The Hunger Games Movie Poster


My favorite thing working for this site is the ability to talk to all The Hunger Games fans. I love asking all the fan questions on here, Facebook, and Twitter. So given that here is my fan question of the week. I posted it on Twitter earlier so now I will post it here.

If you could have any song on The Hunger Games soundtrack what it be? You can list one song or your whole playlist. This is just for The Hunger Games book/film. I will ask about Catching Fire and Mockingjay at a later date. I cannot wait to hear your responses. Also since I ask you for your recommendations I will give you mine. <3 Summer

    Entering the Capitol scene:

    “Limelight” by Apparat

  2. Katniss says:

    “Battlefield” by Jordan Sparks

  3. Kayla says:

    Gifts and Curses – Yellowcard

    The song’s style doesn’t really fit the mood of the story, but here’s the refrain – it sounds like words that Peeta would be thinking.

    “I see your face with every punch I take,
    and every bone I break, it’s all for you.
    And my worst pains are words I cannot say,
    Still I will always fight on for you.”

  4. Jojo says:

    RISE AGAINST ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Nicholas says:

    Change by Taylor Swift, listen to the WHOLE song fits the Trilogy very well.

  6. laya says:

    “Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato

  7. Sara says:

    Listomania- Phoenix
    Bixby Canyon Bridge- Death Cab for Cutie
    Whatever Gets You Through Today- The Radio
    Passenger Seat- Death Cab for Cutie
    The Fear You Wont Fall- Joshua Radin
    Evil- Interpol

    These are all on a CD that I made specifically with The Hunger Games in mind, and the general feel of all the songs, especially in the order listed, is much like the feeling you get reading the chapters of the book in their order.

  8. Jabber jays says:

    Resistance by Muse for katniss and peeta its really just perfect

  9. RebeccaB. says:

    I Will Not Bow — Breaking Benjamin

    Catalyst — Linkin Park

    Prayer of the Refugee — Rise Against

    Run Through the Jungle — CCR (Don’t ask why, reminds me of Katniss running through the arena.)

    Cry Little Sister — G Tom Mac (Kind of like a Rue/Prim/Katniss thing to me. Because of Rue’s younger sister and Katniss taking Prim’s place in the Games, Prim is crying.)

    We Want War — These New Puritans (I can just imagine by the beat of those drums in the begining showing every tribute’s face then the mockingjay begins burning once the beating’s over with “Let The Games Begin” after.)

  10. RebeccaB. says:

    I meant Rue’s younger siblings not sister.

  11. Emma says:

    I love the songs Summer chose, they really seem to fit! (And I already liked them anyways) 😉 Oh! And I thinks lots of the songs from “Flyleaf” would do well in almost any of the movie scenes for the Hunger Games. ….DEFINITELY.

  12. Emma says:

    And maybe throw in some “Barlow Girl”. Specifically “Million Voices”. Maybe, maybe. ….. And by the way, I absolutely LOVED the music used for the second part of the trailor. It was completely perfect in my opinion. :) I know I’m not alone!

  13. Hunger GAmes Crazy says:

    :) I dunno. I think lots of that dramtic music would fit but I realy like

    😉 Set fire to the rain-Adele

    😀 The song just fits! Like here is a bit:
    But there is a side to you that I never knew, never knew
    and all the things you say, they were never true, never true
    In the games, you play, you would always win, always win
    But I set fire to the rain
    And I threw us into the flames
    where I felt something die, Cause I knew that
    that was the last time

  14. Taylor says:

    Catalyst- Linking Park
    Flowers for a Ghost- I don’t remember
    In the end- Linkin Park
    this is war- 30 / mars

  15. Catnip says:

    The best hunger games song i’ve heard so far is definitely “The Game” by Alyssia Reid, I’m pretty sure she made that song for HG. and also, a parody song called “I wanna Go – Hunger Games” really funny AND true.

    Check this out, guys!

  16. Justice says:

    I made like, twelve different soundtracks for The Hunger Games based things. Here are some of the songs I used:
    “Far Away” by Nickelback
    “Fix You” by Coldplay
    “Screaming Bloody Murder” by Sum 41
    “One Day Too Late” by Skillet
    “World So Cold” by Three Days Grace
    “Famous Last Words” by My Chemical Romance
    “Behind Closed Doors” by Rise Against
    “Monster You Made” by Pop Evil
    So yeah, I didn’t want to attack you with a mauling of songs. Those are just some of the ones I think fit the series in general.

