Music Match Monday - The Hunger Games

I'm starting a new feature here on Astronomical Books and I'd love it if you'd participate.

Music Match Monday is a feature where on the first Monday of every month I match the lyrics of a song to a book and explain why they go together so perfectly. There are no set rules, just that you have fun and share your favourite matching music and books with others in whatever way you want.

You can link your own MMM posts on the linky feature at the bottom of each post to share with other participants. All I ask is that you credit Astronomical Books somewhere on your post so that others can trace the feature back here and take part in the fun.

Song: Part II by Paramore
Book: The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins

This song is the second part of another Paramore song, Let the Flames Begin, which also works with this series. In Let the Flames Begin Katniss is the 'tiny spark' that ignites the start of a revolution. The song is symbolic of the initial rage against Snow and the Capitol, fighting no matter what the cost may be.

Part II is the aftermath. It is when lives have been lost and all seems hopeless. The pair of songs work with any book or series that involves some form of opposition against the norm, and The Hunger Games has a huge conflict that reflects this beautifully. All that needed to be done was to let the spark of hope 'catch fire'.

As it's the first MMM, you might not be able to participate, but if you want to in the future, please comment and tell me if you like the feature so I know if I should continue with it.
