Hunger Games Song

If you guys haven't heard this newly-released song premiered for the upcoming Hunger Games movie then you need to. It's haunting and beautiful. I can't wait to see what scene it corresponds with. It's a partnership between Taylor Swift whom I love and The Civil Wars. I first came across The Civil Wars with their song Barton Hollow and listened to their song Poison and Wine while rewriting a scene in my WIP. They're absolutely fantastic and coupled with Taylor Swift are able to create a unique sound and a song that's full of emotion--aching and honest.

While I would have loved to see more sneak peaks from the movie I do like the simplicity and color scheme used in the video. It's simple so that you can focus on the song, as that's the main star here:

So what do you think? Do you like the song? Are you the kind of person to go out and get your favorite book turned movie soundtracks?


  1. I love this song. It's just really haunting. I think the video does a good job of being it's own thing as well as tied to the movie. I like that balance.

  2. Holy crap. I think the only thing that made the song more haunting to me was this video.... ::shivers and tearing up::
