The song list from TheHunger Games soundtrack has finally been released, and it's got the perfectmelancholy-yet-edgy vibe.
The most-talked about song from the movie, of course, isTaylor Swift and The Civil War's Safe andSound, which features the eerily-inappropriate lyrics, "Just closeyour eyes, the sun is going down. You'll be alright, no one can hurt you know.Come morning light, you and I'll be safe and sound." The song sounds likesomething Katniss would have sung to Rue in the arena. I'm getting all tearyjust thinking about it.
