Music Themes: Hunger

Bear  chose  this  weeks  theme  HUNGER.

Lorde  Yellow Flicker : Mockingjay  Part 1 Hunger games

What is  this came  true?

Years before the start of the series, the thirteen districts attempted to start a revolution against the Capitol. The Capitol won, District 13 was destroyed and, as punishment, an annual televised death match called The Hunger Games was created by the Capitol. Two participants, one male and one female, known as tributes, between the ages of 12 and 18 are chosen randomly in a “reaping” from each district. Children may volunteer as a tribute instead of selection by ballot. They are taken to an arena and fight until only one is left alive.[8]

Katniss Everdeen is a 16-year-old girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th Hunger Games after her 12-year-old sister Primrose Everdeen is picked for reaping. She survives the games along with Peeta Mellark when they both defy the Capitol by threatening to commit suicide.[8]

The Capitol is angry at their defiance, which inspires rebellion in several districts. Katniss and Peeta tour the districts, attempting to subdue the rebellion. Then, the reaping for the next Hunger Games takes place. For these games, part of the “Quarter Quell” that takes place every 25 years, winners of past games are forced to participate. When only a few participants remain in the games, including Katniss and Peeta, the arena is destroyed. Three of the tributes, including Katniss, are rescued by survivors of District 13, but the other three tributes, including Peeta, are captured by Capitol hovercrafts.[9]

The rebellion continues with Katniss being used as a figurehead.[10]     more info  here 

Elastic Heart: Catching Fire Sung  by Sia  

A Future  world vision.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Chandelier  by Sia.

A whole generation  hunger  for meaning  in their lives. They  want  a real reason to their  being. They don’t  see it  so  they  drink. They  get drunk  before  they go out  then  they act badly  then  they hunger  for  forgiveness to get away  from their shame… they do not get what  they want  so  they drink more!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then there is self inflicted hunger,  some starve  themselves  because  they  do not want  to grow up, because  they  are  or have been abused. So  many reasons  for anorexia . Song  from Maria Mena

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Charles Dickens  wrote  the story, Lionel Bart  wrote  the songs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A clever  song  from Marina  and  the Diamonds.  About  how  the  media  and fashion  world  wants  to sell the female  as a perfect (  just as relevant for males too) It depicts one girl  bucking  the system!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The  most reliant song  about  hunger  to this day. Band Aid. Do  they know its Christmas. 1984

    Interesting videas and theme Willow. It is true that we often explore the future with SciFi. It gives us the ability to see what may happen.

    Thank You.

    Nicely done Willow, Sia is one of my favorite songwriter/ lyricist. Band-Aid ’84 is still as relevant as ever. U’ve certainly captured hunger in your crosshairs! Have a beautiful weekend. 🙂

      Thanks Maddie I don’t know why I always seem to come at the themes from a different angle. My husband always tells me I think in an odd way. Big hugs to you. Xxx

    Greetings Willow.
    I was betting you would offer something from The Hunger Games and you did. 🙂 Highly appropriate. I avoided seeing that film until I learned what it was about. It’s so relevant to current issues that it’s a great mental horror film. At least I think so.
    Oh and as for Mariana and the Diamonds—Girls Don’t Fight Dirty? Since when? That’s a very interesting pick indeed. I like it.
    Thanks for adding to my musical menu.
