The Hunger Games Movie Soundtrack
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
One Engine - The Decemberists
'One Engine" is the second single from the soundtrack to The Hunger Games, Songs From District 12 and Beyond. What do you think? I'm not a fan of it, maybe it will grow on me.
