We all know how great “The Godfather” movies are, it is still one of the most favourite and popular movies of all time and holds place in top 3 positions on IMDB with 9.2 ratings. You might still remember the famous dialogue from this movie.

I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.

# Love Theme from The Godfather

The most fascinating thing in this movie I feel was the use of music and themes. The music composed by Nino Rota was the masterpiece that people still play in the live concerts. This was instrumental theme at first, later it got released in the form of song which I will talk about in a while but let’s talk about the theme now.

The theme song was so famous that it used to have symphony orchestra live concerts just for the theme music.

The Godfather Movie

Here are some of the best videos on internet of Godfather themes and the various cover versions

# Original theme

This was used in the first part of the movie and it was called as “Love theme”.

# Another version with nice instruments!

# Symphony concerts

# Another version with sad tunes

# Some more slow versions

The one who likes the slow version, I liked this one because it has some background beats with guitar.

# Song named Speak Softly, Love

The singer Andy Williams later created his version or rendition song in 1972 later after the theme got so popular and named the song “Speak Softly, Love“, which also toped the charts and became very popular. You can listen to this song and get the idea how great it sounds in the form of song too.

# Lyrics of original soundtrack

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 our 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

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

# Fingerstyle Guitars

People created their own versions with finger style guitar covers. Here are some of my picks for you.

This guy took it to another level by playing multiple strings for the background part too. Amazing finger style skills!

Please let me know which version of this theme you like in the comments. πŸ™‚
