"Falling Slowly" is an Academy Award-winning song, written and performed by personal and professional partners Glen Hansard and Markta Irglov. It appeared in the couple's 2007 film Once. The song was given the Academy Award for Best Original Song over the choral gospel song "Raise It Up" from August Rush and three songs from the modern Disney musical Enchanted. The song's win marks the fourth year in a row that the winner of the Academy Award for Best Original Song was not nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. For some time, the song's eligibility for an Oscar was in dispute, as it had appeared in 2006 on The Cost (an album issued by Hansard's band, The Frames) as well as in the movie Beauty in Trouble; it had also been performed by the couple in various European venues. The Academy ruled that because the song had been composed for the movie, and the prior public.    Download this sheet!

Music sheets - what is all about? Back in the 19th century, songs in the United States were popularized by musicians through music sheets. It was only in the 1950s when musicians started to bring music sheets to bands so they could play, allowing more people to hear their compositions. Simply, a music sheet is musical composition in printed form. It is composed of unbound sheets of paper where a musical notation of a song is printed. Many associate it with popular music.
