A few things we noticed: Willow Shields is credited as performing the Lullaby along with Jennifer Lawrence!  Also, most of these songs are not on the soundtrack album, the tracks of which have already been revealed. However, these songs will appear somewhere in the film (even if it is the credits) along with the film’s score from James Newton Howard.

How the ‘Safe & Sound’ video pays homage to ‘The Hunger Games’

Taylor Swift’s music video (which also features The Civil Wars) for “Safe and Sound” may not show any footage from The Hunger Games, but that doesn’t mean the video doesn’t respectfully reference the story. NextMovie has determined a few ways that the video gives proper credit to our favorite series.

The video starts in a house that looks an awful lot like the Everdeen home in District 12’s Seam. It’s broken and old and very modest, just like Katniss’ place. Oh, and there’s a fire going in the hearth — a very fitting little tribute to welcome “the girl who was on fire,” yes?

Taylor Swift’s simple dress in the “Safe and Sound” video makes her look all ready for the Reaping, too, and as she traipses around the barren woods until she comes upon game, she looks as though she’s trying to escape the hopelessness of the place. Those familiar with the woes of Panem might find the scene familiar. Eventually, the forest begins to go up in flames. So much for happy endings.

The Civil Wars gush about Taylor Swift, Hunger Games soundtrack artists, T Bone Burnett

Last night at the Grammy Awards, The Civil Wars talked with Billboard about their collaboration with Taylor Swift on the Hunger Games soundtrack, their involvement with T Bone Burnett, and the other excellent artists featured on the album. They also rave about Adele (who can blame them?). Check out the video below.

How did the ‘Hunger Games’ soundtrack artists fare at the Grammy Awards?

Now that the full Hunger Games soundtrack listing has been released, we’ve discovered that a number of the artists featured on the album were nominated last night for Grammy Awards, and several took home the statue!

Taylor Swift took home the award for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for “Mean,” but lost best country album to Lady Antebellum.

The Civil Wars won for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Folk Album for “Barton Hollow.”

Arcade Fire‘s “Scenes from the Suburbs” took the award for Best Recording Package.

Kid Cudi snagged Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “All of the Lights” with Kanye West, Rihanna & Fergie. The song also won Best Rap Song, but lost Song of the Year to Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.”

The Decemberists “Down By the Water” lost Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song to Foo Fighters’ “Walk.”

In addition, both Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars performed on stage during the awards ceremony! If we find a working video, we’ll put it here!
