The song was composed by Luigi Creatore, George David Weiss, and Hugo Peretti. Initially, its name is “Can’t Help Falling in Love with Him,” which was written for a woman.
The song was first featured in the film Blue Hawaii of Presley. During the next 40 years, a host of other artists recorded this song, comprising of Bob Dylan, Tom Smoothers, A-Teens, and UB40.
The version of Elvis Presley ranked No.1 in the rankings in the UK in 1962 for four weeks. The song is granted Platinum certification by the RIAA for the sales of over one million copies in the US.
Besides, the song also reached Top 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart behind Joey Dee and the “Peppermint Twist” of Starliters. Not to mention, it topped the Adult Contemporary chart, spending six weeks at No. 1.
During live performances of Presley in the late 60s and 70s, the single was performed as the finale of the show. Notably, Presley also sang the song in a live performance on NBC in 1968 as well as in Global telecast in 1973.
It is known that the last song that Presley performed live was Can’t Help Falling in Love at a concert in Indianapolis, Market Square Arena on June 26, 1977.
