Hunger Game Music And Parodies


Who's excited about The Hunger Games? Me! Me!
Also, my best friend Jocey. She thinks that March 23rd is much too far away and that she might have to re-read the series again before then. I totally can't blame her, because I was thinking about doing the exact same thing.

In the mean time, I though I would help tie us over with some parodies, musical or otherwise. Just keep in mind that if you haven't read the books yet, they might be a bit spoily.

First off we have Holly Laurent with a parody song of Lana Del Ray's Video Games. 


I do seem to love the parodies of this song. They're just fantastic. Not to mention extremely clever.


This next one is based on the Bruno Mars song Grenade.


TIME TO GO
GRAB MY BOW
12 IS WHERE I LIVE (COAL)

GAYLES HERE

KILL A DEER
SELL IT AT THE HOB

DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS TROUBLE

IN THE OTHER DISTRICTS
LIFE WAS ALMOST EASY
BEFORE THE REAPING

EFFIE READ THE NAME IT WAS

PRIMROSE EVERDEEN
PRIMROSE EVERDEEN, SHE READ
NO WAY MY LITTLE SISTER
WILL EVER BE A TRIBUTE
PRIM, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE SCARED

CAUSE I'LL PLAY THE HUNGER GAMES FOR YA

I'LL TAKE TRACKER JACKER STINGS FOR YA
SHOW PANEM HOW MUCH I LOVE PEETA
I'LL FOOL SENECA CRANE FOR YA
I WOULD GO THROUGH ALL THIS PAIN
I WOULD EVEN BE THE MOCKING JAY
YES I WOULD DIE FOR YOU PRIM
IN THE HUNGER GAMES

CAP CAP CAPITOL

PEOPLE HERE ARE DUMB
NO ONES NOTICED PRESIDENT SNOW
SMELLS LIKE HE'S BEEN DRINKING BLOOD.

SOUND CANNON, LOUD CANNON

ONE MORE PERSON GONE
NOW IF ONLY THE CAREERS
WOULD SHARE THE CORNUCOPIA

SINGING FOR RUE'S DEATH

IS WHAT SAVED MY LIFE FROM THRESH
OH IT SAVED MY LIFE FROM THRESH YES IT DID
WE THOUGHT TWO COULD SURVIVE
HAD TO THREATEN SUICIDE
BECAUSE THE GAMEMAKERS LIED

YA I'LL PLAY THE HUNGER GAMES FOR YA

KILL MUTTATIONS THEY CREATE FOR YA
SHOW PANEM HOW MUCH I LOVE PEETA
TRY NOT TO DIE IN THE ARENA
I'LL EAT LAMB STEW IN THE RAIN

YES I WOULD DIE FOR YOU PRIM

I love it!! It's just written so cleverly!


Lastly, but not least is a hilarious take on what might have happened when Gale came to say goodbye to Katniss by The Second City. He's just trying to help... right?
 
 
I want you so bad... to focus on hating the Capital... Booo Capital...
 
 Poor Gale, stuck in the friend zone forever. Well, whatever, it's not like anyone can compete with the boy with the bread. At least not to me anyway. 
Well, maybe Finnick. Is it just me or does he remind anyone else of Aquaman?


Sorry, I guess I'm skipping ahead a book.

There are a lot of great parodies out there as well as a lot of really bad ones as well, but the one thing they do have in common is that they all really love The Hunger Games.

Thanks to The Mary Sue for the videos and Rat Girl Studios, Mary-Chan, and Bleunite for the amazing fan art.
