Mockingjay – Hanging Tree

| August 26, 2010 | 13 Comments More

The fans of the Hunger Games series never cease to amaze me.  The Mockingjay has only been out three days and already it’s touched people in inexplicable ways.  In Part I, Katniss sings again – this time a song her father taught her when she was just seven years old.  The Hanging Tree is sad and confusing, but it’s perfect for what she’s experiencing as she faces a new life in the midst of rebellion.

Here’s a fantastic version created by alt323.

Let us know what you think.
