Queen’s Guard plays ‘Game of Thrones’ theme song

Queens Guard -

The atmosphere outside Buckingham Palace was spirited and colorful as the fully costumed Queen’s Guard regales passers-by with a spot-on rendition of the “Game of Thrones” theme song.



This is not your usual changing of the guard.


The original theme’s composer, Ramin Djawadi, must be pleased. This is one of many covers that have popped up on the interwebs since the Emmy-nominated HBO series hit the small screen in April 2011.


Djawadi is no stranger to soundtrack successes,  credited with numerous blockbusters including Iron Man, Clash of the Titans, and Pacific Rim.


The “Game of Thrones” cast is no stranger to the music scene either. “Hodor” himself, actor Kristian Nairn, has recently announced that he will be embarking on a DJ tour across Australia in late August. That’s right, your favorite half-witted single word speaking servant will be putting it down on the 1‘s and 2‘s. According to RollingStone, the six-show tour will be appropriately titled “Rave of Thrones.”

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
