Without giving away too many spoilers about what happens next, we decided to amp ourselves up for the movie by making a list of the 10 Pop Songs that Remind Us Of Katniss Everdeen.

“Do What U Want”-Lady Gaga (feat. R. Kelly)

When Katniss Everdeen is forced to compete in the Hunger Games, she has to go through a rigorous training on her body. But no matter what they do to Katniss physically, no one can break her amazing inner spirit. Just like Lady Gaga sings, “You can’t have my heart and you won’t use my mind, but do what you want with my body.”

“Roar”-Katy Perry

In the first Hunger Games, Katniss is just a 16-year-old girl who comes from an impoverished District of Panem. But she goes from being just some girl to being one of the strongest victors of the Hunger Games and an incredibly courageous young woman.

“Pompeii”-Bastille

While Katniss’ world came crumbling around her, like Pompeii, she was forced to make a decision between representing the common people or “the rubble” or winning for the sake of winning (“the sins”). In the end, Katniss chooses to win with integrity, winning over the hearts of the people of Panem.

“Royals”-Lorde

Despite becoming battle royalty after winning the Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta are no king and queen. Their affection for each other was just a game on Katniss’ part and just like in the Lorde song, the brave young woman will never be a “royal” according to superficial societal standards, although she has the personal stature of a true queen.

“Safe and Sound”-Capital Cities

Katniss became the “luck” for her people, instilling in them hope and teaching them that they can be “safe and sound.”

“Wake Me Up”-AVICII

During the Hunger Games, Katniss has to deal with a multitude of obstacles. She had to “feel her way through the darkness” and make adult decisions even though they told her she was “too young to understand.” Fortunately for Katniss, she stayed wide awake throughout everything and never, ever lost her way.

“Burn”-Ellie Goulding

The perfect song for the the girl on fire, “Burn” from Ellie Goulding perfectly sums up that pivotal moment in the first movie where Peeta grabs Katniss’ hands and makes the crowd go crazy: When the light’s turning down, they don’t know what they heard/Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world/We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky/’Cause we got the fire, fire, fire/Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire.”

“Applause”-Lady Gaga

“I stand here waiting for you to bang the gong/To crash the critic saying, “Is it right or is it wrong?” Katniss literally lives thanks to the “applause” of those watching. Without the support of the people of Panem, Katniss wouldn’t have been able to survive.

“Don’t You Worry Child”-Swedish House Mafia

Like the hero she is, Katniss replaces her 12-year-old sister Primrose in the games, basically giving her sister the message “don’t you worry child.”

“Diamonds”-Rihanna

Beautiful like a “diamond in the sky,” Katniss is a special, unbreakable gem who is able to sustain even the hardest pressure and shine even brighter than before.
