Who Will Save You Now by Les Friction always reminds me of Jon Snow's end in DOD and the highly probable outcome in the sixth book

The Me in Me by Watt White reminds me of Arya's trials with the Faceless men

Into The Shadows By Cyrus Reynolds reminds me of Bloodraven

Waters Will Rise By Ryan Hanifl reminds me of the Ironborn Incursion

“Lyin’ Eyes” by The Eagles for Cersei (except substitute Lion Eyes)

…So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who's feelin' down
But he knows where she's goin' as she's leavin'
She is headed for the cheatin' side of town

You can't hide your lyin' eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you'd realize
There ain't no way to hide your lyin eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting
with fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating
'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel…

 

“Hungry Like the Wolf” by Duran Duran for Bran

…In touch with the ground
I'm on a hunt down after you
Smell like I sound I'm lost in a crowd.
And I'm hungry like the wolf.
Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I'm on a hunt down after you.
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I'm hungry like the wolf…

 

“Wind Beneath my Wings” by Bette Midler for Dany and Khal Drogo

…Did you ever know that you're my hero,
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
For you are the wind beneath my wings.

 

“King of the Mountain” by Midnight Oil has elements of several storylines: snake = Oberyn, “waiting for the stranger to go” = death, “bad storm coming” = winter is coming, rain in the valley = Alyssa’s tears, “you can say you’re Peter” = some secret we don’t know yet about Petyr Baelish, “I can’t take the hands from my face” = Quaithe, “I will follow you” = Brienne, blacksmith, mountain, shadow, light, ghost, cobblestone alleyways (= Oldtown), wilderness = beyond the wall.

Walking through the high dry grass
Pushing my way through slow
Yellow belly black snake
Sleeping on a red rock
Waiting for the stranger to go

Sugar train stops at the crossing
Cane cockies cursing below
Bad storm coming
Better run to the top of the mountain

Mountain in the shadow of light
Rain in the valley below
Mountain in the shadow of light
Rain in the valley
Well you can say you're Peter, say you're Paul
Don't put me up on your bedroom wall
Call me king of the mountain

Blacksmith fires up the bellows
Cane cutters burning the load
Workers of the world
Run to the top of the mountain

Mountain in the shadow of light...

I can't take the hands from my face
There are some things we can't replace

Mountain...

Over liquid tarmac wastelands of cactus and heat
Down cobblestone alleyways of washing day sheets
Up ghost prairie mountains of sunset and space
Down the road a familiar face
Across the wilderness
Out further than the bush
I will follow you

Has this been mentioned already???

I always thought of this song by Stacey Q whenever the song Two hearts that beat as one came up in the story. Can't you just imagine Tom O'Sevens singing this to Gendry and Arya while at the Peach? :kiss:

Not sure if someone said this already, I haven't been through all the replies but

Broken Crown by Mumford & Sons

It could apply to multiple characters, mostly Starks such as Ned, Robb and Jon. 
However lots of Mumford & Sons songs remind me of ASOIAF and it's characters.)

Believe (Davos, Stannis, Sansa, basically any character that isn't sure of what they believe or who they are.)
Hopeless Wanderer (Arya, The Hound, Tyrion, any character that feels hopeless, or that they don't belong, and wanders.)
Little Lion Man (Tyrion, basically the perfect song for him. Could apply to Jaime as well.)
Winter Winds (Jon, Sam, Robb, characters in the North who struggle with love and the circumstances like Jon and Sam being in the Night's Watch and loving wildlings and Robb being already betrothed to another woman.)
Liar (Theon, Tyrion, characters who are seen as cowards and liars.)
Lovers Eyes (Jon, Sam, Robb, same as Winter Winds basically. Characters who are in love and struggle with it.)
Sigh No More (Cersei & Jaime, Jon & Ygritte, couples whose love brings out the best in each others lives.)
Timshel (Jon & Sam, Bran & Meera, strong friendships.)

 

Sigh No More by Shakespeare is for Lysa. 

How about Kill the King by Rainbow for Denys Darklyn?

No Son of Mine from Genesis to describe Tyrion and Tywin relantionship

 

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say

He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You're no son, you're no son of mine
You're no son, you're no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
and you're no son, no son of mine

oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You're no son, you're no son of mine
but where should I go,
and what should I do
you're no son, you're no son of mine
but I came here for help, oh I came here for you
