One of the most popular things to come out of the new show however, is a song sung by the bard Jaskier, otherwise known as Dandelion. The song is so popular that people who do not even watch the show have clung to it, and it has been recently featured in Beat Saber as a music level and has even been covered into other genres like heavy metal. There have been multiple YouTube channels that have been posting different versions of the song, and one video of the original version has 9. There are several reasons why the song is so popular. The first part of the song directly references what happened in the events right before the song starts in the episode. Earlier in the episode, Jaskier and Geralt find themselves in a local pub in Posada. After Jaskier recognizes Geralt and says his name out loud, an onlooker stops Geralt and offers to pay him for a job investigating a series of grain thefts. The onlooker suspects the culprit to be a devil but Geralt is skeptical. When Geralt later investigates, he gets into a scrap with a Sylvan named Torque, whom Geralt tries to convince to leave for good. The opening of the song talks about those initial moments when Geralt gets hired to stop a devil.
It became a viral hit shortly after the series' release in late December The song was remixed by fans in YouTube videos and received new covers within days. The song was created specifically for the TV series, and does not appear in the novels the series is based on. It had been established that the episode would be the introduction of the bard Jaskier played by Joey Batey to Geralt of Rivia Henry Cavill. Besides working out the necessary poetry, Klein reviewed the original Witcher novels, and it struck her that Geralt never got paid for the work he did, inspiring her to the key line "Toss a coin to your Witcher". Klein said that once she had this line, the rest of the lyrics took about ten minutes to finish off. The lyrics were then given to composers Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli to score as one of the first musical elements they did for the show. Since Netflix releases its content with dubbing in a number of languages, the song has been officially translated and rendered in at least 12 other languages: Polish, Czech, Japanese, German, Russian, French, Italian, Portuguese, Hungarian, Spanish, Latin Spanish and Turkish. Netflix released an official version of the song to digital and streaming music services on January 22, The song lyrics are based on the events of the show's second episode, which is also the first meeting of the bard Jaskier the in-universe author of the song and Geralt of Rivia , the titular witcher and the show's main protagonist.

Original songs in high fantasy series are nothing new. Going all the way back to Tolkien, the Lord of the Rings author loved to write little songs into his epic tales of elves and dragons and hobbits. Who could forget Pippin's song in Return of the King , sung on the eve of the climactic battle? These are always tracks with some Olde European twang, and sing-songy medieval magic, they speak to the oral tradition of storytelling from bards and court musicians and traveling minstrels. Just look at the massively popular new book series, The Kingkiller Chronicle , that follows something of a fantasy rockstar hero named Kvothe. That Lin-Manuel Miranda is turning it into a TV series should be enough evidence of the intersection of music and magic. Netflix's The Witcher follows in that tradition of inserting original music among the swords and beasts and high fantasy drama. In Episode Two of the new series we're introduced to a bard named Jaskier Joey Batey , who's following around our titular Witcher, Geralt of Rivia Henry Cavill to get some ideas for his music and make a name for himself and our hero.
