[WIN!] Sing Street DVD & Shure Earphones

John Carney makes great movies. His breakout hit Once turned the world onto the fantastic band Swell Season and was definitely one of my favorites of 2007. Then his 2013 film Begin Again starred Mark Ruffalo and a pre-late-night James Corden. So when I heard I got the chance to give away a DVD copy of his latest film Sing Street AND its a feel-good, coming of age story featuring the ultimate soundtrack of the 80s I was pretty stoked.


Head over this Instagram post and comment with both of the following:

  1. The name of your favorite 80s song
  2. Tag a friend who loves that song too
  3. Use the hashtag #SingStreetDVD

One (1) winner receives:
