Vikings theme

Vikings follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok the greatest hero of his age. The series tells the sagas of Ragnar's band of Viking brothers and his family, as he rises to become King of the Viking tribes. As well as being a fearless warrior, Ragnar embodies the Norse traditions of devotion to the gods, legend has it that he was a direct descendant of Odin, the god of war and warriors. (source:

The theme is dark and mysterious and fits the series very very well.

Fever Ray - If I had a heart

Spotify playlists for tv-series 3

TV themes soundtracks
If you're looking for a tune from a tv series, current or from way back when..there's a big chance you'll find it here.
TV Themes Soundtracks by Becky Ballantine

The 8th season just started. With lots of classic rock you know or might not know yet. I didn't know Blue Öyster Cult until about 4-5 years back when I heard a song of theirs in Supernatural. Best discovery ever.
There are various people with playlists of Supernatural out there, but this list had the most at the moment of subscribing :)
Supernatural by Kyle Healeas

Not really sure about the music in Community, but then again, if you don't notice music all that much, it's a sign that they're good picks.
Community Soundtrack by Robin Rodgers

If you haven't seen season 1 of this, go watch it right now. Check out music that fits the series.
Jazz music inspired by Homeland by Paul Dahill

Mad Men
A great series that I should really start watching again.

"Utopia will follow a group of people who find themselves in possession of a manuscript of a cult graphic novel. The tome is rumoured to have predicted the worst disasters of the last century and the group soon find themselves targeted by a shadowy organisation known only as The Network." (from IMDB)

This has to be one of the weirdest tv series I've seen in a while and brilliant because of it. The music creates a big part of the creepy, strange and hunted feeling you get while watching it. I never heard of Cristobal Tapia de Veer,  but I will definately check his backlog of music and keep an ear out for this guy.

The theme (extended I think):

This is a playlist he linked on his website with all kinds of versions, snippets and
tracks from the soundtrack worth checking out:

James Bond - Skyfall

Instead of looking at the whole soundtrack, I'll just post 3 versions of Skyfall that I really like, of course including Adele's version. Not in any particular order except for the order in which I heard them.

Adele - Skyfall

Josie Charlwood - Skyfall
Brilliant singer from England, check out her facebookpage for more of her music!

Marjoram - Skyfall
Local (Groningen, The Netherlands) talent!

Spotify playlists for tv-series

I've come across some pretty long spotify playlists for different tv-series.
I've put the usernames in brackets to give credit where it's due. But if you find yourself here and don't want your name (or your playlist) linked, just let me know in the comments and I'll remove either one.

Music from Treme (user:
I'm currently watching Treme and it's opening a whole new world of music to me.

Lost OST (user:
Going to re-watch Lost soon, eerie creepy music a plenty.

Skins Series 1-6 (user: Anna Belsey)
Never watched Skins, but you've got to admire the work that has been put in to get 576 (currently) tracks together. I found the 200 for The Wire already quite a task.

Breaking Bad (my own, but I copied several playlists from others into one)
Awesome tv series with some real gems of music (for instance Bang data - Bang data).

Sons of Anarchy (user: Michael Gegerfelt)
Awesome tv-series.

If you've got a tv-series playlist that I should check (and or share) just let me know!
