Speak Softly Love (Love Theme From The Godfather)" is a song written for The Godfather (1972), the first film in the Godfather trilogy. While its instrumental version is simply known as "The Godfather theme", "Speak Softly Love" is the vocal version. The words and music are by Larry Kusik and Nino Rota.
Originally sung by Andy Williams, other artists, such as Bobby Vinton, have also recorded the song. Slash of Velvet Revolver (formerly of Guns N' Roses) had also performed it in a hard rock style. Slash's version contains backing chords from Izzy Stradlin, bass from Duff McKagan, piano from Axl Rose and has a solo in the beginning. Satan's Pilgrims have performed a surf rock version as well. Dalida had also covered under the title Parle plus bas (Le Parrain), as well as Tino Rossi and Marie Laforêt[1]. A Ukrainian version "Say, You Love Me" Ukrainian: Скажи, що любиш (Skazhi schyo lyubish) was performed by Sofia Rotaru in the musical film "Song Is Always With Us", as the Soviet administration did not allow to register the original English version for the Godfather's soundtrack following the offer from Ariola (Sony BMG Music Entertainment). An Italian version appears in The Godfather Part III. It appears on the music compilation Mob Hits: the Best Songs of Mafia Movies. The Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra has also performed a ska version of the song. Also lifted for an Indian Movie Akele Hum Akele Tum whose theme is a story of a composer whose tunes are stolen by others. In Yugoslavia it was adapted and sung by Tereza Kesovija as Govori Tiše .
