‘Catching Fire’ Soundtrack: We Match The Songs To The Scenes

With the official soundtrack out, we take it upon ourselves to score the 'Hunger Games' sequel.

The “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” soundtrack dropped Tuesday (November 19) — a few days before the release of the film later this week. If you’re anything like us over at MTV News, you have likely listened to the 15 songs on repeat, playing a mental version of the upcoming flick in your head, sobbing and snuffling and preparing for the ensuing depression that dark film will inspire. But have you, dear readers, actually attempted to match tunes to scenes? Lucky for you, we’re two steps ahead.

Yes, the long-awaited sequel to the first “Hunger Games” film is almost finally here — a flick that finds heroine Katniss and would-be paramour Peeta free from the Arena, but thrown straight into the fire. The nation of Panem is sizzling with rebellion and they are the cause, having defied the government by breaking the rules of the Hunger Games when they refused to kill each other in the Arena. Bad things, inevitably, ensue.

In preparation for that parade of bad-/sadness, MTV News has broken down the film’s soundtrack, matching each song to a pivotal scene in the book version of the series.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