  17. Some Random says:

    “In the End” by Linkin Park.

    “I tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it didn’t even matter”

    I think it works.

  18. canuslunar says:

    what about Rue’s Lullaby? Will that be in the soundtrack?

  19. Randi says:

    1. Weight of the World by Framing Hanley

  20. Randi says:

  21. Jason says:

    Dashboard Confessional- Stolen
    I think it would be perfect for hunger games and catching fire.

    Stadium Love – Metric
    “Every living thing

    No one’s getting out
    Without stadium love”

    Hurricane by 30 Seconds To Mars is a good one. I can also recommend Letters From The Sky by Civil Twilight.

  34. Olivia says:

    “Set Fire To The Rain” by Adele. Seems like a Hunger Games/Katniss type song…? :)

  35. Ellie says:

    Change- Taylor Swift

    “Battlefield” Jordan Sparks
    For the Katniss-Peeta-Gale LOVE triangle!

    I heard a lot of great songs for this movie/series. Here are my top 3. Without You- David Guetta : ” I will never win this game without you” “I can’t take one more sleepless night without you” “I wanna run, I wanna fly, I will never make it by without you” (Katniss and Peeta)
    2. Fly- Nicki Minaj : ” I came to win, to fight , to conquer, to thrive, I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise, to fly” (Katniss)
    3. Change- Taylor Swift: ” These walls that they put up to hold us back fell down its a revolution, the time will come for us to finally win”

  38. Delly says:

    THE CALL BY REGINA SPEKTOR IS PERFECT!!! When she hops onto the train

  39. hillary says:

    Set fire to the rain – Adele.

  40. Amber says:

    I hesistate to say it, because I don’t want to contribute to comparing THG to Twilight… but- in my mind, the entire “Resistance” album by Muse is the soundtrack to the Hunger Games. The album is based on the book 1984 which I will gladly compare to THG. Check it out if you haven’t listened to it!

  41. Sharlotte says:

    Sitting Down Here – Lene Marlin (for when Katniss is hiding from the careers in the beginning)
    If I Die Young – the Band Perry (for Rue’s death)

  42. (Shh! It's a secret!) says:

    “Monster” by Skillet
    It describes the violence and darker side of the tributes perfectly.

  43. Melissa says:

    Human – Killers (minus the dancer part)
    When Your Gone- Avril Lavigne

  44. Madz says:

    Change- Taylor Swift
    That one Muse song, you know what I mean
    In The End- Linkin Park
    What I’ve Done- Linkin Park
    Bring Me To Life- Evanessence
    Eye Of The Tiger
    My Happy Ending- Avril Lavine (just parts of it)

  45. Deena says:

    Farewell – Rhianna .. i think its perfect for Katniss and Gale when she leaves District 12 to go into the Hunger Games . And some parts I think are perfect for Peeta <3 :]

  46. Sarah says:

    without you by david guetta

  47. PeetaMallark says:

    Entertainment — Rise Against
    Set Fire to the Rain — Adele
    Iridescent — Linkin Park
    Safe and Sound — Taylor Swift (yes, I know it’s on the actual one)
    Young — Hollywood Undead
    Never Say Never — The Fray
    So Long — Magnetic North

  48. Peanut Butter says:

    I think of Blackbird by The Beatles like when Prim dies cuz like it says blackbird singing in the dead of night take the broken wings and learn to fly…..when she is helping the kids after the bomb parachutes

  49. Rinaldo says:

    Knights of cydonia – Muse (for Catching fire trailer)

    Blood on my hands – The Used
    This is war – 30 Seconds to mars
    Uprising – Muse
    Oblivion – 30 Seconds to mars
    Iridescent – Linkin Park

  50. Eyes Open – Taylor Swift
    Safe And Sound- Taylor Swift
    Girl On Fire – Arsad
    Abrhams Daughter – ????

    thats all i know

    • btw the Girl On Fire is like “Just one kiss and i would be hooked to her fire . her flames are surrounding me . you can ignight ,stand and fight not cave in so let the games begain. cause this love is not a game to me . we’ll survive we’ll start and uprising” …. it sounds like something peeta would sing
