Season 01 The Game of Thrones Theme is the theme that we can hear over the opening credits or the main title credits. Except for the pilot where we have a prologue, every episode of season 01 starts with the main title. In its basic setting it is composed in C minor. Although it is […]

External factors in my life might have taken my attention away from the book more than I have intended, […]
