Speak Softly Love

I watched The Godfather both Friday night and Saturday morning. Friday, I just watched it straight through. Saturday, I watched it with the director's commentary turned on, which was really interesting.

One of the things that hit me while watching the movie was how beautiful Speak Softly Love (The Godfather Theme) is. I've always loved that music. I can't believe that I've been playing my mandolin since February and I hadn't remembered that Speak Softly Love is a mandolin song. Today, I took a quick look at mandozine.com and found the music for it.

This evening, I've been wandering through the house like a bard with my mandolin, filling the air with sounds of Sicily. The dove seemed to enjoy it. I think I need to write words to that song so I can sing while I play.
