Safe & Sound


        Safe & Sound
        Taylor Swift ft. The Civil Wars

I have to admit that i'm not the biggest Taylor Swift fan but i absolutely adore this song from the sondtrack of the upcoming film The Hunger Games. Her innocent and angelic voice intertwines perfectly with the magical guitar accompaniment. I think that i like this song much more than other tracks from Taylor because there is more depth to the meaning, as opposed to the lyrics being a teen diary entry (which isn't a bad thing as her lyrics are completely relatable) and the musical thought behind it seems much more complex. The interjection of echoes from the singers of The Civil War enhance the beauty of this piece and i just find it utterly compelling to listen to.

I must read The Hunger Games books asap. Does anyone know if they're a good read?

  5. Do read them! They're not the most eloquent and complex books out there, but they're a fun, fast read-- and maybe, just maybe, if you read them at the precise time, they might even make you cry!

  8. Good! I think you will really them, and they have lots of different genres which makes them really interesting. Exactly and instead of focusing on the good, they just look at the bad. Thanks for following me btw, it made my day:)

  9. Read them and read them now! You will not regret it. Dystopian paradise, if you will.

    T.Swift, not my fav, however I did enjoy her little dig to the haters at the Grammy's. The the Civil Wars, despite my annoyance at their name, they are amazing.

  10. I love Taylor Swift! And the clip is also hauntingly beautiful. The books ... they're addictive but only up to the second one. The third is a snore.

  11. READ THE HUNGER GAMES!!! yes, i am shouting at you as this is one of my fave series i've ever read. the last book is absolutely brutal and a tough read, but it's beautiful. i too am not a big fan of tswift, and was pretty disappointed to hear she would be on this soundtrack, but i like the song.

  12. its disappointing that I only heard this song on the credits. I thought they're going to play it IN the movie. on its emotional scenes. or maybe i just missed it.
