‘Game of Thrones’ Creators Hide Show’s Ending in Playlist
You guys, I'm, like, totally a "Game of Thrones" fan now. I am in it! Okay, no, not really. I'm currently watching the recaps of each season. I'm up to season 4. Each season recap is about thirty minutes long, I need to hurry up and finish watching all the recaps because we have our "Game of Thrones" Death Draft coming up at the end of this week!
With all the theories of who's alive and who isn't, and who will ultimately sit on the Iron Throne at the end it's only pumping up fans more and more. Add one more thing to that list; "GoT" creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have created a "GoT" playlist on Spotify called "Game of Thrones: The End is Coming". You might be thinking "big deal, I create playlists all the time, whatever" but, what if the ending was hidden in the playlist? In an email to For the Record, both Benioff and Weiss said:
“The answer to the ending is one hundred percent hidden in the playlist choices. No one will believe us, but it’s true.”
The playlist has 50 songs in total and range from artists like U2, Van Morrison, Danzig, The Doors and lots and lots more. The creators really wanted to capture the essence of the final season by sharing their love of rock, metal and several other music genres.
“We were looking for songs that made us feel the way the show made us feel. There’s variety in there—Rage is not Johnny Cash. But they both have a deep inherent power.”
This is not the first playlist the creators have done for the show, in 2017 they made a different playlist called "Game of Thrones: Songs of Ice and Fire." You can also find the playlists curated by the show's composer Ramin Djawadi. Start looking for the clues in the playlist (check it out here) and see if you can figure out how the show ends. "Game of Thrones" season 8 starts April 14.
