Loki has been a weird and wonderful watch so far as each episode has explored the mysteries of time.
The show has thrown up several jaw-dropping reveals including a female version of Loki but one thing fans were not expecting to see was Tom Hiddleston break out into an Asgardian folk song.
Episode 3 gave us just that but what exactly is the song that Loki sings?
Loki episode 3 recap
Episode 3 picks up right from where episode 2 left off with Loki following newly arrived Lady Loki through the time door to the TVA.
She plans to find and kill the Timekeepers but is delayed as Loki gets in her way. They are confronted by Renslayer but manage to escape as Loki uses the TemPad to transport them to safety, or so they think.
Instead, the TemPad – which has now run out of juice – has transported them to Lamentis-1, a doomed moon which is about to collide with its neighbouring planet, leaving no survivors.
Loki and his female counterpart, who reveals that she now goes by the name of Sylvie, agree to put their differences aside so that they can escape Lamentis-1.
However, after a run-in with an angry local, a musical train ride and a meteor strike, their only way off the moon, a spaceship called the Arc, is destroyed, leaving them stranded and facing certain death.
What song does Loki sing?
- Loki sings Jeg Saler Min Ganger.
The song that Loki sings is revealed to be Jeg Saler Min Ganger in the episode’s end credits and was originally written by Norwegian folk musician Benedicte Maurseth and writer and lyricist Erlend Nødtvedt.
Tom Hiddleston’s version of Jeg Saler Min Ganger has not been officially released yet but the song has already made its way onto YouTube courtesy of the show’s fans. Hopefully, when the Loki soundtrack is released, we’ll have an official version.
The song’s title, which is in Norwegian rather than Asgardian, translates to “I Saddle My Times” according to Google Translate, possibly a reference to Loki and Sylvie forging their own path on the Sacred Timeline.
However, another translation from LyricsTranslate suggests that the song’s title is actually “I Saddle My Horse,” which does seem to make much more sense.
Episode 3’s soundtrack
As well as Loki’s Asgardian (Norwegian) folk song, episode 3 features a number of songs, most notably during the opening Marvel logo and end credits.
Loki is available to stream now on Disney+ after premiering on June 9th, 2021.
