Hunger Games fans will be able quickly identify that the track is about one of the film’s main characters, but the song still carries some significant emotional resonance even if you wouldn’t be able to point out Gale, Peeta or Katniss in a police lineup. “And there was a time / When I stood in line for love, for love, for love / But I let you go, oh, I let you go,” Lumineers lead singer Wesley Keith Schultz sings, a feeling that anyone who has ever yearned for a lost love can instantly relate to. Even those HG fans who are firmly on #TEAMPEETA can agree that the odds of this song becoming a big hit for The Lumineers are ever in their favor.
