Here’s my thoughts on the song. I don’t like it. I know, I know that is kind of harsh. But I cannot lie.  I love Lorde. I love the music in the song. And I love the darkness of it for The Hunger Games soundtrack. But I don’t really care for the song itself, the lyrics. Maybe it will grow on me once I hear it in contrast with the movie. We shall see.
Here’s a preview courtesy of the folks at Vevo. Tell me what you think. Do you like it?
