I first heard Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova just several weeks ago. No, I don’t go out much … Actually, I do. But it’s mostly on my own. I love the outdoors. Put me on a hiking trail and you’ve just made me one really happy girl. I’ll even thank you. Right before I bid you “Good day” and kindly ask you to go hike on a different trail. I’m as anti-social as they come. I’m only half joking now …
Anyway, for the past few weeks, I’ve been listening to Glen and Marketa almost daily. I love hearing them sing together. I was surprised to hear they are not a couple anymore. They look and sound like they belong together.
I like how Glen Hansard described their romance: “It just made sense. It was lovey. And it was brilliant.” They sure make lovely, brilliant music together.
I can’t even choose a favorite song. But here are three of the ones I keep listening to.
Yes, simply brilliant!
