The Game of Thrones theme played on floppy drives is better than the original

Not to take anything away from Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi, but there’s just something about this rendition of the show’s theme on floppy drives that really tickles my fancy. The video was created by perennial floppy disk wrangler Anand Jin, who has a YouTube channel full of these kinds of remakes, if you like that sort of thing.

I think his setup works so well because, for one, he’s got 8 drives working in tandem, which allows him far more tonal subtlety than the 2 or 3-drive setups that a lot of these videos use. There’s also the large table, which I think helps add some resonance to the sound. Either way, what you’ve got here is a song pushed out through floppy drives that you’ll actually want to listen to, and probably more than once.
