^^^ I'm not sure. If he wrote the song, I think he's something more important.
He didn't write the song. Sam played it on Earth 2,000 years prior. How Head!Dad came to know it, and what its significance truly means, remains to be seen.
I totally agree that it remains to be seen. Certainly, it's possible that the song predated this guy.

However, I think it's easy to assume that this guy, if he is Daniel, goes back to at least as far back as the Final Five. So, he'd be contemporaneous with the song at the very least. That, combined with the fact that he is a musician, suggests to me that he wrote it.

But, again, it's all uncertain. I also have another theory that the head people/person are from a previous iteration in the cycle and that Kara's father is all the head people but appearing differently to each person. So, he'd predate the time of the Final Five and again could've written the song.

But, I'm not putting money on any of those theories!

RDM says Anders wrote the song in his podcast, saying it was an implication that wasn't made clear in "Notion"
