Falling Slowly.

Picture it LA Oscar telecast 2008,
 I am sitting at home laughing at John Stewart's jokes and loving the fashion. Then the music awards start, I usually hate this part they usually are terrible droning songs, but suddenly a cute girl and a rather handsome ginger start to sing along with an guitar and piano. Magic happens in my head. 

(Couldn't find the original version)

This a fabulous I think, Who are these people I wonder? Finally after googling and the fact that they went on to win the Oscar for best song I find out who they are, Glen Hansard and Marketa Irgova (also known as Swell Season) from the movie Once and the song is Falling Slowly.

 I quickly download the song (yes I'm shameless) and become obsessed with it. A year later a lightbulb lights in my little head saying "Why don't you have Netflix?" Long story short I rented Once finally, and loved the movie as much as the song and fell in love with more music from them.  

Modern time: They have a new album coming out in October and they were on NPR today preforming some of it. If you don't fall in love with them..well sorry you are missing out.
