The contents of this Elvis Presley site is written by a fan for his fans about Can't Help Falling in Love.



"Can't Help Falling in Love," by George Weiss, Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore, is a pop song based on "Plaisir d'amour" by Jean Paul Egide Martini. It was rewritten for the 1961 film Blue Hawaii, starring Elvis Presley.

Elvis Presley's version

In the U.S., the Elvis Presley recording was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 47-7968 in 1961. Peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in that year, and at number four on the Cash Box magazine Best-Selling Records list in January of the following year, "Can't Help Falling in Love" was ranked #394 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

In 1968, Presley, in both the sit-down and stand-up segments of his NBC-TV special, gave the song a new live treatment. By July 1969, Elvis used the song almost invariably to close his live concerts, including his last in late June 1977 at the old Indianapolis Market Square Arena.

Lyrics for Can’t Help Falling In Love

Elvis Presley biography

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can't help falling in love with you
for I can't help falling in love with you

Artists who covered the song after Elvis

Numerous artists followed suit with this Presley hit that had climbed to the top of the charts in the UK as well. Perry Como recorded "Can't Help Falling in Love" on June 26, 1962 for inclusion in his September 1962 album, By Request (RCA Victor Records catalog number LSP-2567).

The Al Martino recording was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 2746 and charted in 1970, peaking at number fifty-one on the Billboard charts and number fifty-seven on the Cash Box magazine Best-Selling Records list.

During the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen occasionally performed the song in his concert encores even though the vocal was out of his range. In 1987, Corey Hart's recording reached number twenty-seven on the Billboard Hot 100. The cover and song were used with the image of forlorn animals in desperate need of rescue for a fundraising television commercial for the Ontario Humane Society.

U2 used the song to close 87 of the 159 concerts on the U2 1992-1993 Zoo TV Tour. One such performance appears on the Zoo TV: Live From Sydney video.

In 1993, British reggae band UB40's cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love" eventually climbed to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 after debuting at number 100 and appears in the soundtrack of the movie Sliver. It remained at number one for seven weeks.

In early 2006, Andrea Bocelli recorded a new version of the song for his album, Amore.

Additional versions

The song appears in the soundtrack of the movie Sliver. The Disney movie Lilo and Stitch featured the song performed by the A*Teens. It has also been adopted as the standard supporters' song of the English football club Sunderland and Scottish Club Airdrie.
