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.

The "Godfather Waltz" has lyrics, believe it or not (I didn't know 'til recently). Peter Cincotti recorded it as "Come Live Your Life With Me."

Yeah, I knew the waltz (the main theme) had lyrics, but as far as I know, Speak Softly Love (the love theme), doesn't have lyrics.

Yet.

I surprised my wifey (lj user = pistos) hasn't shown signs of jealousy, or major interest in meeting Dr. Mellow.

She has had a Mandolin for about 2 years... still yearning to learn to play it.

That's about 10+ hours of viewing enjoyment. Hardcore, man...hardcore.

Pardon her, she doesn't know a good film if it hits her in the face.

Hmmmmm... let's see a few of my fav's include:
Snatch
Pulp Fiction
Matrix
Lord of the Rings trilogy
Fight Club
The Big Lebowski

Shall I go on? I like pretty much all the movies drjekyll has on the shelf and pretty much any movie that someone gets shot at or there is some kind of action. Boo to all those crappy "girlie" movies. Give me cussin' and shotin' any day! I just happen to disagree once with this Godfather mess and drjekyll gets all defensive. I did like the horse head in the bed though.

Sounds like you like run-of-the mill movies, but have no appreciation for great films.

I love The Godfather, Pts. 1 and 2 and I never knew that the title piece actually had a name. I thought that it was just a theme.

Interesting too is that I love the mandolin as well although I don't own one and I definitely can't play, but I love its sweet sound. It reminds me of the voice of a lovely woman.
