“Falling Slowly” – Once

Music and Lyrics: Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová

You will likely fall slowly under a spell as you listen to this entrancing song from the achingly beautiful film and musical Once.  Its warm, folksy melody will sweep you off your feet and steal your heart just as it did for the Irish musician and his Czech muse in this bittersweet tale of love.  Critics also fell in love for the song won Best Original Song at the 80th Academy Awards on this day in 2008, beating out strong competition (including three songs from Disney’s musical masterpiece, Enchanted).
