The Hunger Games Fan Made Music, Movies & More  

100 Days of Mockingjay Week 6

We're entering the SIXTH week of our 100 Days of Mockingjay celebration. It has been so much fun to focus on different segments of this incredible fandom each week, to hear your stories, and to understand what The Hunger Games means to you guys. This week we're going to focus on more of your fan-made creations, namely fan music, fan films, and audio dramas.

Did you know there's a group of super-passionate fans who adapted all 3 Hunger Games books into audio dramas? If you haven't discovered The Katniss Chronicles yet, you're in for a treat.

Have you ever heard any fan made Hunger Games music? One tribute wrote gorgeous scores for all three books before the films came out. We'll introduce you to his music plus some of the other amazing fan made Hunger Games music and covers you may have missed. 

Did you realize how many fan made Hunger Games short films are out there? We'll spotlight some of our favorites. 

There are also some crazy talented amateur film editors in the fandom. As soon as a new trailer appears, one of you has re-edited it into something often more powerful than the original content.  We'll highlight some of those this week as well. 

As usual, with a new theme for the week comes a new giveaway. This week one winner will receive:

1 Limited Edition Skullcandy Mockingjay headset

1 Black Mockingjay pin

Enter the giveaway through the widget below. This giveaway runs from Wed, Sept 16 - Tues, Sept 22nd at 8pmET. The giveaway is open to international tributes.

Listening to The Hanging Tree always gives me the chills!

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterJordan

My favorite would probably be The Hanging Tree, Jennifer sang it so beautifully.

I also love safe and sound, we remain, atlas, who we are, yellow flicker beat and elastic heart😊😊😊

My favourite song is The Hanging Tree. I think the deeper meaning of the song is so beautiful and I think Suzanne wrote it perfectly! I also love Safe and Sound and We Remain :)

My fav is Yellow Flicker Beat - Lorde, Who We are - Imagine Dragons, and of course, The Hanging Tree :D

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDanny

Scream My Name is my all time favourite from all of them, hands down.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLorna

My favorite are The Hanging Tree, The Mockingjay and Rue's Farewell.

My favorite song for The Mockingjay its Warrior by Demi Lovato. I think this song can describe Katniss's life WITH Snow like, have a Part says "little girl grow up to fast" and " YOU Can't never hurt me again". I need this song in The soundtrack of Part 2

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAdriane

The Hanging Tree! Also I love the "Katniss and Peeta Love Theme" that JNH has been using throughout the movies! I love the way he has been building on it!

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAedyn Downey

The Hanging tree without a doubt, but I also love close open by Taylor Swift.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAnamar

The Hanging Tree is really good but I also love Yellow Flicker Beat and Safe and Sound

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterErika

My favorite song of the whole series will always be "We Remain". The sound's so touching and at least it always comes up with special memories rom the Catching Fire premiere in Berlin.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterStefanie

My favorites are 'Meltdown", "The Mockingjay" and of course Hanging Tree ;)

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterCéline

My favourite soundtrack from The Hunger Games is obviously Yellow Flicker Beat by Lorde and The Hanging tree!!!
It always gives me so much good energy and mood but there are so many feels in it. Aaah even when I!m thinking about it my heart starts beating harder.
And also, because I play the piano I can play all of The Hunger Games soundtracks haha!

The Hanging Tree is my favorite! It's just so haunting. The words that Suzanne wrote with Jennifer's haunting voice and James Newton Howard adding to it. It's so beautiful.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered Commentersarah

The Hanging Tree keeps giving me chills, god I love that song!

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLéonie

My favourite has to be The Hanging Tree by miles... love it so much

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterAmber

There is definitely no better song than "The Hanging tree"... It's beautiful and the way it's presented in the movie with Katniss singing on a beautiful scenery and then the attack on the Dam gives it a great contrast on the song's meaning.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel Dinotte

I made a version of "The Hanging Tree" and sang it in front of my little cousins. They loved it.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterC. Winchester

I love all of the scores but my favorite ones are "Searching For Peeta" from The Hunger Games, "Katniss Is Chosen" from Catching Fire and "The Hanging Tree" from Mockingjay Part 1. I can't wait to have the favorite one from Mockingjay Part 2!!!

As to Soundtrack I absolutely love Atlas, Abracham's Daughter, Devil May Cry and Come Away To The Water.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterLizzie

It's got to be the hanging tree

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterNicki

I love Horn of the Plenty in the first film. I also love the Hanging Tree.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterKelly Webb

My favorite song of the score is "They're back", incluyed in "the hunger games: Catching Fire original Music picture score" :3 <3

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterYazz

I litterally love most of the movie soundtracks songs.
The firts time i listened "safe and sound" i fell in love with all the music, and when the catching fire soundtrack artists list came out i was so excited because of christina and coldplay, and then the other songs were even more exciting and beautiful for me as the others (yeah, I´m talking of "silhouettes"). But then the mockingjay soundtrack appeared, at first I didn´t like it so much because i felt like it doesn´t fit with the movie, but then I give it a chance and now I can´t get it out of my head, specially "kingdom", "scream my name", "dead air", "all my love" and of course "yellow flicker beat"; those songs are pure art.

September 16, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterjosuergb

Have to say I love Safe and sound, + Eyes open, although the hanging tree is very creepy and suiting.
