5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Movie Songs Ever March 5, 2008
And I'm not talking about instrumentals either, I'm talking about lyrical themes to movies that have to embody the movie, and really set the tone for it the movie. However, there is a rarer quality of a movie song, one that if you have not seen said movie, but you here the song first, and you love the song so much that you actually want to see the movie. That is what this song does. While watching these past Oscars they played the nominees for best movie song of the year, and I thought to myself, it all seems so fake. The song from "August Rush" completely missed the mark it was trying to achieve, and "Enchanted" with the exception of "So Close," sounded like typical Disney type fair.

However, then came, "Falling Slowly," a song from a widely unknown film, I was like, "Wow, this is really different, this is beautiful!" And it was all that and more, and the studio version only improved on these precious elements. It's a moving, gentle song that really touches your heart. And like I said, I liked the song so much, I now want to see the actual movie, "Once."

Overall, the surprise song of the year, and a feel-good story that these unknown musicians are finally getting the credit and recognition they deserve. Buy this song, and you won't be disappointed.

By the way, get this version, there's a longer version that was put out, and it's not as good, because the song seems a little bit too spontaneous and drawn out, and it also loses some of the elements that makes the soundtrack version so great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing love song March 6, 2010

I haven't seen this movie but stumbled across the song anyway. Beautifully written and performed. Open and honest lyrics set to a moving tune. Soft, lilting and haunting in a very good way. The musicians voices create an ethreal sound that can make even the cynical believe in love stories.

Great song. Heard it on a tv show. After several hours of trying to find it, realized it was from a movie. Had to buy it immediately after.

I admit that I hadn't hear of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova until seeing the movie. It's hard to get this song out of your head. Great tune.

You'd probably have to see the movie to appreciate it. It was made with real musicians. Very good movie - liked it a lot.

This is a great song and without too much electric instruments or commercial on it. No wonder it is Oscar Awarded song.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing song
I heard this song on tv one day as I was flipping through the channels and knew I had to have it. I use it every morning for my alarm and it's perfect. It's almost haunting.
