If you possess that same special sort of cruel humour as King Joffrey Baratheon and you're already well read on the George R.R. Martin fantasy series A Song Of Ice And Fire, the basis for HBO's hit show "Game of Thrones," you probably spoiled your friends by semi-jokingly telling them "everybody dies" long before the recent infamous Red Wedding episode.
But seriously, you never know who, so as the show marches forward to its Sunday finale, be careful where you place your emotional attachments. And when your favourite Westeros resident is eventually slain, you're going to need some solace — and what better way to do that than with music?
The easy route would be to be to sit back with the "Game of Thrones" soundtrack composed by Ramin Djawadi and pretend you're one of Daenerys Targaryen's pet dragons. If that's not enough, it turns out there's a rich and not-so-secret entire realm dedicated to the music of "Game of Thrones."
So we decided to throw on our direwolf cloaks and quest to find more "Game of Thrones" music, both above and below The Wall.
Here's the best of what we found:
Florence and the Machine's "Seven Devils" Trailer.
Is anyone surprised singer Florence Welch is all about Game of Thrones? It's not like she doesn't already dress like she's got Andal blood
Ohbijou and Timber Timbre perform Game of Thrones theme song at house party
Apparently Toronto bands Ohbijou and Timber Timbre have different ideas about what makes a rippin' house party than most people. At least, people without an emergency 20-sided die in their pocket.
College Humor's "Game of Thrones" animated RPG
It's a tough choice - "usurp" or "incest" - set to an 8-bit soundtrack.
Game of Thrones theme song techno remix set to video of a fight between lions, water buffaloes and crocodiles
Heraldry and symbolism are big deals in the GoT universe, but the use of water buffaloes and crocodiles is inexact. If said video editor was serious they would have set the Game of Thrones music to this lion vs. wolf vid instead.
Colossus "The Mountain That Rides"
So there's this guy Gregor Clegane in Game of Thrones who's a real giant dick. He, like, stuck his brother's face in a fire and stuff, scarring him for life. Apparently French metal band Colossus think he rules.
Karliene's Game of Thrones cover with lyrics
Karliene actually created lyrics for the theme, turning this into a song that must slay at renaissance fairs.
The Simpsons' Game of Thrones opening sequence tribute
If Monty Burns is at King's Landing does that make him Tywin Lannister? And if the three-eyed crows are the result of nuclear mutation, will uranium-filled dirty bombs figure in the storylines once war breaks out all over Westeros? If so, excceelleeent.
Kittens sing Game of Thrones theme song
Somewhere out there there's someone who thinks this is the greatest thing ever. That person should suffer the same fate as Ned Stark.
HBO vs. Kanye West & Jay-Z - Watch The Game Of Thrones (Johan Wedel Re-Touch)
This fan vid is best enjoyed by being played seven times in a row with your best friend jumping up and down beside you spilling beer on your shoes.
Blind Guardian "War Of The Thrones"
This is what happens when a metal band decides to reinterpret Chris de Burgh's "Don't Pay The Ferryman" as five minutes of "Oh crap, war's coming" in song form.
A SONG OF INTERNETS AND NERDERY
I<strong>rish Moutarde "The Bear and the Maiden Fair"</strong> It's kind of inevitable that if author George R. R. Martin wrote some actual songs and published them in the various Ice and Fire books, then some keeners would actually try to put them to music. Celtic rock seems an appropriate choice for this Westeros "traditional" as interpreted by Irish Moutarde.
"The Rains of Castamere"
Not to spoil y'all too much, but if you hear a really crappy version of this song being played at a party, GET. THE. HECK. OUT. OF. THERE.
BEYOND THE WALL
It's no surprise that metalheads in particular would empathize with the grizzly black-clad criminals of the Night's Watch. There are multiple examples of heshers paying guitar tribute to these guardians of the north. <strong>Hammerfall "Take The Black"</strong> Somehow there are lyrics about the River Styx in there, which is kind of mixes up mythologies, but still.
The Sword "To Take The Black" fan video set to Game of Thrones season one clips "at The Wall"
Metallica heirs The Sword are particularly fond of GoT. Songs like "Winter's Wolves," "Lament for the Aurochs," and "Maiden, Mother and Crone" should be instantly recognizable to Ice and Fire fans. It's this fan video, set to The Sword's "To Take the Black" and showing Jon Snow's encounters with wights and Others in the north, that really chills the bones, though.
