Taylor Swift, ft. The Civil Wars, "Safe & Sound". (ht)

    This is apparently connected to The Hunger Games -- if not a part of the actual soundtrack, then on an "inspired by" album, or so the WSJ informed me yesterday. The producers, working with the Appalachian setting, were reaching for what Appalachian music might sound like in 300 years.

    I'm pretty sure you're right. It doesn't quite get that sound to me -- I imagine Appalachian music 300 years from now will sound a lot more like Appalachian music today than this quite does. But the Appalachian undertones do make the song.
