Say what you want about young adult book-to-film adaptations, but the large majority of them do come with quality soundtracks.  The Twilight Saga made a point of it, Vampire Academy even has a song selection well worth checking out and The Hunger Games franchise is no different.  For the first Hunger Games film, it was all about Taylor Swift’s “Safe & Sound,” then Catching Fire got Coldplay’s “Atlas” and now The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat.”

Both “Safe & Sound” and “Atlas” are solid songs and right in line with the Hunger Games tone, but neither ever snagged a spot on a personal playlist.  “Yellow Flicker Beat,” however, just did.  Hit the jump to check out the very first single from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack.  The film stars Jennifer, Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam HemsworthWoody Harrelson,  Julianne MoorePhilip Seymour HoffmanElizabeth BanksNatalie DormerSam Claflin, Jena Malone and Donald Sutherland, and is due to hit theaters on November 21st.
