UB40 and Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley Versus UB40

Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling In Love

Originally recorded by Elvis Presley in 1961, ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ was featured in his film, Blue Hawaii. Elvis tended to close his live shows with this love song during the late 1960s and 1970s.

The original version reached number one in the British charts in 1962 and in America, it peaked at number two on the pop chart.

UB40 - Can't Help Falling In Love

In 1993, UB40 recorded a cover of ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’. It climbed to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US after debuting at number 100. It was also number 1 in the UK.

Best Version? Two very different styles - but Elvis clinches it for us.
