Game of Thrones Playlist
Brace Yourself For Jon Snow's Slow Jamz
Throwing a Game of Thrones party for the season four premiere? Set the mood with sweet sounds lifted from the characters' own iPods. OK, so maybe these are hypothetical playlists — created by the musical maestros at Rdio — but we'd like to think that these picks are pretty close to what the characters would have curated for themselves.
Jon Snow is probably weepy all the time because he's listening to the saddest Pink Floyd and Bruce Springsteen melodies. In fact, at last year's Comic-Con, actor Kit Harington admitted he can "be quite . . . emo. If Jon had an iPod, it would have exactly the same type of music as me." Soft rock on, Kit.
Anyhow, play these tunes to get pumped up for the season premiere — then make a GoT playlist of your own. Maybe a sad one for Robb Stark (RIP, brotha)? Or a "Who Let the Dogs Out"-inspired one for the direwolves?
