Thursday Movie Picks - TV Edition: TV Score/Theme Song
This week's TV theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is focusing on score/theme song. I already touched on a lot of songs I loved in the opening credits post last month, because music plays such a big part of it. So today I'm breaking a rule I normally set to myself not to talk about the same show more than once a year, and I'm focusing on the music in Game of Thrones because I love it so much. Composer Ramin Djawadi wrote so many beautiful pieces of music. But these stick out as my favorite.
1) House Stark Theme - The Starks were my favorites and just hearing this theme song makes me think of so many significant moments for each of the characters.
2) The Rains of Castamere - Is there any other song that fills you with dread like this one does? The Rains of Castamere's lyrics were in the books, and the song played at a very important and heartbreaking moment in A Storm of Swords and the episode devoted to it in season 3. Even though we had heard the theme before this, hearing it in this moment was almost scary knowing what was about to happen.
3) Light of the Seven - This is one of my favorite pieces written for the show. It plays during the final episode of season 6 and perfectly accompanies Cersei's mad plan to regain control. It's a beautiful piece of music.
Bonus - Jenny of Oldstones - From the only good episode of season 8, I love that Podrick got to sing this song. It perfectly summed up this episode. Click the link, I made sure it started at the song.
