Best Covers: Ramin Djawadi “A Forest”

No doubt you can hum Ramin Djawadi’s iconic Game Of Thrones theme song in your sleep, but did you know that he is also the ghost in the machine for the music of Westworld? In addition to writing the sci-fi thriller’s harrowing opening score, setting the stage for the asymptotic nearing of AI singularity, Djawadi also covered all of the songs you hear interpreted into the old-timey clang of the player piano. So far the songs that Djawadi has reconfigured for the Western aesthetic of Westworld include Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” Radiohead’s “No Surprises,” The Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black,” and The Cure’s “A Forest.”
