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!
