The YouTube Link:
Where you heard it first: The song was written by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová for the 2007 film Once. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. It was later featured in the stage adaptation of the movie. Many also first heard it when it was covered by Kris Allen on American Idol.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: We here at ALNM adore Laura Osnes AND Aaron Tveit AND "Falling Slowly." A combination of all three? Pure Heaven.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: Because we need more people to freak out over this collision of amazing like we are. And this all happened because Darren Criss pretty much wanted to create a Broadway version of Coachella. Can we go next year?
