Note-able: The Hanging Tree, sung by Jennifer Lawrence

Note-able is my very, very irregular post in which I talk about songs, musicians, bands, concerts…in other words, any music that I find special or worthy to be discussed.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s kind of obsessed with this song, right? I’ve read the books, you’ve read the books, we’ve read the lyrics to this song, probably more than once (at least in my case). They are haunting and creepy and maybe give you the chills (again, at least in my case). You might’ve even imagined what the song sounded like, how the melody went. But nothing prepared us for Jennifer Lawrence singing it in the first installment of Mockingjay. Her voice isn’t perfect. I doubt I’d buy her CD if she came out with one. But her voice is soulful and gave life to this song in a way it never really got in the book. I got chills in the movie theater, sitting there listening to her sing this song and watch those people march. Every time I listen to it now, I get those chills again. I can’t stop singing, “Are you, are you coming to the tree?”

Alright, you’re probably tired of me blabbing on and on about it. If you haven’t heard the song, listen to it below, and then tell me what you think in the comments!

New Mockingjay Part 1 Poster

Holy crap, you guys! Have you seen this poster? It is gorgeous and amazing and I really want this to be on my wall. The marketing for this movie is so ridiculously awesome. I’m super impressed with all of it, including both the first and second teaser trailers – which I kind of fangirled over on the blog. When I saw this new poster today I just kind of stared at it for a second. I know it’s not super complex or necessarily deep or anything, but I love it. So yeah, that’s it. I just wanted to share it with you guys. 🙂 Mockingjay Part 1 hits theaters on November 21!
