If you’re like me, you’re unreasonably excited about the upcoming Hunger Games movie. The soundtrack was recently revealed, and I’m happy to see some favorite artists on the list, including:
- Neko Case “Nothing To Remember”
- The Decemberists “One Engine”
- Glen Hansard “Take The Heartland”
It looks like the overall vibe is folk with an edge, which I think is perfect. (Frankly, I wish Neko Case could write the whole album; her sound matches the books perfectly.) Even though I don’t listen to much Taylor Swift, I actually like her song for the movie. You can see the video here:
Not as bouncy as a lot of her hits, and it has a nice mountain feel. So I’m very hopeful going into the movie. Any artists you like/dislike on the soundtrack, or anyone you wish were on the list?

I am so excited for this film to come out! Eeee!
Me too!!! So close now.
Wow, what a haunting song. I like it. I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to a movie soundtrack before this one; love the Decemberists and Glen Hansard!
I’m excited for the movie along with it, but I just finished the series and I’m not sure I want to see the third movie when it comes out ;/ #debating
Man, I don’t know what I’m going to do when the last movie comes out. Sometimes I’ll remember one death in particular and stop and whimper. Seeing that on screen would be intense.
I think the universe was shielding me from the knowledge that Glen Hansard was on the soundtrack in order to brace itself for the squeal that I just made.
