Believe it or not....I'm actually looking forward to The Hunger Games - Catching Fire.....and it's not even about Jennifer Lawrence being ridiculously gorgeous.....ok, maybe a little about that, :) BUT I did truly enjoy the first and very much eager for the 2nd. Mind you I'm not a book worm, so I don't know anything more of the story than what I've seen.
Anyway, with a movie of this magnitude, better bring some killer tunes to go with it.....I think they did.
Here's the tracklist......
» Of Monsters and Men - "Silhouettes"
» Sia (ft. The Weeknd & Diplo) - "Elastic Heart"
» The National - "Lean"
» Christina Aguilera - "We Remain"
» The Weeknd - "Devil May Cry"
» Imagine Dragons - "Who We Are"
» Lorde - "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
» Ellie Goulding - "Mirrors"
» Patti Smith - "Capital Letter"
» Santigold - "Shooting Arrows At The Sky"
» Mikky Ekko - "Place For Us"
» Phantogram - "Lights"
» Antony & The Johnsons - "Angel On Fire"
You may be familiar with Coldplay's contribution, 'Atlas', we've been playing it on Cities97. Here's the super cool lyric video....
Oake & Keri posted this a few days ago on their blog. Here is a live version of the Lumineers' song they lent to the Catching Fire project.
I think the two songs I'm most anxious to hear are Imagine Dragons' original they wrote for the movie, "Who We Are". Couldn't find this anywhere & then spoke to Dan Reynolds from the Dragons and found out.....yeah, it's not available anywhere. We'll just have to practice the ancient art of patience. :)
The other I'm stoked for is Lorde's cover of Tears For Fears, "Everybody Wants To Rule The World". The theme of that fits well with the movie and with what we already know of Lorde's abilities, VERY anxious to hear this.
You remember the song, right? If not, check this out. Instead of the video, here's a great scene from the movie "Real Genius" (You know, before Val Kilmer got really famous and kinda weird)........
