The one you've all been waiting for

Here it is, folks. The end of my top TV theme countdown.

For the past Mondays, I've been sharing my top favourite genre TV themes. These are those themes that I don't skip through when I'm re-watching a TV show, because they're so good or catchy. Today, we're at number 1, my favourite, and it's the theme song from:

Game of Thrones


The fact that I am currently enjoying the novel held no sway on my choice; I made my top 10 list before I started reading Game of Thrones. I've never seen the show either, so I really love this song purely for its instrumental goodness. I love the rich sound of the cello.

  1. Perfect score for a fantasy series.

  3. This really is one of my favorite intros...one I actually don't fast forward through every episode.

  4. Agreed; the GoT theme (and intro video) is amazing. I think I made it my #1 genre TV show theme too :)

  5. I have never watched Game of Thrones, not even a trailer or anything. It's pretty cool music though.

  6. Awesome theme. I can't click play on your video, though. And not because it's broken or anything like that. When I hear that theme (I'm hearing it in my head now) it kind of encompasses everything for a while. Sometimes days. I have to stay away from it.
    I couldn't tell you how many hours I've spent re-composing, mixing, editing that one theme...
    It's dangerous.
