David What do you all think of the Taylor Swift soundtrack song, for the upcoming Hunger Games movie, do you feel it fits with the story?

Personally love it, it's not really like the typical Taylor Swift track, and it really feels like she's put a lot of effort into it to make it fit.

For those who've not heard it yet, you can find it on youtube.com or spotify with a quick search. :)


Kerri I like the sound of it. It gives me chills.

I didn't like the music video, kind of a let down.


Jam(MHlover) I think its very lovely and it fits the Hunger Games well!
Whenever I hear it, I imagine Katniss singing this to Prim.


Vassi I do not like it, beautiful lyrics, but not the music...well, maybe after the movie I will feel different

love it!! so beautiful<3


Christina I love it. I agree with you that she worked very hard on it, to pull it off, it is not like any of her regular work. I think it is an eery kind of creepy theme to it, but it fits. I don't like that kind of music typically, but I like this one. The only thing is that it's kind of repetitive, and doesn't like change, so it's kind of long, but odds are they won't play the whole thing during the movie.


Jackie I liked it goes great with the song Katniss sings when Rue dies.


george ☽ it's really good, it just fits, you know? If there was one book/film that this song would go with, it'd be the hunger games. It's not like her other songs at all, it's better in my opinion. I love it!


Emerson Lankford <3 this song!


Jennifer Two great sounds combined: The Civil Wars and Taylor Swift.


Taylor (A Booky Wonderland) I love this song so much because it's different from what she usually writes and it really captures the whole meaning of the Hunger Games. Can't wait until March!

Taylor Swift and the Civil Wars are great alone but when you put them together...*sigh*. It's perfect harmony.
She made the song perfect for the HG. Katniss could sing this to Rue or to Prim, either one!
And the music video was pretty correct to the HG. I mean, not all that happy, but the HG isn't that. It's war. People die. Not everyone has a happy ending.


BubblesTheMonkey I like the song. Will they play it during Rue's part?

Sa-Human rights! I like the song.

YES YES YESSS!


*Lily's* I Like it, its so sad though, it makes me sad every time I hear it :( but that's why it goes with the books, the video could is been better, its all right though. I can't wait to hear the rest of the songs for the soundtrack


Tatiana I like the song, think it suits the feeling of the book.

I think this is when Katniss gives Peeta the special sleeping potion and then goes to get his medicine. I think it suits it because of the "Come morning light, you and I'll be safe and sound" part.

Suits it sooo well

Yazi I think this song would be perfect for when Peeta, and Katniss are on the train leaving for the capital.


David I almost died when i heard that Taylor was doing the Soundtrack. When i heard it i think i did die for a second. My heart stopped my breath slowed and i just basked in the eeriness of the song. I never would have chose a song like that for the Hunger Games, I was expecting something more upbeat and adventurous, But i am so glad that they chose a song like this.

Jayme I love his song! It's not usually what taylor swift sings but it fits the movie :) it's kind of like a lullaby


Jayme I mean this not his


Momznite I like this cover of Safe and Sound by a girl who is around the age of Katniss but seems more like a Prim.

Lily It's okay. I'll see how I feel about it after the movie comes out. I really don't like Taylor Swift.


Emily :'0 . Offensive. Jk. I LOVE her.

How about "One Engine" by: The Decemberists ?
It's also on the soundtrack, and it's completely different from "Safe and Sound," if you don't like Safe and Sound (I don't), u may like this song (I do) ...

Zoe I love this song!!!!! I think that it fits the books and will fit the movie perfect. I like Taylor Swift music, and this is totally different then her normal style, but in a really good way. But I also have a lot of friends who don't like it. I think it partially depends on the style of music you like though.

Me 2!
@Zoe I think you right, I don't like slow, I like more alternative/punk, more like the other one, but if you like the taylor swift kinda thing, then i guess the song is good ...


message 41: by Zoe (new) - rated it 5 stars

Zoe Well the thing is that it is soooo different from her other songs. It isn't like an original Taylor Swift song. That is what makes it so good.


Charlotte Abel Love it! Can't help but tear up whenever I hear it. ;-)
