Elvis Made It Famous But As Andrea Bocelli Sings It Tears Fall Down Viewers’ Faces

Back in 2006, Andrea Bocelli performed Elvis’ Can’t Help Falling In Love back in at the Lake Las Vegas Resort. Two singers sing the same song over 50 years apart. With both versions, the beauty of the lyrics and melody grab you and take you to another place. Both Elvis Presley and Andrea Bocelli gave this song everything they had. You may be familiar with Elvis’ version, written for the film Blue Hawaii, but have you heard Bocelli’s?

Can’t Help Falling in Love was first performed by Elvis for his album, Blue Hawaii, for the film of the same name, according to Song Facts. Its melody comes from an old French love song, Plaisir d’amour. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts after its debut, according to Elvis History Blog. Elvis continued performing the song for many years, often as his closing number. But despite its success, people surrounding Elvis weren’t always sure that the song would do well before it was released.

“That was one of the songs that he recorded that no one had any kind of idea that it was going to be that good of a song, Elvis’ friend Alan Fortas said in a radio documentary, according to the same blog.

“Everybody just kind of halfway liked it. Just an average song and everyone just sat around and just passed it off as just an odd song in the soundtrack.” But luckily, Elvis stuck with it and released the track to great success.This song’s popularity made it a popular cover choice for a variety of musicians including Bob Dylan and the band U2. Its lyrics are well-known to many fans and continue to bring joy and smiles around the world.

Fast forward more than fifty years after the song’s debut, and you find world-renowned singer Andrea Bocelli trying his hand at this classic love song. Blinded at age 12 after a soccer injury, Bocelli is known for his beautiful, clear voice. Many know him for his classical singing, but even more people know him from his pop albums.
