Can’t Help Falling in Love – my U2 A to Z
Even though Can’t Help Falling in Love is credited to Bono and not U2, I am going to include it as part of my U2 favorites. U2 played it on the ZooTv tour. In fact, one of my greatest memories of the ZooTv tour is when Bono knelt in front of me (I was in the 3rd row) and sang Can’t Help Falling in Love as U2 closed the DC show on August 16, 1992 – the 15th anniversary of Elvis’ death. As an avid Elvis fan, this was an amazing, unforgettable moment for me! My worlds were colliding! Elvis used to close his shows with Can’t Help Falling in Love, a fact I’m sure Bono knew. My favorite recorded version is this one with Bono singing while Elvis is talking. Bono sings an abbreviated version of Can’t Help Falling in Love while an Elvis interview is playing in the background.
This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My U2’ – what I love about U2 from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog Deena’s Days about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z.
This is such a wonderful song… two reasons Elvis and Bono…
Thanks for stopping by and yes what a great song!
I have never heard this cover before- thanks for sharing!
glad you liked it. U2 does another version without Elvis speaking in the background, but I obviously like this one better. Thanks for stopping by.
