Friday Musical Interlude, straight from Ireland – 2/1/08

Posted: Category: Life as I Know It 3 Comments

First of all…. Happy February!

I must admit, when my mother told me to check out the movie “Once” for it’s music I was SO not ready for what I found. I am really blown away! Glen Hansard is a brilliant song writer and performer and his passion is incredible. Glen (born Dublin, Ireland, 21 April 1970) is the vocalist and guitarist for Irish rock group The Frames. Hansard quit school at age 13 to begin busking on local Dublin streets. He first came to widespread public attention as guitar player Outspan Foster in the Alan Parker film The Commitments.

The first clip I went to was this..

“Say it To Me Now” from Once

WOW… that was AMAZING!

and this actually gave me a lump in my throat..

Song For Someone

and this one is a little shaky but their voices work so well together.

Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova “Falling Slowly”

He reminds me of Damien Rice + Neil young + Cat Stevens and it’s brilliant.

Now I have to watch the damn movie! :-)

okay… Thanks mom, good pick!

  • you do have to see the movie…the music makes even more of impact because it is so seamlessly and perfectly integrated into the movie. They just don’t suddenly start singing the middle of nowhere and go prancing down the street.
