    Most looking forward to hearing Deep in the Meadow, because there are SO many fan renditions of it, and I want to hear what Suzanne was thinking when she wrote it. 

  • Pehpeh

    deep in the meadow performed by jennifer lawrence AND WILLOW SHIELDSncant wait 

  • Team Hunger Games!

    Well I guess that now we know that Safe and Sound isn’t the Rue scene. I think this only leaves part of the cave scenes, then. Or at least I think that the cave part will have more than one scene…?

    • Peeta

      I think Safe and Sound is in the Bread scene.

    • Bleh.d:

       Safe and Sound was played during the credits.

  • Guest

    Not related to this post, but I had an idea… can we all go to google right now and type in ‘The hunger games’ at least 3 times? No reason, really, I just thought it would be cool to have ‘The Hunger Games’ come up first when you type in ‘The’, as apposed to ‘The Weather Network’!

  • Peeta

    Do u guys know who MARISSA is?

    • Firewriter15

      Belive it or not but I think Marissa may be Foxface, because I watched a video by WhitneyLeeMilam on YouTube and she had gotten ahold of the original script-not the one they used for the movie, a scraped one- and Foxface was named Marissa but, everyone called hwer Foxface. Heres the video.

      • Gary Gaston

        Nope.  Like the person above said, “Marissa Flashback” is a track from the Chemical Brothers score for the movie Hanna 

    • Renshensgens

      Marissa is one of the main characters in the movie called hanna where this is from so

    DEEP IN THE MEADOW!  When Katniss sings this to Rue, I’m going to need a box of tissue! 

    Deep in the meadow, under the willow
    A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
    Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
    And when again they open, the sun will rise.
    Here it’s safe, here it’s warm
    Here the daisies guard you from every harm
    Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
    Here is the place where I love you.

    Which song goes like this?
    “When I saw her in Big Kitchen had to take a second look,
    I said I love you baby and you sure know how to cook
    But it’s time for me to show you what it’s all about
    It ain’t personal baby, but I gotta take you out
    ‘Cuz it’s the Hungry Game!”

  • Soryane13

    I can’t wait to hear The meadow song with J.Lawrence and W.Shields vocals… i bet all HG’ fans will be tearing up and sniffing at the end of the song^^

    for Safe & Sound tune, i think will hear it in the cave scenes (when they’re stuck by rain) or  it would be when the games’ end and the overcraft comes to take them (in slow motion).

  • Hailee

    im a huge fan cant wait for the lullaby sung by jennifer lawrence but moat of these sings arent on the soundtrack cause u can pre order it online

  • Adamfreddy

    Safe & Sound is gonna be in the credits.

  • Cloeyhammond

    I think safe and sound is gonna be in the cave scene because it says “just close your eyes the sun is going down” that’s when she leaves the cave after drugging peeta to go get the medison.

  • Larissa

    Without You by David Guetta should be in the movie! The lyrics are PERFECT!

    I can’t win, I can’t reign
    I will never win this game
    Without you, without you
    I am lost, I am vain
    I will never be the same
    Without you, without you I won’t run, I won’t fly
    I will never make it by
    Without you, without you
    I can’t rest, I can’t fight
    All I need is you and I
    Without you, Without you
    Oh, oh, oh!
    You! You! You!
    Without You!
    You! You! Without you Can’t erase, so I’ll take blame
    But I can’t accept that we’re estranged
    Without you, without you
    I can’t quit now, this can’t be right
    I can’t take one more sleepless night
    Without you, without you I won’t soar, I won’t climb
    If you’re not here, I’m paralyzed
    Without you, without you
    I can’t look, I’m so blind
    I lost my heart, I lost my mind
    Without you, without you
    Oh, oh, oh!
    You! You! You!
    Without You!
    You! You! Without you I am lost, I am vain
    I will never be the same
    Without you, without you
    Without you

    • Bob

      Dude unless ur kiding you got to be stupid. this movie is about depression and loss not d. getta

    • Feathers

      That is like poetry to me because I’ve never heard that song… and I’d say it’s poetry for The Hunger Games… but now I’m going to go and look up the song! 

