Game of Thrones – Season 7 – Ed Sheeran – Arya Stark – Lannister Song – Hands of Gold

In Ed Sheeran’s Game of Thrones cameo during the Season 7 premiere, he provided the episode with a little musical interlude
Spoilers –

Sheeran’s cameo came about while Arya was traveling through the woods after leaving the Twins, where she had massacred what remained of House Frey. She stumbled upon a group of Lannister soldiers eating around a campfire and having a bit of a singalong before they continued to ride towards where Arya had just come from, planning to investigate what happened. A solider played by Ed Sheeran was singing, and Arya immediately had the question any Sheeran fans tuning in also had: What was that song? He identified it only as a new one.

It actually wasn’t new, though. Book fans may have recognized some of the lyrics in Sheeran’s song, which included the lines, “For hands of gold are always cold, but a woman’s hands are warm.” In George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, the song “Hands of Gold” is sung by Symon Silver Tongue. Whether that character has any connection to Sheeran’s unnamed soldier is unclear at the moment, but the song definitely has book origins.

    I just remembered: in the books, Tyrion send Bronn to kill the one who wrote this song. So it seems he lived and became a Lannister soldier. This song is about Tyrion sneaking around to get to Shae in secret. For some reason, it also resembles the relationship between Jaime and Cersei.

    He rode through the streets of the city,
    Down from his hill on high,
    O’er the wynds and the steps and the cobbles,
    He rode to a woman’s sigh.
    For she was his secret treasure,
    She was his shame and his bliss.
    And a chain and a keep are nothing,
    Compared to a woman’s kiss
    For hands of gold are always cold, but a woman’s hands are warm
    For hands of gold are always cold, but a woman’s hands are warm

  12. forbidden for life says:

    Fun fact: the song they’re singing is from the books, and it’s about Tyrion and Shae.

  13. Tone Loc14 says:

    The song is about Rhaegar. The Lannister men are losing faith and are making new songs in secret for Daenary’s.

  14. BretN7 says:

    Did you know this song is about Tyrion?

    In the books, it’s a bard called symon silvertounge who sings this to Tyrion. The song is about Tyrions secret love with Shae and the bard is singing in a way to blackmail Tyrion to let him enter the singing content in a tourney otherwise he’ll inforn Cersei or Tywin about Shae. Tyrion gets rid of this troublemaker by ordering Bronn to make him disappear. Bronn somehow gets the bard cut up and put into a soup shop.

    Probably too brutal for the tv shows Tyrion.

    “its a new one, check it out on itunes”

  16. Brik Haus says:

    Why are people shitting on Ed Sheeran for being in GoT? Shittier cameos have come and gone and people nerd out over them. Ian McShane came on, gave out a bunch of spoilers and was praised. Ed Sheeran gets two minutes on screen and the internet blows up.
