Hunger Games fans are counting down the days for the premiere of “Catching Fire,” the second of three parts in an adventurous and memorable series that is sure to get hearts racing and emotions running high.
To get them even more excited and prepared for the event of the premiere on Nov. 22, the soundtrack list was recently released on the last week of September.
Featuring well-known artists like Christina Aguilera, Coldplay and Patti Smith, the track list also includes talented artists including The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Imagine Dragons, Lorde, Ellie Goulding, Santigold and the National. This unique mix of headliners and slightly less heard of artists and groups is bound to create a perfect soundtrack that fits the suspenseful yet inspiring plot.
Looking back at the first movie, “The Hunger Games,” the movie itself didn’t feature many sounds from the soundtrack, if any at all. However, the soundtrack accurately portrayed the overall mood of the books and the movie in a rather unforgettable way. From Arcade Fire to Taylor Swift to Kid Cudi to The Civil Wars, the mixture of intense, alternative tracks with more rustic and heartfelt guitar-plucking songs depicted the main story dead on, from the stomach-lurching moments to the moments that brought tears to the audience’s eyes and tugged at their hearts.
With the unveiled artists featured in the “Catching Fire” soundtrack, the sequel to “The Hunger Games,” seems like it will achieve the same thing as the first one, if not surpass it. A wide variety of genres and artists is sure to please the audience and get them ready and in the mindset for Nov. 22 when “Catching Fire” is released.
