There is one good thing from Thrones season coming to an end - the soundtrack is getting released. Which means that I now have enough to listen to all year long (seriously). The show has its ups and downs (it is only now that I can laugh about how they screwed up last Sunday's episode) but one thing is certain - that Ramin Djawadi will knock it out of the park with his music each time.
I only wish each year they actually released complete score with all the music used in the season - we didn't get Oberyn's theme, the music from his offer to Tyrion, Sansa's escape music or that cheerful rendition of The Beat and the Maiden Fair they always play at the weddings.
I'm gonna share some of my favorite tracks with you and all the screencaps in this post are from finale episode to get you hyped:
My definee favorite is Oathkeeper. First there is the title - it's extraordinarily clever and significant as it doesn't refer merely to the sword. Second, the last minute of the track is hands down my favorite moment of this year's score. There is still so much doubt and confusion about whether or not my most anticipated scene made it into the show but it seems to me this is the track to play it over. I just hope the last minute is not end credits but the actual scene. They wasted the best part of Mhysa track on end credits last year, I hope they won't do that again.
My second favorite is The Watchers on the Wall. Can they still use it please? It played during that 'ending' in ep.9 but fuck the beginning of it would suit the next time we see....something really cool.
Then there is The Children which is so lovely and happy and makes me think it will be used in Bran's big scene.
Breaker of Chains is another amazing track, I think it accompanies Daenerys' final scene this season
And then there is First of His Name played during Tommen's coronation and in later part at the end of trial by combat:
Game of Thrones returns with finale entitled The Children this Sunday
