‘Horn of Plenty’ - Panem’s National Anthem
composed by Arcade Fire
Written by Win Butler & Régine Chassagne of Arcade Fire. Win: “We were interested in making music that would be more integral in the movie, just as a mental exercise. And there’s an anthem that runs throughout the books, the national anthem of the fascist Capitol. So as a thought experiment, we tried to write what that might sound like. It’s like the Capitol’s idea of itself, basically. It’s not a pop song or anything – more of an anthem that could be playing at a big sporting event like the Games. So we did a structure for that, and then James Newton Howard made a movie-score version of it that happens in several places in the film.”
I think they’ve gone for epic. Yep, definitely epic. Epic.
