Apparently, I'm not the only one associating this episode with modern music. Last night as I mowed the grass with my Beats over my ears, I was listening to one of my playlists. It didn't have a theme - just a random selection of music I like. I was replaying Episode Five in my mind and couldn't believe how many songs came up that aligned with it.
I think that in terms of military strategy, Fall Out Boys "This Ain't a Scene it's an Arms Race." is pretty accurate. Danys held all the cards in that race.
The Black Keys' "Little Black Submarine" pegs Dany with the lines,
"Oh can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost
And out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind"
Jon could have sung Alex Clare's "Too Close" in his scene with Dany.
"You know I'm not one to break promises
I don't want to hurt you but I need to breathe
At the end of it all, you're still my best friend
But there's something inside that I need to release
Which way is right, which way is wrong
How do I say that I need to move on?
You know we're heading separate ways"
And, when Stevie Wonder started his "Higher Ground" I immediately thought of Jon Snow and how much he longs to return north.
