I positively love that song. I sang it for days (perhaps weeks) on end after it first came out in season 2, until my friends began to abandon me. (Silly friends.)

The crow gives me goosebumps, but only because I know I'm waiting for that third eye.

But that in combination with "our world", to me, feels just jarring. I think for someone not invested in the series or the books it won't add much suspense, it's just an odd little song and a three-eyed bird. It gives the expectation of an urban fantasy.

For someone who has read the books... well, personally, I want to see more of Westeros. Add in a character or two moving from world to world and the effect implied by the text might have come through. A showing of Jon Snow with sword and armour would have given more a sense of what the series is about. Though Bran would have been more in line with the crow...

Eh, then again, I shouldn't be complaining. I'll be happily off now, to sing the Castamere tune to myself for another couple of weeks. Maybe all the way up until next season starts.
