Right now, I am stalking The Hunger Games Songs from District 12 and Beyond. It is soooo good. I usually like soundtracks, but this one is a bit different. None of the (awesome) songs are in the movie. Fact: there was no music that had any lyrics in the actual film. But this, like many soundtracks, really captures the feel of the film and District 12 in particular. It's beautiful and haunting and kind of stripped down. I highly encourage everyone to take a listen or pick the album up.
- Both songs by The Civil Wars (they're so amazing it hurts)
- Daughter's Lament by The Carolina Chocolate Drops
- One Engine by The Decemberists (who I normally don't love)
- Abraham's Daughter by Arcade Fire (who I also don't normally love)
