Yesterday I watched The Godfather (I) for the nth time and I was totally smitten by the theme music,and I was surprised that I hadn't noticed it before.Sacriligious! But thats probably because I last watched it about two years ago,that too in parts,with the pressure of the upcoming Board exams(10 the grade secondary exams).Nope,thats not an excuse!I was inattentive and that is inexcusable.heh!
And now I'm crazy about it! I even downloaded the tune and I'm using it as my ringtone :)
This is how it appears in the movie,the original theme
I youtubed the theme for a while and came across one played on violin
I'm not a big fan of the sinister guy in the video,but he does play it well,heart rendering,if you may call it.
I also love this(the video is underneath) song from the movie The City of Angels
Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
When you say nothing at all from the movie Notting hill,sung by Ronan Keating
Note to self:Google the notes of the godfather theme and learn to play it on the guitar.WHEEE !
