Music Whenever; The Speakeasies Swing Band "Theme from Godfather"

The Star Wars movie series is fun - at least the recent one matches the first three in touching all the buttons - but, let's be honest, still sci-fi fluff. But the Godfather, the Dark Side not as a caricature, but the Dark Side we can relate too, the one that is embedded into our brain as the true dichotomy, the statement of the paradox of the human animal.

A great cover of the Godfather theme, the wistful, tender, but ultimately boppy love song (lyrics by Larry Kusik, and music by Nino Rota) underpinning a movie about the battle of the black souls, call them anti-heroes, but seared into our culture nonetheless..
