Can`t help Falling In Love With You -
Elvis recorded this song for the Blue Hawaii movie sountrack and LP on March 23rd, 1961 at Radio Recorders in LA, lavishing 29 takes on the tune before he was satisfied. Little did he know that this movie song, which he croons in the picture to a 78-year-old grandma, would be the show finale for so many hundreds of performances.
Released in late November 1961, in its fourteen weeks on the charts "Can`t Help Falling In Love With You" made it to #2, paired with B-Side tune " Rock-A-Hula Baby," and soared past the million sales mark in the US. In the UK, it was #1 for four straight weeks.
The song is actually a traditional French 18th century tune called "Plaisir d` Amour" by Giovanni Martini, with words penned specially for the movie by George Weiss, Hugo Peretti, and Luigi Creatore.
When Elvis was recording the song, he told the musicians that he would be thinking of a little girl called Priscilla who he had left behind in Germany.
Elvis chose "Can`t Help Falling In Love With You" over "Such A Night," " What`d I Say," and Fifties finale "Hound Dog" as his closing number when he returned to live performing in August 1969. As well as providing a suitably romantic finale to his Seventies stage shows, the song remained for Elvis a personal declaration of love to his lady of the moment, and a slightly less personal declaration to thousands of smitten fans in the audience. At his final concerts, Elvis sang the song to girlfriend Ginger Alden, who was positioned on stage for just this moment...
Before its new lease of life in the Seventies, Elvis resuscitated the tune for his career-reviving NBC TV Special in 1968, featuring it in the show and on the tie-in LP.
Elvis` perennial closer, the song has featured on practically every live album of Elvis` since -
From Memphis to Vegas/Elvis In Person.
Since Elvis, the tune has been covered by performers as diverse as Bob Dylan, Julio Iglesias, Bono,
UB40 and Pearl Jam.
