My interpretation of "The Rains of Castamere", originally appearing in George R R Martin's A Storm of Swords.

Since I've gotten at least one comment about the vocals being high, I want to explain the reason behind that...My goal was for this to sound like something that might have been sung at a feast, wedding, etc. Given that Westeros has no microphones, singers in that environment would have to really project; putting the melody up higher makes that easier to do.

In defense of me not having a drum going "doom doom doom": This is obviously an important part of the version at the RW, but I think that one is portrayed as being a little bit absurd. There's at least one reference to the song being performed solo, so I think it's excusable not to have the drum either way.

I hope you enjoy my rendition! If you comment, please be considerate to those who haven't finished the books and don't refer explicitly to events in the story. Thanks.
