    This song makes me think of two scenes Rue dying with katniss by her side or katniss and peeta in the cave this song deserved first

  5. Hunger Games Crazy says:

    This is all I listened to all day. It is pure genius. Simply amazing. It makes me wanna cry! I can totally see it at the end!

  6. TEAM PEETA says:

    AHHH!!!! I really don’t like Taylor Swift but this song was AMAZING AND PERFECT!!! It was great and could relate to the love triangle and also the games in general. At first when I heard that Swift was on the cd I was upset, but now I have memorized the lyrics.THey should use this song for when Katniss is returning from the Games back to District 12. It would be perfect.

  7. Tyler Gordon says:

    VERY cool! I got a chance to actually listen to it today! Really good stuff! Not the sappy, Taylor Swift stuff that she normally puts out (sorry to any fans. Not trying to offend.) This just shows how quickly the Hunger Games fandom is growing and it will just continue. Really exicting! In less than 24 hours we were all able to get it to number 1!
