Lorde Provides the Perfect Soundtrack for Fan-Made ‘Game of Thrones’ Trailer
By Scott T. Sterling
While the enormously popular HBO series Game of Thrones has fans on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the show’s upcoming fourth season, a new fan-made trailer featuring the music of Lorde has turned the drama up even higher.
YouTube user LadyDogTrailers has assembled a new teaser pairing preview clips of the forthcoming season with Lorde’s haunting cover of Tears for Fears‘ 1985 hit, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” which she recorded for the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. The cover works so well it sounds like it was tailor-made for the show. Though some would consider Chelsea Wolfe’s “Feral Love,” which actually soundtracks one of this season’s trailers, as the ideal fit, it’s a debatable point. Lorde’s cover works just that well.
