This video of the New Orleans Swamp Donkeys playing the theme to Game of Thrones
during a show in New York is getting some attention, posted at Gawker, Slate, Vanity Fair
and elsewhere. Vanity Fair discloses
that editor David Friend's son (Sam Friend) is in the band. At Gawker
it has prompted two debates: Is it ragtime? How similar is this to the band in Star Wars
prefers the cover to the smooth jazz version of the theme.
