C is for Can’t Help Falling in Love

My favorite U2 song that begins with C is Can’t Help Falling in Love. I kind of cheated a little here because the version that is my favorite was actually credited to Bono, but U2 did play it on the ZooTv tour. In fact, one of my greatest memories of the ZooTv tour is when Bono knelt in front of me and sang Can’t Help Falling in Love as U2 closed the DC show on August 16, 1992 – the 15th anniversary of Elvis’ death. Elvis used to close his shows with Can’t Help Falling in Love, a fact I’m sure Bono knew. So it’s obvious why I chose this song as one of my favorites – it’s my two worlds colliding with U2 covering an Elvis song. But even better is this version of Bono singing over Elvis talking. Bono sings an abbreviated version of Can’t Help Falling in Love while an Elvis interview is playing in the background.

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay, would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you
Like a river flows to the sea
So it goes, some things were meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
I can’t help falling in love with you
I can’t help falling in love with you
