Song of the Day #11 – The Swell Season

Today’s song is “Falling Slowly”, by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, who collectively perform as The Swell Season. This song was originally released by Hansard’s band, the Frames, but it really took off after appearing in the 2006 film Once. By the way, if you haven’t seen Once, head to your nearest video outlet, online or off, and treat yourself to a copy. You won’t be disappointed – it’s one of the few movies I had to see twice in a row, with a fantastic soundtrack to boot. The video below combines “Falling Slowly” with scene’s from Once.
