In This Corner -- Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova: Following their Irish elder's lead, the two stars of 'Once' cover the famously evocative tune at several performances. The two insist that the show isn't over until the whole audience enters into a spiritual journey with them by asking everyone to belt out, "I want to rock your gypsy soul/ Just like way back in the days of old/And together we will float into the mystic."
