The Real “Game Of Thrones” Playlist You Need To Listen To

1554936417726 game of thrones playlist you need to listen to. 001 - the real "game of thrones" playlist you need to listen toAll I want is Game of Thrones (2011) all day every day because I’m already pretty pumped a few days from the final season’s premiere on April 14. Whatever I can get that’s even remotely related to Game of Thrones, I want. And today Spotify released a playlist called “Game of Thrones: The End Is Coming,” curated by the show’s creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, that will help accompany season 8, the show’s final season. The playlist is something of a spoiler since it’s supposed to match thematically with the show.

In fact, Benioff and Weiss chose the songs on this list because they foreshadow what will happen: “The answer to the ending is one hundred percent hidden in the playlist choices. No one will believe us, but it’s true,” Benioff and Weiss told For the Record.

However, you can tell the creators didn’t exactly put their heart and soul into the songs to match them up with the show. What you can tell, however, is that they love rock, metal, and also other genres, but mostly rock and metal. Among the tracks are “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes, “Immigrant song” by Led Zeppelin, and “Toxicity” by System of a Down.

“We were looking for songs that made us feel the way the show made us feel,” they said. “There’s variety in there—Rage is not Johnny Cash. But they both have a deep inherent power.” Ok, Benioff and Weiss. You need to get out more. The list is packed with pretty old songs, but they are kind of the same all around. With catchy riffs that used a lot of staccato, like marching bands for war. Then there’s Black Sabbath’s unforgettable “War Pigs,” and “Howlin’ For You” by The Black Keys.

But why listen to these rock and roll mega hits that, seriously, we all know and have maybe grown tired of when you can listen to Rami Djawadi’s masterpieces?

This is what you should really be listening to. The entire Game of Thrones soundtrack. Notable songs include the “Main Theme,” of course, but there’s also “Goodbye brother,” the first song devoted to the Starks from which all other Stark songs stem. It’s a beautiful composition that features string instruments with a medieval vibe to it, and they first play it in the pilot, when the Stark half-brothers, Robb and Jon, say goodbye to each before the latter leaves for the Wall.

Other great songs are the ones for each of the different House’s themes, like “Fire and Blood” for the Targaryens, and “A Lannister Always Pays His Debts,” from which “The Rains of Castamere” stems, and it just makes me shiver. Of course, the most memorable of all is “The Light of the Seven,” the song that plays for the scene of the Sept, who gives Cersei the crown. The entire sequence plays against the backdrop of the song, which features instruments that match the tone, moment and intensity of the scene.

Like I said, masterpieces.
