Awesome Music: Game of Thrones
All hail Ramin Djawadi! The Khal of Khals!

    open/close all folders 

     Season 1 
  • The opening for Game of Thrones. Awesome music plus Clock Punk Scenery Porn equals win.
  • Goodbye, brother.
  • "Such a small pack of wolves."
  • Pretty much every piece from the Season One denouement, Catelyn's ultimatum, Robb's crowning, Daenerys smothering her comatose husband, Jon's honour, The Night's Watch heading out in force to the Land of Forever Winter and the burning of Mirri Maz Dur on Drogo's funeral pyre.
  • The Finale of Season One (carrying into the end credits), featuring Dany and the return of dragons to the world. The strains of the opening theme for the show at different points just makes it more awesome.

     Season 2 

     Season 3 

     Season 4 
  • Ramin Djawadi's score returns in force for the season's first episode, "Two Swords". In the opening the audience is treated to a melancholic rendition of the Stark leitmotif that gradually shifts into a strong orchestral variation of "The Rains of Castamere" as House Stark's ancestral greatsword 'Ice' is melted down and reforged into two Lannister swords by Tywin, which then neatly transitions into the series' Main Theme and the opening title sequence.
  • At the end of the episode, as Arya and the Hound emerge victorious from a brutal tavern fight with Lannister loot and are travelling across a war-ravaged Riverlands towards the Vale, a remixed variation of the Main Theme plays well into the end credits, which shortly transitions into a Triumphant Reprise string variant of Jaqen H'ghar's theme "Valar Morghulis".
  • From the credits of "The Lion and the Rose", Sigur Rós' eerie cover of The Rains of Castamere. In comparison to the proud, victorious cover by The National, this version would be more apt for a funeral—perfectly symbolizing the Lannisters' new fate. Rome may not have fallen in a day, but the Lannisters did in a wedding. Even more awesome? The beginning sounds chillingly like wolves howling.
