Motion Picture Soundtracks are usually hit or miss for me. Hit being one or two songs you dislike, and miss being one or two songs you actually like; neither of which have original music. Then there are times you come across a soundtrack like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire where you have an arsenal of bands/artist(s) that are asked to write original music for the film. Coldplay, Of Monsters And Men, Ellie Golding, Lorde, Santigold, The National, don’t judge me for drooling over this list of all-stars.
Every song off the soundtrack is a hit, but Imagine Dragons’ “Who We Are” was the one that best illustrated the film. Powerful, catchy, kind of creepy and a fantastic chorus gets you excited for the film, which is why it deserves the credit. Here’s to another A-List of bands for MockingJay Part 1 & 2.
For Fans OF: The Hunger Games, Awolnation, The Killers
