Game of Thrones Playlist

By August 21, 2014Featured, Music

The music for HBO’s fantasy Game of Thrones TV series is composed by one of the greatest film composers, Ramin Djawadi. Yes, that’s right, the man behind the Iron Man theme, and who has also written scores for Pacific Rim, Prison Break and Person of Interest.

The Game of Thrones’ Main Title has become very popular and is recognised by almost anyone who knows anything about TV. Due to its popularity, the main theme has been covered many times and in several genres, including Jazz, Indie, Classical, 80’s, and has even been sung by goats!

‘Originality’ is an understatement. See just how creative one can be and check out the many ways in which one can approach a song and reinterpret it with complete ‘originality’.

Enjoy a medieval and non-medieval afternoon of Game of Thrones delights!

Ramin Djawadi (Original Version)

“In a world where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, the crown of Westeros comes with a price. Betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdom, from the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noble men vie for power in the bloody struggle for the Iron Throne”.

Swamp Donkeys (Jazz Version)

The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys perform the theme song to Game of Thrones at the legendary B.B. King’s Blues Club in Times Square, NYC. This one is a particularly good rendition of the song. Let’s get jazzy!

CHVRCHES (Indie Version)

“This just happened…” the Scottish synth-pop trio wrote, after recording the Game of Thrones theme song on a smartphone camera. They were bored in the studio and started playing it. “It wasn’t a cover. It was a joke!” says the band. Imagine how amazing it could sound if they really did record it for real!

Break of Reality (Cello Version)

Eargasm alert! This cello rock cover of the Game of Thrones theme is a beautiful and powerful interpretation, with wonderful sounds. I might even like this more than the original version!

Lindsey Stirling and Peter Hollens (One Voice, One Violin Version)

It’s incredible just how many sounds one can produce with one human voice, one violin and a little bit of foot stomping. This cover is glorious. It lifts you up above the ground and has you floating amongst the clouds, across the mountaintops.

Erock – Game of Thrones Meets Metal

This is definitely what I call power-speed-metal… It’s pretty insane!

Srod Almenara – The Rains of Castamere (Rock/Metal Version)

So much effort was put into composing the music and recording the video to this cover. These guys capture the essence of the Game of Thrones theme and add their very own style to it.

Camille and Kennerly Kitt (Harp Twins Electric Version)

Check out what you can do with just two harps and one audio tape. This cover of the Game of Thrones theme portrays the medieval and fantasy-like atmosphere of the fantasy series. It’s beautiful and idyllic. A very fitting video, filmed around a ruined castle, where the blonde twins look like they’ve come straight out of one of the scenes. Indeed, they “serenade the 7 kingdoms”. The Harp Twins (as you may know them) have previously performed for President Obama, at the President Lincoln Bicentennial Celebration.

Dubstep Version

If you think you’ve seen it all, think twice. There’s even a dubstep version to this theme. It’s errrm… interesting.

Game of Goats (Goat Version)

Oh wait… errmm… think again… There’s a goat version!!?? This one is even more interesting than the last one! This is bloody goat-tastic! Enjoy ☺

Peter Dinklage (Tribute Version)

Unfortunately, this song is catchier than you’d think. ‘Hilarious’ is the word.

Wine Glass, Pans and a Gallon of Water Version

This cover is actually incredible and requires a lot of talent and a hell of a lot of practice. This is awesome! It’s enchanting and pretty and mysterious. We want more!

Electro-Synth Disco Version

This re-arrangement of the Game of Thrones theme sure has us tapping our feet. I think you will like this one!
