Is there a way that I can add an analog VU meter to a simple circuit that just has an audio input and speaker?

Is there a way that I can add an analog VU meter (the one with the PIN that jumps up and down) to a simple circuit that just has an audio input and speaker? It would go like this: Audio input -> VU meter -> Speaker (See image below)

Can anybody please help me? I think it would be a cool feature to the project I am making but I don't have any electrical engineering background at all and am pretty lost with this stuff....

Thanks

.  You want an audio power meter or voltmeter, not a VU meter.

You can just connect the VU meter in parallel with the speaker.  You may have to adjust the sensitivity of the meter for it to be accurate.
