Ramin Djawadi--as covered by the boisterous prodigy Jackie Evancho.

This wouldn't be the first time something Thrones-y has hit the popular media stage. In fact, indie rock giants The National and Icelandic soundscapers Sigur Ros covered the song, the latter even went so far as to be the band that performs at King Joffery's wedding.

The song also made an appearance in what could be regarded as the most bloody episode on television, the famous "Red Wedding" episode from the series.
