Have you seen Taylor Swift's new video, "Safe & Sound"? It's from her "Hunger Games" companion album. Honestly, it gave me chills; what a beautifully haunting song.

Oh! Thanks for posting this! I've been waiting to see the finished video. I really like this new song from Taylor. The first scene in the video when she is walking through the woods really looked like what I pictured the arena looking like.

I found it interesting how the article says her dress and hair at the Grammy awards was similar to that of someone living in district 12. Seems like she's really into the books/movie. I can't wait to see the movie next month!

The song has such a haunted feel to it. I kept picturing a mockingjay - and specifically the notes Katniss & Rue were to call to each other - when they were singing the "Ooos."

I didn't see what she wore when she performed at the Grammy's- I'll have to look it up.

I think this is the outfit they're referring to:

Kinda crazy to me that they focused on her outfit for the performance rather than the performance itself. The song is awesome, addressing bullying and the costume was a visual part of the song message.

Exactly! And when she found the Mockingjay pin

I totally agree, Lucy. It wouldn't have been the same if she had performed that song in her full-on glamour mode. It's kind of ironic that so many people are making snide comments about what she was wearing and completely missing the point of the song.
