As I danced around the kitchen to Taio Cruz, La Roux, Muse, and Lady Gaga, it occurred to me (having just read Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (and having just written a post about having just read Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins)) that Uprising, by Muse, was really the perfect theme song for the books. The words are:
The paranoia is in bloom, the PR Transmissions will resume They'll try to push drugs Keep us all dumbed down and hope that We will never see the truth around Another promise, another scene, another Package not to keep us trapped in greed With all the green belts wrapped around our minds And endless red tape to keep the truth confined They will not force us They will stop degrading us They will not control us We will be victorious Interchanging mind control Come let the revolution take its toll if you could Flick the switch and open your third eye, you'd see that We should never be afraid to die (So come on!) Rise up and take the power back, it's time that The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that Their time is coming to an end We have to unify and watch our flag ascend They will not force us They will stop degrading us They will not control us We will be victorious
The book centers around a revolution of sorts, but I won't go into detail. It is worth reading. But whether you read it or not, the song is fantastic. And the video is weird.

Come to think of it, a lot of the music by Muse has similar themes. If and when they make a Hunger Games movie, they should use something by Muse.
