So Taylor Swift may not have nabbed the Grammy for Best Country Album, but she’s scored another huge win already this year.
And no, we don’t mean those other two trophies she took home for her hit “Mean.” We’re talking about another song of hers—”Safe & Sound”—which is the first single of the hotly anticipated Hunger Games companion soundtrack.
Well, now there’s a HG-inspired music video to accompany it! So tell us, is T.Swift the perfect tribute?

We love the video! But we love anything Games-related, so we might be a bit biased.
The video is a moody clip featuring Tay wandering through the woods in a simple white gown. And it features the Civil Wars, who you may now know from their brief opening act to Taylor’s performance at last night’s Grammys.
The musicians teamed up for this song but both also have separate songs on the album—The Hunger Games: Sounds from District 12 and Beyond. Tay’s other original tune is called “Eyes Wide Open” and the Civil Wars have “Kingdom Come.”
Other artists included on the album are Miranda Lambert, Kid Cudi and Arcade Fire. Eat your heart out, Twilight soundtrack lovers!

But this song—as well as the others on the soundtrack—is inspired by, but not necessarily included, in the flick, which means our hopes of hearing “Safe & Sound” playing during Rue’s makeshift funeral scene is probably not gonna happen.
A beautiful opportunity lost, but we’re sure we’ll sob the same amount none the less.
Which just makes us even more thankful we have this music video as a sort of substitute. Now we want all you Jabberyjays and Tributes and Capitol wannabes to weigh in too—let us know what you think of the video, the soundtrack and all things Hunger Games!
We’re off to go wander the woods and sing pretty songs too, but we’ll be back later to check in!
