Everybody wants to use Lorde’s cover of Tears for Fears to showcase the race for the Iron Throne, but it doesn’t matter because the song keeps working.


After season 4 of Game of Thrones, we got a fan-made trailer set to Lorde’s gorgeous cover of “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie soundtrack. Scratch that, we got about 10,000 of them. Why? Because it looks and sounds pitch-perfect every time.

Now, Vine user Winterfell’s Princess has made an updated video showcasing everything we’ve seen so far on the series.

And I’ve gotta tell you, I’m getting pumped for Season 7.

We can only embed the six-second clip, but the full video is available to watch if you go to Vine. If you’re too tired to click and want to watch it now, dammit, someone else published the full video on Vimeo. It’s full of spoilers up until the end of Season 6, so don’t watch if you’re not up-to-date. Hint: A lot of people die in it, cause that’s what Game of Thrones does.

Hopefully this latest music video can help keep the hounds at bay until Season 7 debuts next summer. Well, at least it will for us. Sorry-not-sorry Ramsay.
