Something Light for a Saturday Night

I finally saw the movie Once. Truly beautiful. Marketa Irglova is stunning.

So, tonight, I’ll start out slow with Marketa singing The Hill in one of the great scenes from Once.

But … wait … melancholy isn’t really the mood of the moment for liberals, progressives and Democrats.

There is a buzz, an excitement, that continues to grow from 2006. So, while searching for a piece from Marketa, I came across a clip from her co-star in Once, Glen Hansard (lead singer of The Frames). It’s a brilliant cover of Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks and I believe it captures a mood many of us are currently feeling.

PARENTAL ADVISORY WARNING: This clip features extreme violence to the D string. So for those who are sensitive to such things or are members of PE”D”A, please consider yourselves forewarned.
