Queen album The Game is basis of Game of Thrones Cersei character storyline says theory | Music | Entertainment

The fan introduced: “I believe that George RR Martin based some of Cersei’s character development and story beats on a Queen album called The Game.

“Okay so either right now you’re either completely with me on this or you just don’t care. I haven’t even gotten to the crazy associations yet so strap in.

“I’m going to (mostly) break it down song by song, with minimal lyrical references.”

What follows is their track by track commentary in relation to Cersei’s life through Queen album The Game. Yep. Enjoy.

1. Play The Game

“This track is mostly about giving yourself over to love, and it driving you mad. Cersei primarily uses sex to get what she wants; it’s how she plays the game of thrones.”

2. Dragon Attack

“The first line is ‘Take me to the room where the red’s all red’ like the dang Red Keep.

The refrain is ‘I got a dragon on my back.’ I’m pretty sure it’s actually about heroin but.”

3. Another One Bites the Dust

“Even if I’m straight up completely off-base with the entirety of this theory, I know that George R.R. Martin has heard this song because he’s alive.

“I’m on to you, old man. But also Cersei is responsible for killing a lot of people. Could be… Could be…”

7. Don’t Try Suicide

“Tommen kills himself. Granted, this is in the show, but the next few songs are based on my assumption that a lot of the story beats in the final show were at least based on some notes from GRRM even if they don’t play out exactly as he’d have written them.”

8. Sail Away Sweet Sister

“Cersei puts her daughter on a boat to Dorne where she ultimately gets disfigured.

“Tyrion, in the show’s finale, tries to help his brother and sister by getting them on a boat out of the city. This may very well have inspired her final moments because the song opens with ‘you don’t wanna play no more.’ If I’m right, and this song and album really did guide her story, the book could end with Jaime sending her out to the sea alone.”

9. Coming Soon

“Even if Cersei does get away, this song indicates that what’s coming soon is someone or something. She’d never feel safe again. This song could have inspired the release schedule for the last two books.”

10. Save Me

Save me, save me, save me, I can’t face this life alone.

Save me, save me, save me, I’m naked and I’m far from home.

“Again, assuming Cersei is sent off on her own, even if she gets away safely… It’s possible she always longs for Jaime.”

And there we go. All we can say is someone needs to ask George RR Martin if he’s a massive Queen fan or not.
