A weekly feature hosted by GReads! where we showcase some good tunes! :)
This week I’ve selected another Oscar nominated movie soundtrack: Once.
Not only is this international indie movie full of emotions so palpable, it also has two very talented leads, Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová. I don’t think the movie would be the same without them. Aside from the movie Once, Glen and Markéta also go by the name The Swell Season.
Falling Slowly – a.k.a. This song that started my love affair with this soundtrack. It is beyond moving. Which is what makes a song perfect to me.
Say It To Me Now – The emotion that pours out of Glen’s heart when he sings this song rips my own heart open.
When Your Mind’s Made Up – This is the last pick I decided to showcase from this amazing soundtrack. I just love it. Like all the others. :)
