In the BSGverse the song was 'originally' written by Anders, right?
Actually, he all he said was that he'd played it, not that he'd written it.
As Ron Moore explained, the song is written into the fabric of the universe by whatever higher power is orchestrating everything. Every few thousand years an exceptional person has the combination of sensitivity and talent and luck necessary to discover the song and share it. Predictably, everyone who can't find the song themselves assumes the person who did invented it (including that person). On this planet we have Bob Dylan, who found the entire song after the author of the Book of Isaiah apparently had some awareness of it.
