Here are the first two in case you forgot. 🙂
The tempo here stays pretty consistent with the mood of revolution and war. Until around song 13, when the entire book changes. At least for me. Probably for you as well. We all know what happens. So yeah *spoiler alert* for this entire playlist.
ALSO: Made some alterations to the Catching Fire list and added a few songs. I blame this entirely on So You Think You Can Dance for introducing me to the Turning Tables song by Adele. Then I started scouting up applicable Adele songs – and found some excellent Florence + The Machine tracks.
Here’s the last video:
Which some of you will note there are TWO of in this particular playlist. This breaks the cardinal rule of creating playlists – you should not have multiple songs by the same artists. Really though – should I be blamed if they make awesome and fitting songs? Don’t think so.
Katniss returns to District 12. Again. *Many of you will have noted a Neko Case song kicks off every playlist. Firstly because she’s awesome. Secondly because her haunting country-twang fits the coal-mining District 12 so aptly. Thirdly, she will be in town in early July and I will be there with bells on. That is all. 🙂
Peeta is revealed to be alive in the Capitol.
Katniss agrees to become the Mockingjay (really, does she have any either choice?)
Katniss participates in rebellion.
Peeta’s mind is hijacked by the Capitol. Attempted murder and angst ensues.
*This video is quite disturbing* But pretty in-line with The Hunger Games in a lot of ways. And this song echoes Katniss sentiments of being free from the Capitol.
Peeta makes slow recovery.
An apology from Katniss? We may never know…
Katniss starts military training.
Entering the Capitol and their trap laced streets.
Losing friends in battle.
On the steps of President Snow’s mansion.
What comes after.
What comes after.
Had to keep at least a few of them vague – I’m not trying to be super spoilery!
Putting these lists together has been one of the highlights of my week. Whether or not anyone else enjoys them or finds them useful, it’s been a fun talking point with Dan as he is introduced to the books. We’ve spent many car rides debating whose perspective the song is from and where it actually fits in the story (or if it fits at all). It was also nice to skim over the books again and re-acquaint myself with the story.
Hope this inspires you all to do the same – for the first, second or third time. 🙂
