Speak Love to Me... And Soon

Song Sketch

Today happens to be my
mother's birthday! Whew! Maternal birthday madness! So I covered a song I remember her loving when I was little. It plays in One Touch of Venus with Ava Gardner (who my mother adores) and each of the main characters sing it alone and so longingly - it really is a gorgeous scene.

It was written by Kurt Weill and Ogden Nash for the play version of One Touch of Venus, but quickly became a jazz standard covered by a ton of people. And now me! I hope you like it, Mommy! I love you!

I'm now using SoundCloud which allows the listener to download the song themselves from the widget, however, I still truly appreciate the comments! And if you aren't able to work the download, don't hesitate to ask me for a copy!


  1. Gorgeous!!!
    The most beautiful rendition ever!

  2. I love this song!! I'm so glad you covered it. You did a beautiful job! I like how you ease into the song with the piano solo - so cool!! I downloaded it!

  3. My gosh, Emma, I LOVE THIS SONG!! it's like the best thing from "One touch of Venus"; and your version is adorable!! Congrats :)
