The Queen’s Guard Did a Lovely, Majestic Cover of the Game of Thrones Theme Song

The Queen's Guard.

Game of Thrones is the most popular show in HBO’s history, but the theme song, composed by Ramin Djawadi, has become a phenomenon in itself. We’ve heard some lovely renditions—the song sounds particularly good as a jazz number—but none as fitting as the latest cover, performed by the Queen’s Guard right in front of Buckingham Palace.

As one would expect, the royal setting and stately band jibe perfectly with the theme’s pomp and circumstance.
