Safe and Sound

There are three things I'm currently obsessed with. Taylor Swift is, of course, one of them. The other two you may not know about: The Civil Wars and The Hunger Games trilogy. Seriously, if you've never listened to The Civil Wars, do it. And if you've never read The Hunger Games, do it. You'll thank me for both.

Back in December, I was thrilled when Taylor announced that she was collaborating with The Civil Wars on a new song. (Holla!) Adding to the excitment, the song was going to be for the first movie adaptation of my new favorite book series! And finally, yesterday, (only one day after she brought home two new Grammy awards) she released the video for one of the best songs she's ever done. Prepare to see and hear Taylor like never before. Behold!

What do you think? I absolutely love it. I have to be honest, though, when I first heard they were collaborating, I had a couple doubts of how well Taylor could keep up with the haunting melodies of The Civil Wars, but her voice in this song is more beautiful than ever. And visually, the video matches the tone and feel of the book series perfectly. This gives me high hopes for the film's approach to the material, as well.

Taylor meets The Civil Wars meets The Hunger Games? Yes, please!

After I finish reading my book club book this week, I'm gonna start The Hunger Games series! I want to read the first one before seeing the movie, at least. I really like "Safe and Sound" - I'm excited about this soundtrack, I gotta say. Did you hear that The Secret Sisters (who went to FHU) have a song on there, too??? I think it's called "Tomorrow Will Be Kinder," which they wrote after the AL tornadoes last year. I have a feeling this soundtrack will be a huge boost to their career. =)
