So I've always rebelled against covers. I played one or two here and there, but guys like Leo Marrichiolio (Frog Leap Studios) on Youtube helped me rethink this. I had this particular song's sheet music in my music book forever. Literally the last 20 years or so. I think I got it while hunting for songs to play when I was still a teenager and learning guitar. I have never seen "The Godfather" till earlier this year, but I did play and learn the song on piano from sheet music, recognised it from radio play most probably, and started singing it here and there while sitting alon with a guitar ... and wow, that is a long sentence.
Anyways, earlier this year I came to the conclusion that this song will do well with a bit of metal/hard-rock treatment .However, when I sing it, I sound like a crooner. So, well, I thought, why not do some crooner metal? Well, that is what came from my efforts over the last couple of months. Tom Jones, you'll thank me when one day you go metal. Or you, Bubleè.
