Song of the Day: "Safe and Sound"

Another Golden Globe nominee for Original Song, this one from Hunger Games. It's written by the 2 from The Civil Wars and T-Bone Burnett; it's performed by Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars.

The Civil Wars are hot right now; they won 2 Grammys last year and could easily pick up an Oscar nomination. I'm not sure if it's irony or poetic justice or something else that the 2 (Joy and John) are calling it quits. They can't stand each other anymore. She keeps stabbing him on stage or something, sounds pretty brutal. They're nominated for 2 Grammys for this song, so maybe they can split the awards: one of them gets the Grammys and Golden Globes, the other gets the Oscars (if nominated). They should settle that up soon since the Golden Globes happen 2 days before Oscar nominations are announced, so that person (let's say Joy, no wait, let's say John, it's easier for dudes, just need a tuxedo) gets the Golden Globes (don't even need a tux) and if they get an Oscar nomination he also goes to the Grammys, Joy goes to the Oscars; if they don't get an Oscar nomination, Joy goes to the Grammys. Either way she needs treatment for the stabbing--that's not healthy.
