Rains of Castamere Acoustic Piano Cover with Strings

"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground." - Cersei Lannister

God, I love this TV Series. I began reading the books right after the latest season ended two weeks back. It gives people more depth and detail in the stories which we have grown to love. Rains of Castamere, also known as "The Lannister Song" was heavily featured during iconic scenes throughout the hit series. It's tune brings forth a foreboding that something dreadful is about to happen. I am not going into any specific details.

Hope you enjoy my piano cover of this song!

"Hooked On A Feeling Piano Cover" from Guardians of the Galaxy

Hooked on A Feeling was first released in the year 1968 by Blue Swede. It's catchy pop tune died down throughout the years until when it was played again in movies such as Reservoir Dogs directed by Quentin Tarantino. After which, the song was not heard again until the trailer for "Guardians of the Galaxy" was played. It was featured predominantly throughout the trailer as a running gag which was played from Star Lord's (The main character played by Chris Pratt) music player.

Hope you guys enjoyed my Hooked On A Feeling Piano Cover! Guardians of the Galaxy will be released in theatres on August 1st this year. As a huge Marvel fan, I'm REALLY looking forward to this!

"Hope" Piano Cover - Xavier's Theme from X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Recently, I've been really fascinated about the beauty of how movie soundtracks can amplify a particular scene and deliver the emotion that a director intends to bring upon the audience. Most of the time, the strings are used and especially, the piano.

"Hope" was a song played during *SPOILERS* the scene where Professor Charles Xavier looked into the mind of Wolverine who came from the future. Upon entering his mind, he met his future self in an apocalyptic world filled with mutant hunting sentinels. The younger professor had given up on everything after the government sent countless mutants to fight in the war and with Mystique gone, he lost everything he ever loved.

"We need you to hope again...". This was the sentence that was said by the future Professor. I find this song really inspiring. Hope you readers out there enjoy the video as much as I had playing it!

In just two weeks, X-Men Days Of Future Past will finally be shown! I have been looking forward to watch this movie ever since they announced it last year. This song also goes by the name of "Surface Of The Sun" and "Adagio in D Minor".


 The trailer played and I immediately fell in love with the X-Men Days Of Future Past music song played. If you haven't checked out the trailer, here it is:

Here's my new cover of the famous song 'Let It Go' from the movie 'Frozen'! Only watched it a couple of weeks back, (don't judge!) cause I missed the movie screening back last year. Hope that you guys out there enjoy it!

Attack on Titan Piano Cover

Check out my new piano cover from the second opening of Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人) 自由の翼/Jiyuu no Tsubasa. Personally, I prefer this opening cover as compared to the first one. If you have not watched the anime before, I strongly recommend you to go take a look at it! Highly recommended!
