Netflix has been bringing out some quality, fire content as of late. For instance, the television series The Witcher, based of the books by Andrzej Sapkowski; is taking the internet by storm. If you already binged the first and current season (if not, stop what you are doing, watch it and then come back) you probably have the catchy tune, Toss A Coin To Your Witcher in your head. Sung by a certain Bard named Jaskier.

Toss a Coin to your Witcher is a little diddy Jaskier (Joey Batey) wrote and performed for the Witcher himself. The loot player met Geralt of Rivia in the second episode of the series and wanted to join in on the Witchers adventures to make sure he accurately captures what a day in the life of a Witcher is like. Much to Geralt’s dismay, Jaskier insists on singing as they travel along. But lucky for us, Toss a Coin is amazingly catchy and is probably playing on a loop in your head.
Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli composed the song for the show. Belousova previously composed for tv series The Mist, Amazon’s The Romanoffs and Sacred Lies (of Minnow Bly), which aired on Facebook Watch. In addition, Ostinelli has composed for television series: Elementary, Homeland and Community. As well as The Mist and Sacred Lies with Belousova. Lyrics are by co-executive producer Jenny Klein. Klein has written for Supernatural, Cloak & Dagger and Marvel’s Jessica Jones. The song, performed by actor Joey Batey, (Knightfall) captured by the internet and turned into wonderous things.
This rock cover of Toss a Coin to Your Witcher by Dan Vasc, from the band FEARLESS, has only been on YouTube for a few days and is already over 600,000 views.
Even the official Netflix account for the show got in on the fun of sharing different versions of the bop.
A bard knows talent when they see it, and this, sir, this is certainly it. https://t.co/w4ZfkscSqw

The version they shared was unfinished, but because there was high demand, @kyle_reclaim dropped the whole version he remixed. And it is by far my favorite and I may or may not have played it for hours.
