The 'Mockingjay, Part 2' Soundtrack Needs To Feature These 11 Songs
In strange movie news, the final Hunger Games film is gearing up to open theaters Nov. 20 and we're still without a blip of Mockingjay, Part 2 soundtrack info. Nada. Zilch. Zero. It's almost as bad as the long wait for Adele's new album (almost, but not quite as bad because Adele is a musical goddess and we are but her mere mortals). The Hunger Games has done pretty well for itself in terms of music choice and composition to match all the emotional highs and lows fans have felt throughout the previous movies. And, let's be real: once you have Lorde helping put together your tracks, you're pretty much only allowed do better from there.
Maybe it's the the pressure of not exceeding #LordeGoals that's keeping any Mockingjay, Part 2 soundtrack news under wraps? Or should we be gearing up for a surprise soundtrack drop of Beyoncé proportions? Either way, fans are currently still without new music to give us major dystopian and rebellion vibes, so I've come to fill the gap in your iTunes and Apple Music with some pretty dope recs and the lyrics to match, guaranteed to provide you eargasms while you await the film's release.
1. "On My Mind" — Ellie Goulding
It totally fits Katniss and Peeta's relationship.
2. "Figure 8" — FKA Twigs
It speaks to the life-or-death fragility that comes with fighting the good fight.
3. "Bad Blood" — Taylor Swift Ft. Kendrick Lamar
Basically the entire theme song for Mockingjay, TBH:
4. "Here" — Alessia Cara
Probably what all the characters in Mockingjay, Part 2 must have thought to themselves at one point or another.
5. "Half The World Away" — Aurora
It's fitting for Katniss' home town, District 12, and its destruction.
6. "Confident" — Demi Lovato
Katniss being a complete and total badass is represented well here.
7. "Adventure of a Lifetime" — Coldplay
It works with the legacy the Second Rebellion leaves, and the people who come out as its heroes.
8. "Bang My Head" — David Guetta Ft. Sia & Fetty Wap
The Mockingjay gang overcomes obstacles, even in the face of frustration.
9. "Coming Home" Sigma Ft. Rita Ora
This song understands the struggle of returning to daily life after the Hunger Games end for good.
10. "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" — Meghan Trainor Ft. John Legend
This one gets that even at the end of the rebellion, nothing is for certain concerning the future.
11. "Hello" — Adele
Last but not least, this is fitting the bittersweet epilogue.
Whether for the lyrics or the mood the music puts you in, these 11 songs would be great additions on the Mockingjay, Part 2 soundtrack. Or, you know — if one never comes out for some bizarre reason, you've got these sweet backup tunes to jam out to.
