The Hunger Games Movie Soundtrack

Updated on May 16, 2014

The Official Companion Album

I was busting at the seams in anticipation of The Hunger Games Movie. And with the new movie comes a new album, Songs From District 12 and Beyond.

First came the artist announcements followed by the first single. Then the track listing was announced via iTunes and the first official music video was released. There were a few changes along the way but now the album is finished and out! Pick up your copy today. :)

You can preview all 16 songs from The Hunger Games: Songs from District 12 and Beyond below. You'll notice I've also included some unofficial albums based on The Hunger Games trilogy.

Safe & Sound - Taylor Swift featuring The Civil Wars

Wow, "Safe & Sound", the first single from the Hunger Games Soundtrack, is haunting and beautiful. It has a very different sound for Taylor Swift, and it made me Google The Civil Wars. I think this is a wonderful collaboration. You can watch the official video here and download the song from iTunes.

Safe & Sound Lyrics

(Safe & Sound was written by Taylor Swift, Joy Williams, John Paul White, T-Bone Burnett)

I remember tears streaming down your face

When I said, "I'll never let you go"

When all those shadows almost killed your light

I remember you said, "Don't leave me here alone"

But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes

The sun is going down

You'll be alright

No one can hurt you now

Come morning light

You and I'll be safe and sound

Complete Lyrics can be found at Taylor Swift's Official Website

One Engine - The Decemberists
