Spotify knows your kindred GoT character.Gone are the days of silly quizzes to reveal what Game of Thrones character you are. Now, there are fancy-pantsy scientific algorithms to show whether your kindred spirit is the fiery Daenerys, the witty Tyrion, or the still dead for now Jon Snow. Spotify developed a micro-site that analyzes your music preferences and then matches those to a character on the show. The A.V. Club writes:
As far afield as George R.R. Martin’s franchise can go, everyone can agree that this would be beyond the pale. Nevertheless, the official Game Of Thrones Spotify account has 31 free, streaming playlists, each one themed around a particular character. As Thrones prepares for its sixth season this weekend, this is a fun way for fans to reconnect with characters from the series’ pastHere are a few of the playlists you can get. For the record, I matched with Jaime Lannister which is kickass, but his taste in music is worse than sleeping with your sister.
If you are feeling like a young, blind, and multi-faced badass ready to destroy all those who've wronged you, you'll want to check out Arya Stark's playlist.
Casting spells and making bad prophecies your thing? Put on Melisandre's playlist to experience whatever it is the 'Lord of Light' is selling.
The most popular playlist belongs to Jon Snow. Slay mad White Walkers with everything from Billy Clyro's Scottish Rock to the Power Pop of Ok Go.
Ygritte's playlist gives you all the feels of a lover scorned. I mean "I Will Wait" by Mumford & Sons AND "Dreams" by the Cranberries? Eat your heart out.
You can check out what your character would be here. If you think Spotify has made a mistake on your match, you can click on the 'Game of Thrones' next to the 'Created by' under the character's picture. This will bring up all the characters' playlists for you to play. Cheers to Season 6!!! H/T spotify-gameofthrones.com, thenextweb.com, avclub.com
