So I am eagerly awaiting the release of "The Hunger Games" movie and this song is one of many on the soundtrack and I am by far SO in love with this song. I'm not a huge Taylor Swift fan but I enjoy her voice in this song. It's not her usual love song or break up song. It also includes The Civil Wars who I LOVE.
It's so beautiful and I can just imagine it playing in the background as Katniss is in the arena, in the Game and after she sees her home, District 12 in ruins around her. At what used to be. Ack!It gives me chills. I feel kind of silly but at the same time I don't really care. It's been a good 2 or 3 years since I've read a book (in general) but one that has left me with anticipation and left me feeling raw emotion. I'm sad that I'm reading the final book. I don't want them to be over with.
Anyway. If you haven't yet heard this song, here it is. Also, I included the other songs that will be on the soundtrack in case anyone wants to go check those out too. There's a great choice of bands on this one! :) Enjoy!
And May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor.
