Elvis Presley's 80th Birthday
"You only pass through this life once, you don't come back

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

|"Can't Help Falling in Love" is a
song originally recorded by American singer
Elvis Presley and published by Gladys Music, Elvis Presley's
publishing company. It was written by
Luigi Creatore and
George David Weiss.
The melody is based on "Plaisir
(1784), a popular romance by
Jean Paul Egide Martini (1741–1816). It was featured in
Elvis Presley's 1961 film,
Blue Hawaii. During the following four decades, it was recorded
by numerous other artists, including British
whose 1993 version topped the
UK charts, and Swedish pop group
Elvis Presley's version of the song, which topped the British charts in 1962, has appeared in numerous other films, including Coyote Ugly and Walt Disney's Lilo & Stitch. The single is certified by the RIAA as a Platinum record, for US sales in excess of one million copies. In the United States, the Elvis Presley version of the song peaked at number two on the pop chart and went to number one on the Easy Listening chart for six weeks.
During Presley's late 1960s and 1970s live performances, the song was performed as the show's finale. Most notably, it was also sung in the live segment of his 1968 NBC television special, and as the closer for his 1973 Global telecast, Aloha from Hawaii. A version with a faster and sloppier arrangement was used as the closing for Presley's final TV special, Elvis in Concert.
