Andy Williams - Speak Softly Love

The famous Love theme from The Godfather has been performed by hundreds of artists through the years, the best known recorded version being the Andy Williams one with lyrics in English. However, it does not appear on the official film score, which only features the original instrumental theme composed by the late Nino Rota.
Here are a few different renditions available on Youtube:

Andy Williams - Speak Softly Love (to a montage of clips from the first film)

Guitar virtuoso Slash plays The Godfather Theme

Sofia Rotaru version

André Rieu with Johann Strauss Orchestra

The beauty of this piece of music is not something words can describe. It evokes powerful feelings and flashbacks from the films.


Speak softly, love, and hold me warm against your heart
I feel your words, the tender trembling moments start
We’re in a world, our very own
Sharing a love that only few have ever known

Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one

Speak softly, love, so no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love we make will live until we die
My life is yours, and all because
You came into my world with love, so softly, love
