"Game of Thrones" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" are wildly different HBO shows, but both possess theme songs so iconic they've taken on lives of their own. The epic, sweeping "Thrones" theme has been covered on keytar, bagpipes, and gayageum by heavy metal bands, smooth jazz artists, and Weird Al Yankovic. But the "Curb" theme may be the enduring meme of the Trump era: that bumbling, circus-esque tuba offers accompaniment to every awkward, awful moment. Which HBO theme song is the best?⚔️  👴🏻

Indiewire called the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" theme song the fifth best piece of television music of the 21st century. The song is called "Frolic" and was written by Italian composer Luciano Michelini, and Larry David heard it in a bank commercial and was immediately taken with its "circus-y" quality.

"Frolic" was actually first written in the 1970s, when it appeared in the Italian film “La Bellissima Estate.” The jaunty tune is a bit absurd, a perfect way to illustrate what embarrassing predicament Larry has gotten himself into on the show. In recent years, viral videos – dubbed “The Frolic Effect” – has also added the song to countless real-life cringeworthy moments, such as when Chris Christie stood behind Donald Trump at a podium.

The "Curb" theme music goes well with certain "GoT" moments—just ask Sansa.

Bernie Sanders, Chris Christie, and Jon Snow have all gotten the tuba treatment to hilarious effect.

And it goes with EVERYTHING these days.

But the covers of the "GoT" theme are also so epic! From South Park and Weird Al to Chvrches and some random goats, there's a rendition of this stirring song for everyone.

There's even a special Peter Dinklage tribute version!

Just hearing it makes you feel like you are sipping on dream wine, wielding a Valerian sword, and clad in a killer boiled-leather-and-fur ensemble while riding a dragon into battle.
