“Abraham’s Daughter” by Arcade Fire for the Hunger Games soundtrack.
How do you write a battle song for a movie/novel about children being forced to kill each other in an outdoor arena? You take an old Civil War battle march, let Winn Butler arrange a creepy rock track, and have a children’s choir sing it.

“ — That is the Organa girl, the senator’s daughter. If the gods lived inside vessels of flesh & bone, Athena would inhabit hers. Modern Idealist & Fierce Realist; her words alone could wear down the strongest competitor. Passionate & angry — but the holder of hope, with the drive to see it come to fruition. Like a Queen; she was born to lead. Like a soldier, she leads by example. ”