    • Benett Holgerson

      yea the lyrics might fit but not the song -.-

  • Clark Reynolds

    this shoud be in one of the movies:

  • Music Lover

    This is exciting and awesome , I LOVE  Hypnotic Brass Ensemble!  I’ve been a  fan  for years! Congrats Guys

  • Lexi415

    I can’t wait for Deep in the Meadow. I already have all the songs on the soundtrack coming out in two days, and I have most of these. Except for “Horn of Plenty”, “Deep in the Meadow” and “Farewell” Please reply where I could find these 3 songs. ♥thanks

  • Feathers

    I confess- when I heard that a movie was coming out I compiled a soundtrack of my own for the book to compare it to the movie’s soundtrack. Granted, I was working with what music was already created at the time, but here it is in no particular order: 

    1.) Stadium Love, Metric
    2.)Bells of Freedom, Bon Jovi
    3.) Careful, Paramore
    4.) Gimme Sympathy, Metric
    5.) Believe, Rob Thomas
    6.) Clipping, Mutemath
    7.) Know Your Enemy, Green Day
    8.) Let the Flames Begin, Paramore
    9.) Odds, Mutemath
    10.) Resistance, Muse
    11.) Monster, Paramore
    12.) Iridescent, Linkin Park
    13.) Exo-Politics, Muse
    14.)Pressure, Paramore
    15.)Get Thru This, Art of Dying

    I know it’s unrealitsicly long, but there it is. Sadly, none of those songs made the cut. =( 

  • Bob

    Why do they not have the sound track above in a album when they put a funny album that has nothing to do with the movie together?

    • Maria

       Bob, thats what I’m wondering about. For instance, the first track we hear in the opening scene sets as Katniss theme, and it’s missing from the OST, I don’t understand why. Especially cause it was announced to be on it, and apparently it’s missing! well.. there is a link on youtube but wish it was on the album…

    • Feathers

      I am a bit peeved too about that, and I don’t think anyone who didn’t help compile the official soundtrack can answer that. 

  • Y0levey

    What is the name of the song when Caesar Flickerman is about to do the interviews and they are showing him off to the crowds with that bloody music that nobdy seems to bloody care about!!!!?????

    • Sigts

      “war” played by hypnotic brass ensemble

  • Gill

    What is the song that plays when katniss is in the training center getting her individual score????

  • Esserspace

    So, I guess I have to make my own soundtrack?
    I have all of the OMPS, but that is majorly lacking. I will add these above in which will tricky. I don’t relly know where they go. 
     I believe there are other songs that are part of the “Soundtrack” (being the Taylor Swift one -which has some really great songs, btw), done with no lyrics- I understand the part playing during credits is the non lyric version of Kingdom Come(maybe)- anybody know where I can get that?! Something during the credits made me want the soundtrack..I can’t seem to find that part…

  • eachy

    what is the song RIGHT at the end of the movie when the credits start rolling? we had to leave the theatre really quickly and i couldnt catch the name of the song! please help! 

    • Feathers

      Esserspace said below this posting that one song playing during the credits may be a non-lyric version of Kingdom Come… Taking a second listen, I think they might be right. Listen for yourself: 

    • Amethyst

      Abraham’s daughter by arcade fire

  • Eugene Yen

    guys whats the music when Peeta rubs their medeson against Katniss’ head?

  • Jane_MCR

    This is absolutely nuts, but when I was reading the trilogy, I was listening to The Hanna Soundtrack– one of the best albums by The Chemical Brothers. It fit the novels so perfectly, I seriously alone could have been the soundtrack. Every song fit at the right moment, every moment the right song.

    I was absolutely in TEARS when I heard Marissa Flashback in this movie. I knew the album so well, my mouth dropped and I was totally in hysterics. My mom asked me what this all meant; “That I should study film score. I’d be very excellent at that…” (:
    Although I saw this last month, I am still in complete shock from it. Not so much that it was such a good song for it, but just the thought that these people literally took what I had set my reading to and put it in the movie.
    Made my day, I tell you. Made my day. ♥

  • Cindy Hendriks

    Does somebody know which song is played during the journals the tributes get to see? During the games once in a while they get a update of which tributes died, somebody knows?

  • Cindy Hendriks

    Oh nvm I’ve already found it;) : Horn of plenty

  • AKR

    You forgot girl on fire by arshad

  • Katniss

    How come the soundtrack has only songs with words when Youtube has things like backround music like rue’s whistle or the hunger games anthem

  • Jocy Quiroz

    who now the song that come out at the end of the movie?

  • Benett Holgerson

    huh! they used a song from the amazing movie “Hanna” in this. its actually really suiting. lol

  • dyris

    What is the song playing when Katniss and Peeta are at the Cornucopia in the end and they are about to eat the nightlock berries?

  • Jazmine♥♡♥

    I wish I could meet Jennifer Lawrence:(

  • Holly

    i love safe and sound
