Falling slowly

No falling leaves in this part of the world, but blossom is definitely disappearing, albeit slowly.

I know I posted this song a few months ago, but it’s the first thing I thought of when I saw today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt | falling.

Who doesn’t like a good love song? Especially when it belongs to a film as touching and beautifully made as John Carney’s Once.

All of the film’s original music was written and performed by the lead actors Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.

This song, Falling Slowly, won the pair an Oscar for Best Original Song in 2007.
