When A Cappella Groups Take Chances

Have you folks seen the film Once? It's an Irish flick that became a surprise hit in theaters last summer. (It later earned an Oscar for best song.) It's a sweet little film, recommended for all music fans.

I mention it here because someone just sent me this clip of Hyannis Sound singing "Falling Slowly," a song featured in Once. It's nice to see an a cappella group take a chance on an obscure song. Especially when they do it this well. I'm working on getting a comment from the Once team. In the meantime, check out Hyannis Sound's version here, followed by the original:
