The Battle of Winterfell may be over, but our hearts will go on and on.

Season 8, episode 3 of Game of Thrones was aptly named 'The Long Night’.

In the action-packed episode, we saw the epic Battle of Winterfell between the living and the Army of the Dead - which resulted in Arya Stark killing the Night King in one fell swoop.

And accompanying the bloody battle montage and intensifying the mood was Ramin Djawadi’s poignant ‘Night King’ theme.

Now, someone has replaced with Céline Dion’s ballad from Titanic, ‘My Heart Will Go On’ - and we're here for it.

The solo flute line ascends, the weighty drumbeat comes in, Céline’s voice pours out… and Arya Stark stabs the icy villain, destroying his entire legion of White Walkers in the process.

The video was created by digital content editor Shahbaz Khan, who said on Twitter: “Everything’s better with Titanic music.” He’s not wrong.

Another Twitter user has since elongated the clip, adding the closing scene of the battle.

We’re not saying the Titanic music makes this scene better. In fact, maybe the addition of the power drums distracts from the (literal) darkness of this scene.

But if it’s wrong to love the sight of the awesome, ballsy Arya Stark taking out the entire army of the dead to Céline’s vocal gymnastics, we don’t want to be right.

Of course, it isn’t the first time this has been done. A few years ago, someone set the famous wand battle scene between Harry Potter and Voldemort to the Titanic music:
