“Can’t Help Falling In Love” Visited & Revisited

utterli-image
For the latest version of ‘visited & revisited/still so appreciated’ showcasing one song by an artist still appreciated (and covered) by new artists, I’ve chosen one of the greatest love songs of all time “Can’t Help Falling In Love” originally written by George Weiss, Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore, and based on “Plaisir d’amour” by Jean Paul Egide Martini. It was rewritten for the 1961 film Blue Hawaii, starring Elvis Presley, who would obviously make the song insanely popular thereafter.

    This is a great post. I didn’t know Ingrid Michaelson before and am now glad that I do! Her version is gorgeous.
