Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars’ Safe and Sound: The Hunger Games Is Totally Going To Make Me Cry, Isn’t It?


Taylor Swift’s song Safe and Sound for The Hunger Games soundtrack has been released and I have to say, I kind of love it!  Dare I say that this pairing of The Civil Wars (my new fave band) and Taylor really speaks to a growing maturity in Swift’s music?  Because I really feel like this sad and pretty song (I imagine that it’s Katniss singing to Prim, awww) is a perfect compliment to the more adult themes in The Hunger Games.


The Civil Wars accompany her on the Safe and Sound track and really elevate it…they performed recently at the Grammy’s and I think stole the show, man can these two sing.  This video maaay have made me cry when I watched it, I can’t stand how gorgeous their voices are.  Joy Williams with her adorable little rabbit teeth and John Paul White with his “Wait, is that Johnny Depp?” look just steal my heart.

The Hunger Games comes out on March 23rd, AH I can’t wait!  In the meantime, buy The Civil Wars’ album Barton Hollow and let their sweet harmonies fill your heart.
