Elvis Presley’s 1961 version
The 1961 version of Can’t Help Falling in Love is one of Elvis Presley’s most beloved songs. Based on a classical French love song from the 18th century, the song quickly became a popular single for the King. It was a major hit and often closed Elvis Presley shows. It was also one of his most covered songs, and remains a fan favorite even today.
The song was originally a movie soundtrack, and in 1961, Elvis Presley recorded a cover version for the soundtrack of the film “Blue Hawaii.” The song became a hit, and Presley’s version soon became the standard. Although the song was originally thought of as an easy-listening song, it has grown into one of the most popular love songs of all time.
This version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” was recorded in 1961 and reached number one on the US charts. It stayed at the top for more than 20 weeks, and was only broken by Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours album in 1977. In the US, the song sold more than one million copies. It was certified Platinum by the RIAA and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, and the Adult Contemporary chart for six weeks.
