When HBO’s Game of Thrones was first announced, die hard fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire were torn into two camps. On the one hand, we had some people who were really excited about the series getting out there and that more people would be able to appreciate the wonderful work of this writer.
On the other hand, there were some who were apprehensive about the very same fact. The reason, however, was that there might be a lot of people just joining the TV series bandwagon without truly appreciating the books.
Who cares at this point? Both books and TV series are at a level of awesomeness that no one can overlook!
From characters to plot to casting to lines to the score – Game of Thrones is just something that gets your blood pumping in so many ways. And speaking of the score, I think that the opening music for the TV series is one of the best best created.
It is not surprising that the Game of Thrones theme has been performed and re-arranged in so many ways since the series first came out. Not too long ago, I even dug a little and found several videos of the then existing renditions: Game of Thrones Theme Song Covers.
What I have for you today is another cover, but with technology more integrated than ever: the Game of Thrones theme on eight floppy drives.
How cool is that?
Sure, it is not as impressive musically as the heavy metal version. It might not make your heart swell with emotions like the violin cover. One thing I can assure you: this Game of Thrones theme song rendition will make you miss the good old floppy drive.
