File Under “Superfan”: A Hunger Games Playlist

by Samantha Vincenty

Like many people, I am beside myself over The Hunger Games movie. When I first saw the trailer I felt the sort of excitement that Harry Potter fans have known for years. Do you think they’ll build a Panem Park in Orlando right next to the The Wizarding World? I hope they make it super realistic, with a dome where you have to fight for weapons and dodge swarms of hybrid killer bees. I should start teaching myself to wield a trident just to be ready.

As a superfan and obsessive playlist-maker, I had to make my own Hunger Games playlist. The mix is in anticipation of the movie but since I haven’t seen it yet,  it’s more about the books. Plenty of woodsy hunter-y animal imagery abounds. It’s very literal! Sue me!
