Just for fun...Books and Music

Sometimes we come across a song that just screams a book or a piece of a book or a piece of the song.

This song has hit me for a book... First, I'm not a huge fan of the song.  Gorgeous voice, yes.  But the song just seems so simple to me.  However!  It does seem to fit a Young Adult book.  I'm sure you know it.  Catching Fire.  The second book in the Hunger Games series.

I can very easily see Katniss coming out on fire in the parade to this song.  In her chariot and all the sight.  The description of the 'girl' in the song seems to fit Katniss as the image that she is becoming here as well.

It is a great song although a bit weird with the video, but I like everything Alicia does. She is so feisty and talented!

You know whenever I hear this song I always think of Katniss as well! It always seemed like such a perfect song for that exact scene. :-)

I like the song, but I do not love it. I haven't read the book, but I did watched the movie and I agree. It does fits! :)

Thank you Silverlight. :D Some days I wonder if it's just me or if they do relate. Glad to hear you see it too. :)

Hi Nina, I'm not a huge fan of the song either. Glad you can see the relation between it and the character though. :) Thank you.
