Inspired by Sara and Jill's discussion of a picture being worth a thousand words, my challenge--for anyone who dares to accept it--is to choose a picture, any picture, and write exactly 1,000 words about it in the form of a story, poem, description--whatever. GO!

Yes, yes, I’m obsessed. It’s unhealthy. I know. That being said, I’m going to spread my obsession by talking about The Hunger Games even more! It’s list-making time. So in honor of the recent release of the official movie soundtrack, the following are my top 5 favorite Hunger Games related songs that aren’t affiliated with the movie. Here we go…
#5 Safe and Sound Pop-Punk cover by TeraBrite
Of course I love T-Swizzle, but TeraBrite’s take on this song brings a whole different feeling to the lyrics: a really hardcore, kick-butt kind of feeling. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9p7rRd4oTs
#4 Freedom in Panem by Alex Carpenter
The title track from Alex Carpenter’s Freedom in Panem album made the list because it not only has a catchy chorus, but also a pretty sweet video. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7JhBDfNNFE CAUTION: SPOILERS FOR CATCHING FIRE AND MOCKINGJAY in the video. If you haven't read them, just listen; don't watch!
#3 Burn by The Design
Hey, the lead singer may not wear pants, but that’s okay (well…) because this song will rock your pants off. Also, beware, it’ll be stuck in your head for hours and make you want to go out and start a rebellion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmm2tpf6rPo
#2 I Wanna Go (Hunger Games Parody) by WinterSpringPro
Okay, okay, I'm kidding. But I'm not. Just watch it and try to tell me it's not the funniest thing you've ever seen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoHfCW-O2yA
#1 Girl on Fire by Arshad
*melts in a puddle on the floor* Perfection! THIS. SONG. *melts again*
And after that glorious climax, here is the falling action: honorable mention! Surprisingly enough, there are a lot of songs about The Hunger Games. And a lot of them are really good. So my other two favorites, up for honorable mention (because top seven is not as cool as top five) are…
Real or Not Real by All Caps
LUUUUUUUUUUKE!!!!!!!…and it’s a good song. MORE SPOILERS...like completely...it's one big spoiler! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MC2iiRp0I8
Reaping Day by Alex Carpenter
The live version makes me smile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5PxacP7-is
***Okay, really they shouldn't, since some of them are about more than just the first book. But they're awesome!
Sometimes (approximately once a week) you feel like blogging. But what about those other times when you feel like writing a poem, drawing a picture, or making a list? Well, now that goes here!
