♫ Sing me a sooong of a lass that is gooone! ♫
Everyone knows that the Outlander theme song, “The Skye Boat Song,” is the best theme song ever. If you don’t scream-sing-along to it before every episode, you’re not human.
But during Jamie and Claire’s travels to Paris this past season, fans quickly noticed that part of the iconic opening had been tweaked and was sung in French.
It reverted back to the English lyrics once Jamie and Claire returned to Scotland, but for most of the season, it was in funky French.
And now you can hear “The Skye Boat Song (French Version)” for the first time since Season 2 ended. Get an exclusive listen below.
Raya Yarbrough, who sings both versions, originally recorded the entire song in French under the direction of Outlander composer Bear McCreary. In the end, they decided to alter only part of the opening.
