Warning! Spoilers for Game of Thrones!!
The theme to HBO’s Game of Thrones is one of the best instrumental TV themes ever, especially when paired with the stunning interactive ever-changing map of Westeros in the beginning credits sequence. The theme was constantly going through my head last night after the season finale, making for some very weird dreams.
But my half-asleep brain got to thinking – could the theme be improved? Most classic TV themes have words. GoT might’ve been served better by a theme based on the Brady Bunch theme:
Here’s the story of a ruthless lady
Who was bringing up three very twisted kids.
All of them had hair of gold, like their uncle,
The oldest one’s a shit.
Here’s the story, of a man named Eddard,
Who was busy with six kids of his own,
They were stout folk, up north in Winterfell,
Far from the Iron Throne.
Till the one day when the lady met this fellow
And she knew that her lies would fall apart,
So this man must be declared a traitor
That’s the way they all became the Headless Starks
The Headless Starks, The Headless Starks,
That’s the way they all became the Headless Starks.
Okay, maybe one should not trust one’s sleep-brain…
