I’ll add this song, Falling Slowly, to the list. It is a few years old and I’m sure you’ve heard it. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2007. It’s from the film, Once and is written by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard and I woke up with it in my head, even though I haven’t heard it in a while. (It should be noted, there is a version in which Linda Eder sings it, but I won’t subject you all to any more Linda Eder. It’s getting out of hand. Unless you want me to, in which case…well, call me, we’ll chat…)
