Taylor Swift will sing Safe and Sound while Jennifer Lawrence runs through The Hunger Games
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
One little bit of news I missed a couple of days ago was Taylor Swift releasing her song ‘Safe and Sound’ from THE HUNGER GAMES soundtrack. Although fans of the book get upset when I say/write this, THE HUNGER GAMES feels more and more like THE TWILIGHT SAGA with each new marketing strategy, topped off with a forgettable song from a popular teen superstar. But fans of Taylor Swift will undoubtedly run out and download the song (which you can listen to below) since it sounds very reminiscent of some of her biggest hits. Swift is just one artist performing on the soundtrack, which is actually being handled mainly by T. Bone Burnett
The Gary Ross directed film will star Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz and Donald Sutherland. THE HUNGER GAMES is set to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
