Well, for me it's the obvious, Pink Floyd's  "Another Brick in the Wall" whenever I'm reading about new recruits taking their oaths to the Night's Watch.  I always picture Edd yelling "Ye can't have any pudding 'till ye finish yer meat!"

ACDC's "Money Talks" when reading about Tywin Lannister.

Often, when reading about Barristan Selmy, I swear I hear "Protectors of the Earth" by Two Steps from Hell.

 

 

 

I like the Dolorous Edd referrence. How about Stealin' by Uriah Heep for Dareon?

I just realized that Burn from Deep Purple describes almost perfectly Melisandre

The sky is red, I don't understand
Past midnight I still see the land
People are sayin' the woman is damned
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand

The city's a blaze, the town's on fire
The woman's flames are reaching higher
We were fools, we called her liar
All I hear is, "burn!"

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm
She said, curse you all, you'll never learn
When I leave there's no return
The people laughed till she said, burn

Warning came, no one cared
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared
When it came no one was spared
Still I hear, "burn!"

Beautiful.

In Summer from Frozen makes my think of Rhaegar and Lyanna...

The hot and the cold are both so intense/Put 'em together it just makes sense

(I have a little girl.)

That line reminds me of that too. Basically half the songs in there remind me of ASOIAF in some way.  In Summer also makes me think of those poor Others who've never hung out on a Dornish beach.

I have a little girl too. :)

How about Black Sabbath's A Bit of Finger? 

Nah, at least not beyond the title. Sabbath's music is too ... upbeat...? for Theon.  Mad World is soooo mournful, and whenever I hear it I imagine Theon roaming the walls of Winterfell with a montage of memories playing in his mind, and song ends when he runs into someone (spearwife, Barbrey Dustin, the Hooded Man, etc.). But maybe that's just me...

From Wicked: 

“Defying Gravity”- Bloodraven and Bran

“No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” - Ned Stark

“The Wizard and Me” - Bran

“Popular” - Sansa or Margaery

“No One Mourns the Wicked” - the High Sparrow

From The Lion King:

“The Circle of Life” – The Weirwood Trees

“The Morning Report” – Varys the Whisperer

“Chow Down” – the Direwolves of House Stark

“I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” – Stannis or Renley

“Be Prepared” – Stannis

“Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” – Cersei and Jaime

Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper" for Rhaegar and Lysana; and 'Veteran of the Psychic Wars' for Theon in Winterfell.

Oingo Boingo's "Dead Man's Party" for Jon and Theon, when they're dreaming about the dead Starks/Winterfell Crypts.

Lost but won by Hans Zimmer sounds similar to the Rains of Castamere.

I Want To Hold Your Hand: Vargo Hoat to Jaime Lannister

 

We are all so old.

Ha!

Any bluegrass fans? How about Pretty Polly (my favorite version is by Ralph Stanley and Patty Loveless) for Chett?

I forgot the most obvious, from another thread.

Schoolhouse Rock's "Lolly's Lolly's Lolly's get your Adverbs Here" whenever I even see Lollys name.

Deftones, Change (In the House of Flies) – Jon Snow

I watched you change
Into a fly
I looked away
You were on fire

I watched a change in you
It's like you never had wings
Now, you feel so alive

I've watched you change

I took you home
Set you on the glass
I pulled off your wings
Then I laughed

I watched a change in you
It's like you never had wings
Now, you feel so alive
I've watched you change

It's like you never had wings

I look at the cross
Then I look away
Give you the gun
Blow me away

I watched a change in you
It's like you never had wings
Now, you feel so alive
I've watched you change

Now, you feel alive
You feel alive
You feel alive
I've watched you change

It's like you never had wings
