Florence + The Machine premiere enchanting lullaby 'Jenny Of Oldstones' on Game Of Thrones – listen

Weiss. The song was also sung by one of the characters during Sunday night's episode as an ominous artistic prelude to the major battle set to take place this season. It's surely no coincidence that a song connected to a Targaryen forced to choose between love and duty makes its debut even as Jon and Dany face the ultimate test of their relationship.

The song itself is based on an old story the characters within Westeros continue to circulate, focusing on Prince Duncan Targaryen, who was said to have fallen in love with a commoner known as Jenny of Oldstones. (You probably know that last guy; he used to write Game of Thrones novels.) This GoT original was recorded by Florence + the Machine for the episode; the band is the only artist featured in the final season of Game of Thrones. "The ones who had loved her the most".

The song that Podrick sings in the episode entitled "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" is called "Jenny of Oldstones".

The song could well foreshadow what's to come in the battle against the White Walkers, also; if Summerhall went up in flames because of dragons, and killed all but a few Targaryens, Winterfell could well go up in ice flames because of the Wight dragon, leaving just a handful of survivors.

The Importance of Jenny's Story While "Jenny of Oldstones" makes for ideal accompaniment as this episode closes out and we see the last defenders of Westeros preparing for their greatest battle, it has some deeper implications for two characters in particular. They would be far more willing to accept a Targaryen king who actually hails from the North. Jon already chose duty over love once before when he sided with the Night's Watch over Ygritte and the Wildlings - can he bring himself to do so a second time? Firstly, Duncan gave up the throne for love, could Daenerys or Jon do the same for one another? Prince Rhaegar, Dany's brother and Aerys and Rhaella's son, grew obsessive over the prophecy, believing in his youth that he was the Prince That Was Promised; the prophecy indicates that the prince would be born "amidst salt and smoke", and on the day Rhaegar was born, House Targaryen's summer palace Summerhall was engulfed in flames (representing smoke) and many shed tears (representing salt) over those who perished in the tragedy.
