March 20, 2012 4:05AM ET. The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond. If you’re not already bitten by the Hunger Games bug, you may be unaware that District 12 is what’s left of Appalachia in the not-too-distant future, or that the games pit 24 teenagers in a battle to the death. But those details loom large over this surprisingly faithful collection of original songs. Here comes Taylor Swift, armed with nerf-metal guitars, advising our heroine to sleep with one eye open, and Neko Case turns the character’s transition from invisibility to fiery glory into a grandly swirling pop moment
Moody heroine Katniss Everdeen hails from coal-mining District 12, and there's a strong Appalachian bent to steely laments like the Punch Brothers' "Dark Days," the Civil Wars' "Kingdom Come," and honeyed lullabies such as Secret Sisters' "Tomorrow Will Be Kinder" and Neko Case's "Nothing to Remember.
Album The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond. Safe & Sound Lyrics. I remember tears streaming down your face When I said I'll never let you go When all those shadows almost killed your light I remember you said, "Don't leave me here alone" But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight. Inspired by the first Hunger Games movie, Safe & Sound is a lullaby sung by Katniss' character to her 12-year-old sister Prim. In the song, Katniss promises to protect her and keep them both safe, even though she knows she probably can’t. The haunting song was written by Swift and features the duo The Civil Wars with their signature intricate harmonies. The song is not in the movie soundtrack, but it was released on the album The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond, which is a compilation of songs that were inspired by the movie from various artists.
