Hear It On Jimmy's Jukebox

The movie is called "Once". It's a story about two people who meet on the street and decide to make music together. Glen Hansard ("The Commitments") plays an Irish street performer, who meets Marketa Ingova, a Czech immigrant who likes his music.

It's such a little movie that you never learn either of their names. But you see into their hearts, and you root for them every step of the way. Rent it when it comes out and watch it with someone you love. Snuggle up, and tell them that you love them.

Man, I've been a sucker for Lonesome Music lately. It feels good. And this fits right in.

Falling Slowly

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that

Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react

And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black

You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly
Sing your melody
I'll sing along

I've enabled a link on the bottom of the jukebox for you to see a music video of the song, with clips from the movie. You can also download the mp3, for a while.

The movie and the soundtrack got quite a lot of positive reviews. I heard the two leading cast members are actually dating now because of working together in that movie.

Dick: You are talking about the movie, right?

John: I didn't know that, and I hope that's true. If you search for the song on YouTube, there are MANY, MANY clips of the two singing that song together in different places. They sure spent a lot of time together plugging the movie, that's for sure!

Um, you know, Ice John, I've made several attempts to try to "get to know you better" *wink*, and you don't seem to get back to me. I must tell you I can only wait so long. Right now I'm starting to think about finding someone who's "more responsive", if you catch my drift. Just sayin'... I'm willing to give it another month, but the clock's ticking.
Of course, I may have to change into something a little more decent. And wash my hair...

Dick: Please stick to cruising for your dating needs and stop harrassing my friends.

Stepping: Hope you don't mind if I blogroll you, I love reading you and want to share you with anyone who passes my way.

Okay, three months. But that's it. I've got to draw the line somewhere.
