The Hunger Games Songs from District 12 and Beyond [2012]

This film a Gary Ross‘ upcoming adaptation of The Hunger Games, the first novel in Suzanne Collins’ original trilogy, which features a new image of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), shooting her bow and arrow in profile.
The Hunger Games follows Katniss and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), two tributes from District 12 living in the futuristic world of Panem who are forced to enter the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death competition between young representatives of each of the 12 districts.

Katniss’ advantage in the Games is her skill with a bow and arrow (as emphasized in the poster), which she honed while illegally hunting for food for survival with her friend Gale (Liam Hemsworth).

Lionsgate announced a few weeks ago that The Hunger Games would be given a limited, one-week run in IMAX theaters, starting March 23rd, 2012.
The original songs from a variety of folk, country, indie-rock and hip-hop acts, inspired by the film adaption of Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games novel, are anything but upbeat and happy. They run the gamut of emotions from melancholy (Taylor Swift‘s “Safe and Sound”) to desperation (Miranda Lambert ft. Pistol Annie‘s “Run Daddy Run“) and everything in-between.

Might you've seen the video clip Safe and Sound of Taylor for so long but I find out that the covers are more interesting. And here you are some covers song, one is from Megan Nicole and Tiffany Alvord.

One more from the always loving singer Kina Grannis.

 And why you not try out this song sung by Julia Sheer.

[Taylor Swift]
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

Just close your eyes

The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Don't you dare look out your window darling

Everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music's gone

Just close your eyes

The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Just close your eyes

You'll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound...
