Taylor Swift “Safe & Sound”
If you had any doubts about the first single from The Hunger Games Soundtrack, “Safe & Sound,” this live version will make you a believer.
Taylor Swift played with Civil Wars on January 12th in Memphis. The crowd is dead-silent during the performance but for a premature explosion of applause. Compared to the nervous energy at most live shows, it’s an incredible feat and proves the power of the song.
Taylor Swift made a surprise guest appearance at January 12th show where The Civil Wars were performing. There they joined forces and performed the very first live version of Safe & Sound, which is featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack.
Check out the performance, and how great it sounds live in the video below:
Yesterday we all got to hear the amazing song “Safe and Sound” by Taylor Swift and the Civil Wars from the “Hunger Games” Soundtrack. Well, it turns out that two other bands have also collaborated with T Bone Burnett on the companion album.
2011 Grammy® Album of the Year winners Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire have written a song with Burnett entitled Horn Of Plenty, and critically acclaimed, Grammy® nominated band The Decemberists have contributed an original song, One Engine, both of which will appear on the album to be released in March.
“Horn of Plenty.” Huh. I wonder what that song could be about.
Any Decemberist or Arcade Fire fans excited by this new development? Also, based on the title, what do you think the song “One Engine” could be about?

UPDATE: It has been confirmed on Arcade Fire’s Twitter account that “Horn of Plenty” is actually an instrumental piece (not a song) and will appear in the movie.
