'Game of Thrones' cast adds smooth lyrics, slick moves to the theme song

Entertainment Weekly asks the cast members of HBO's bloody fantasy series to punch up the show's instrumental theme song.

"Game of Thrones" fans have made a lot of demands to the creators of their favorite show, but one item that's been very low on the totem pole involves updating the show's theme song.

There's nothing wrong with the iconic theme written by composer Ramin Djawadi for the show's sweeping opening-credits sequence. However, throwing in some descriptive lyrics and a flock of interpretive dancers might help new viewers who don't realize they are about to get two scoops of violence and nudity, and save the network all that time dedicated to sifting through stacks of angry letters and emails.

The folks at Entertainment Weekly visited the show's set and asked cast members including Maisie Williams, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke to come up with some new theme song lyrics for a video on ET's Facebook page posted on Tuesday. Gwendoline Christie also contributed an interpretive dance that perfectly explains the show if "Game of Thrones" involved a lot of arm waving and head swaying.

This isn't the first time someone has tried to punch up the "Game of Thrones" theme song. Comedy musician "Weird Al" Yankovic performed at the Emmys in 2014 where he added lyrics to several TV show theme songs including "Game of Thrones" and pleaded for writer George R.R. Martin to get back to work already and write some more show scripts.
