Michael Bolton Makes A Retro Game Of Thrones Theme Song

Screen Junkies is having fun with some pretty big named singers in their new Honest Retro TV Themes. To go with the fact Honest Trailers were nominated for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series, the video is supposed to get the Emmy Voters attention. To do this they brought in Michael Bolton to do a theme song for Game of Thrones, Natasha Bedingfield for Stranger Things, Brian McKnight for This Is Us and Paula Cole for the Handmaid's Tale. They also provided the song lyrics… so you can sing along at home.

Michael Bolton

1) Stranger Things

Something strange is happening here in Hawkinstown
everything is turning upside down
Our Will may be gone
But our friendship's still strong
So turn this town up to Eleven
And ride all night long
Stranger Things
Are keeping our lights shining
Stranger Things
These moments are defining
No matter how hard
we push and crawl…
Stranger Things are inside us all

2) This Is Us

Our lives cross in many ways
And sometimes they're sad
Like losing a triplet
Or your adopted dad
what if your Mom lied to you your entire life
That's a lot of strife
This is us!
We're not cuttin' onions in here
This is us!
You'll be crying buckets of tears
This is us!
Just accept that the end is near
And someday we'll all die

3) Handmaid's Tale

Waking up in my small bed
Putting on my white n' reds
Life is good if you're a male
It's just another handmaid's tale
I don't want to wait
For the men to take over
I have worth not just to give birth
I don't want to wait
For the guys to takeover
Let the Eyes all see
As we smash the patriarchy

4) Game of Thrones

Our love burned like wildfire
Until you blew it out
Now my watch is ended
The kingdoms are in doubt
Winter is coming
There's a wall around my heart
I'm a wolf in dragon's clothing
And it's tearing me apart
I see it in the flames
Get ready for my reign
Our love is not a game
Of thrones
Shame shame shame shame
Shame on the game of thrones
