Hollywoodnews.com: As if Gary Ross’s planned adaptation of “The Hunger Games” wasn’t already tween friendly already (and that appears to be the film’s target demographic), country pop sensation Taylor Swift revealed that she has recorded an original song for the movie … and then tweeted a link so people could hear it for free.

“Something I’ve been VERY excited about for a VERY long time is going to be happening VERY soon (and I’m not referring to Christmas),” Swift posted on her Twitter account, later adding: “And this is it, the big surprise… Go get it!”

The song, titled “Safe and Sound,” is a collaboration with The Civil Wars. With lyrics like this, it’s bound to connect with Swift and “Hunger Games” fans worldwide: “Just close your eyes / The sun is going down / You’ll be all right / No one can hurt you / In the morning light / You and I’ll be safe and sound.”

In fact, shortly after Swift revealed the track, #SafeAndSound started trending on Twitter. Instant success.

“The Hunger Games” will be in theaters on March 23. Swift’s song, meanwhile, can he heard right here!
