I've read nothing but wonderful things about the movie, Once. Unfortunately, the only place it played in this burg is at a theater in a mall that I always get lost (always!) trying to get out of. It is at the crossroads of two major boulevards, and the twists you have to take to get on the road back to my house always baffle me.
So I'll have to wait to get it on Netflix. Which means I have to watch the two movies I've had here collecting dust for weeks. My fault, not theirs.
Anyway, even though I haven't seen the movie, I have some of the music, which is haunting and beautiful. What I have is "The Swell Season", under which name the stars of the movie, Irish musician Glen Hansard (of The Frames) and Czech musician Marketa Irglova play and sing together. Many of the songs on the album later were in the movie.
As wonderful as all the music is, I keep hitting the repeat button on one: "Cry Me a River". Not the Julie London version, which was featured in V for Vendetta, but the one written by Justin Timberlake, supposedly about his breakup with Britney Spears.
The strange thing is that on my CD, the fourth cut is "Cry Me a River", but the label says "Drown Out", which is a whole different number.
I'm confused. But here's "Cry Me a River" by Hansard and Irglova, which I think is much better than Timberlake's.
Hope you took the time to listen to all the YouTube links and finally the song.
There'll be a quiz.
