    I just watched Once. It's a sweet little indie flick (won Sundance a couple of years ago) about a street musician who meets a struggling woman with immensemusical talent. The two of them get together to write music and eventually record an demo. I would say 65 of the 90 minutes involve the songs the two wrote.It's really an uplifting, beautiful movie. I definitely recommend it.

    It's currently on either Cinemax or Showtime. I would definitely watch it if I have some time to kill.

    I made a post about this movie over a year ago...got like four replies lol.

    I anticipated the US release of this movie and rented it when it came out on Blockbuster.

    "Lies" is absolutely the best song.

    Once is an amazing movie.

    Itunes has them just type in Once and then click the album for the very first song that comes up and all the information will be there.

    Falling Slowly - Song they sing in the music store (won Oscar for Best Song)
    Lies - Song he writes while looking at videos of his wife (my personal favorite)
    If You Want Me - Song she sings while buying batteries for her CD player
    The Hill - Song she sings alone in the studio with the guy watching
    When Your Mind's Made Up - Song the entire band sings during recording
    Say It To Me Now - Song he sings on the street during their first encounter

    I listened to these over and over (and over) again. I grabbed my guitar and sang along lol.

    Absolutely amazing story. I love the way the film was shot. It has a truly authentic and realistic feel to it.

    I was so happy for them when the won an Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture last year.

    If that song can't lift you up when you're down then you have no soul.
