When it comes to Game of Thrones, the biggest question of each and every episode is: Who will live and who will die? No one is safe, and trying to survive in such a brutal landscape has got to cause some anxiety and existential crises. Over at YouTube, AVbyte has put together a musical number featuring characters such as Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow pondering whether they will make it through Season Four. Don’t worry – it’s spoiler free and there aren’t any jazz hands.
Though we’ve seen more than our fair share of Game of Thrones music videos, I appreciate that this one has a decent production quality and that it’s modeled after actual musicals. I hear a lot of Stephen Sondheim influences in the arrangement. Could you imagine A Song of Ice and Fire by Sondheim? It would be over the top and glorious, and I’d buy the heck out of tickets to see that musical. It might have more blood than Sweeney Todd.
