Music Monday

I haven’t had a chance to see The Hunger Games yet due to a weekend of work (though tonight’s the night), but I did have time to download the soundtrack off iTunes. Seeing so many well-known artists who didn’t exactly fit the soundtrack I had created in my head for the novel had me a little hesitant, but the Taylor Swift and Civil Wars single “Safe And Sound” had already surprised me in its ability to capture the feel of the story. I think the songs that make up this compilation really capture the essence of the narrative, managing to be both vulnerable and pulse-pounding, while remaining earthy and subtle in its mostly folk-rock sound.
