If You Like Game of Thrones...

Here's a video of the carillon at the University of Wisconsin-Madison playing the theme music from the show (rather, the music is being played by Lyle Anderson). I've always been a fan of both the city of Madison as well as the U of Wisconsin-Madison (except when the University of Illinois is competing against them in sports), so this is just one more thing to like.

Here's the text beneath the video on YouTube:

The Game of Thrones theme music performed by Lyle Anderson on the UW-Madison Carillon. The carillon was originally dedicated in 1936 and has 56 bells ranging in size from 15 to 6,823 pounds. Anderson has been UW-Madison's official carillonneur for almost 30 years.

My children gave me Season 2 of GAME OF THRONES for my birthday. The music is incredibly beautiful. The opening sequence is an award winner & justifiably so.

I love all that big, bold music! You just know that there's a story to go with it.
