And so the lyric goes. I woke up with this tune in my head this morning. It’s from a film I saw about a month ago called Once. When a song creeps up on you weeks after you’ve heard it, you know there’s a hook that can’t be denied.
I loved this little Irish flick. Short and sweet. A musical, stripped down to the classic tale of Guy meets Girl. We never even learn their names. The plot: A street musician with a past meets a musically gifted immigrant with a present. Over the course of a week, the two kindred souls write and record a batch of songs that mirror the relationship that develops before our eyes.
To make things even cooler, the lead actors wrote and performed the songs themselves. And they are KILLIN.
