GAME OF THRONES’ Composer Plays the Theme on a Nintendo Labo

GAME OF THRONES’ Composer Plays the Theme on a Nintendo Labo

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die,” but when you play the Game of Thrones theme on a Nintendo Labo you end up with a delightful rendition that sounds like it came from a lost ’80s video game. Well maybe not if we tried, but it definitely does when it’s played by Ramin Djawadi himself, the composer responsible for the show’s iconic opening theme.

Djawadi was asked by IGN to try and play his famous theme song entirely using the Labo’s piano set. Not only had he never seen one of the cardboard contraptions before, he had never even seen a Nintendo Switch. Like any talented performer, he just needed a moment to get used to the setup before he began laying down a bass line. He then added that classic melody every single one of us hums during the opening credits at the start of every episode. Can’t say we remember the song having such a funky drum line though. Not that we’re complaining.

If someone would please make us a Game of Thrones video game for the original Nintendo system (we’re thinking the adult, R-rated version of The Legend of Zelda), you won’t have to worry about finding the perfect version of the theme song to play.

What other track from Game of Thrones would you like to hear him play with the Labo next? Tell us in our comments section below which other song from Westeros you’d most like to hear.
