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!

For international fans, here’s an excerpt of the transcript :

“I just appreciate that we had such horrible working conditions,” the Wars’ Joy Williams joked to MTV News on the 2012 Grammys red carpet. “We were in a heated cabin. She, being the prima donna that she is, was out barefoot, in freezing weather, in the mud and still managed to have a really good attitude about it.”

Bandmate John Paul White added with a laugh: “We figured it was the least that she could do, since we wrote the song. ‘I’m the biggest star in the world,’ ” he joked about the humble pop songstress.

The Barton Hollow singers admit they initially weren’t sure about working with another artist on the track, but that after it was suggested to them, it just felt right. “It was [perfect], strangely enough. John Paul and I write all of our own music, so it’s not as common anymore for us to be collaborating with other people,” Williams said. “But, [producer] T-Bone [Burnett] and Taylor Swift: It was just natural.”
