Glen Hansard has this beautiful song called 'Falling Slowly' on the soundtrack to the movie 'Once,' which was only an okay movie. The music is what makes it. Well, this song brings me to tears every time that I hear it. There is so much despair that you can hear in his voice, but there is hope in it as well. For an artist to truly demonstrate this emotional train wreck dichotomy in such a perfect way was unknown to me before this song. It is beautiful. I recommend listening to it with a box of tissues near by.
