Game of Thrones – Opening versions

Hi.

Everybody watches (or should) the HBO series, Game of Thrones.

“Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D.B.Weiss. It’s an adaptation of Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones. The series boasts an almost all British cast and is filmed at Paint Hall Studios in Belfast, as well as on location elsewhere in Northern Ireland, Malta, Croatia, Iceland and Morocco.”

Here I’m presenting the opening title:

and the thirteen violin orchestra playing (by the same person – it sounds exactly the same):

Until next time!!

No smoking allowed!

Hello, today I’m bringing you an amazing live band, that provides an awesome show! I’ve seen them only once and loved them ever since.

Yes, I’m speaking of Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra!

They’re unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard! Unless you’ve seen any of Kusturica’s movies (and you should), of course.

Just enjoy the great show that is The No Smoking Orchestra in one of their best songs, Was Romeo Really a Jerk?

Another good song is Devil in the business class

And finally, the best-known song is Pitbull Terrier (from the movie Black Cat White Cat)

Just pay some attention to the lyrics, their very witty and funny too!

The Temper Trap

Today I bring you another alternative/indie band.

Love lost

(500) Days of Summer

I discovered The Temper Trap in this lovely movie called 500 Days of Summer.

“It’s not a love story, it’s a story about love”, and I suggest all the broken hearts to see it.

Sweet Disposition

Astounding Songs, Amazing Covers

With Pedro’s last few posts containing covers by himself or his friends (and also David’s), I decided to show him what real covers are like. No, I’m not making them myself, maybe another time 😛

It is obvious that I’m just messing with him, the covers he posted are very well done, especially considering that they’re home-made. But, when I listen to a cover by a proven artist, I expect to hear something of his own in the version. So, don’t expect to hear here copies note by note, but rather very personal interpretations of some good songs. Some are even better than the originals! But I’ll leave that assessment to you..

I’ll start with a song I thought no one could or would cover, Starless by King Crimson. I came across this version by the Unthanks in Pete Sinfield’s (KC’s old lyricist) facebook page, and I was instantly blown away.
(Covers on the left, originals or most known version on the right) Enjoy 🙂
