Hunger Games Soundtrack Goes Gold
The Hunger Games soundtrack called The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond has gone on to become equally successful as the film. It reached gold status according to the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) on April 27th, 2012. It has sold over 500,000 copies and is likely well on its way to go gold again. As to why we are learning this exciting news for Taylor Swift and rest of the singers, we are not sure. But it is another proof of success for Lionsgate to put on their books for the popular trilogy.
I am so happy for all of the stars, yet at the same time, I wonder how well the next one will do? The fans all adopted the soundtrack pretty early on and it seems like it will hard to compete with. I don’t see how they will be able to top it off and make another hit soundtrack so soon. While I cannot underestimate Lionsgate, I do wonder what direction they will take it. The first one had a lot of country music on it and it fitted it. But what about the next one? This leaves a whole lot of responsibility on their shoulders, which leaves them a whole new issue with the next one. However, at the same time I do think the movie will be the selling point for Catching Fire soundtrack.
Did you buy the soundtrack? I didn’t, but the music isn’t my cup of tea either. I am glad that the movie did so well. I really did not know how well the soundtrack would do since it is rare for many to do extremely well. But they once again prove the world what a great success the movie is and the music. It certainly helped to have a country megastar on it, yet I think fans for the actual trilogy were the ones who made it happen like this.
