There’s no shortage of Game of Thrones related humor at Funny or Die. Most recently, the site produced a medley of pop songs with a Game of Thrones twist, parodying Queen, Madonna, the musical, Hamilton and
Elvis Big Mama Thornton, among others.
The compilation includes pop odes to Tyrion, Cersei, Jon Snow, Arya and the Hound and an anti-Theon ballad. Which character do you wish they’d tweaked a pop song for? I’d would have enjoyed a Melisandre-centric rendition of “Witchy Woman,” myself.

Who knows how long
I stopped caring about your story”
I like that one. 😛
“Livin’ in a Tyrion World” good also
Funny or die can go choke. (Theon fan here obviously).
So is Petra. I’m surprised she managed to keep the article so neutral 😛
She’s a better person than I am, lol
I must be missing some cultural reference because I didn’t find these funny at all, just awkward. Shrug, wrong culture.
I think GoT’s main strength is that, while being an American HBO show, it isn’t “typically American”, so it’s hugely popular around the world. It’s something viewers in other countries, other cultures can identify with.
The songs were good! I quite enjoyed them 😉
“Winter is coming” is quite an old joke, we’re Dreaming of Spring here…We had +14 C and sunny here yesterday. Uhm, it later got dumped 15 centimetres (6 inches) of the cold, white stuff. Looks very pretty, makes me think it was good I didn’t change my car’s tyres quite yet. I still have studs to see me through the frozen lanes. I’ll to change tyres soon later.
I don’t think you (we) are missing cultural references – for me, too, this was awkward, and at times even painful to watch. Humor is a very personal thing, and I think it’s good we don’t all enjoy the same stuff 😉
I posted some parodies myself here in the past. To name a few:
Ramsay Bolton – flayin’ alive
The night king – dont’t stop me now
Happy to reshare if anyone’s interested
Lol that was pretty funny. Now I’m going to have those songs in my head all day.
Perfect songs for each character (this is a work in progress):
Jaime – “I Just Died in Your Arms Tonight” by Cutting Crew
Bran – “Magic Man” by Heart
Jon Snow – “You Know Nothing” by The Swans
Sandor/The Hound – “5-Piece Chicken Dinner” by The Beastie Boys
Jorah – “Father Figure” by George Michael
Daenerys – “Light My Fire” by The Doors, “Fire” by Jimi Hendrix, “Fire Woman” by The Cult, or “Blood and Fire” by Van Halen
Night King – “You Shook Me all Night Long” by AC/DC
Drogon/Viserion/Rhaegal – “Firestarter” by Prodigy, “Set the World on Fire” by David Bowie, or “Fight Fire with Fire” by Metallica.
Still working on some others, but it’s hard to do this at work, so I’ll pick it back up later.
“Cold as Ice” by Foreigner came to mind for NK.
“Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-a-Lot for Gilly. 😛
Yes, yes, and yes!
I was kind of torn between selecting songs that I personally enjoy vs. just any song that would fit. I’m trying to find songs that I like first, but if I can’t find one, I’ll go with whatever. I like just about all of the songs on the list, though, admittedly, I have never heard “You Know Nothing” by The Swans. It was just too perfect to pass up though.
Night King’s theme song is “Strangers in the Night” by Ol’ Blue Eyes himself
I was tempted to weigh in but chose neutrality instead. I’ll save my soapbox moments for special occasions
A couple that came to mind for me:
Arya – “Karma Police” by Radiohead
Sansa – “Dreams” by The Cranberries
I couldn’t tell if he was supposed to be Jon or Sam… or both…
