Tune in Tuesday (5): The Swell Season

Tune in Tuesday is hosted by Ginger at GReads! I share Ginger's fanatical love for music. Seriously, we text about songs all the time in the form of "OMG YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS IT'S LIKE HARMONIC NOOKIE FOR YOUR EARS." It's one of my favorite things about her, so I don't know why I don't participate in this feature more often.

So I don't know if any of you have seen the movie Once. Well, I have. I had to watch it with subtitles because the amazing Irish accents were SO THICK AND DELICIOUS that I had no idea what anyone was saying. But the music? OH, the music. I heard that loud and clear. I was literally just flipping through the channels one day and the phone rang. I left it on one of those paid movie channels and answered the phone. It was like two angels getting married in my ears the first time I heard Falling Slowly. I hunted down the movie and watched the whole thing. Then I googled it and OMG THEY HAVE A BAND? WITH MORE SONGS?! It was one of the most glorious moments of my life.

I'd like to share the glory with you.
