Spotify Shares All New Game Of Thrones Playlist And Listening Trends

Game of Thrones is as much about sounds as sights, and as the beloved show prepares to enter its 8th and final season, we dug into how it has influenced listening on Spotify.

To time with Season 8, we’re excited to unveil a refresh of Spotify’s rock-influenced playlist “Game of Thrones: The End Is Coming” (formerly named “Songs of Ice and Fire”), a collaboration between Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff, D.B. Weiss and Spotify.

With more than 380 million streams of all Game of Thrones soundtracks and related playlists on Spotify since January 1st 2016, it’s clear that fans of the show are also fans of the music. More than 250,000 listeners have created their own Game of Thrones-themed playlists and many more have created character playlists. In fact, with what could be a hint as to who Spotify listeners think should sit on the Iron Throne, Tyrion Lannister has the most fan-made playlists - more than 7,700.

Also a big draw is the Game of Thrones’ captivating soundtrack, scored by composer Ramin Djawadi, which provides instant recall of the characters’ most dramatic moments. “Light of the Seven,” the piece you hear when Cersei blows up the Sept of Baelor in the hair-raising Season 6 finale, is the most-streamed Djawadi composition since January 1, 2016, followed by the show’s eponymous “Main Title” and then “The Winds Of Winter,” which accompanies Arya as she sails to Braavos at the conclusion of Season 4.

Here are the most-streamed songs from official Game of Thrones soundtracks from India:
