We don't know what we were expecting, but whatever it was, it was NOT this.
And that's okay with us - because this sounds AWESOME!
Ch-ch-check out a full, one-minute preview of Taylor Swift's OTHER song on The Hunger Games soundtrack, called Eyes Open (above)!
While Safe & Sound was far more delicate and folk-influenced, this is HARD ROCKING AND RAW!
We're thinking end credits-worthy, don't U?
Can't wait to hear it in full!

There is a genre of bands that all have a similar sound - and we LOVE!
Foster The People, Kids Of 88, The Naked And Famous, M83, Empire Of The Sun, MGMT and more!
If you like those groups, then we think you're really gonna dig Capital Cities!
We can't stop listening to their song Safe & Sound!
Such an uplifting song that's sweet but still COOL!

This one is for all the kids who need a jam for the next reaping! Ha!
We love how Taylor Swift just has this way of making much so damn powerful. From her up-tempos to her ballads, she finds ways to connect with her music in a way that is so tangible and really speaks to everyone. That's why she's just the perfect choice to take the lead on The Hunger Games soundtrack and why we think this first single from the album is so fitting overall!
Check out the video (above) to watch Swifty's Safe & Sound music video, featuring The Civil Wars!
Beautiful! Kind of a haunting feeling to it. Eerie, but in an inviting way. We really like it!
