Prior to Elvis Presley’s recording of “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You”, the song was actually written for a woman and was called “”Can’t Help Falling in Love with Him”.
What other well known songs that you can think of that were originally written for the opposite sex but were made famous from their adapted version? Let me know in the comments!
The tune was featured in Presley’s movie Blue Hawaii but apparently neither the movie producers nor Elvis’ associates liked the song demo but Elvis insisted on recording it for the movie.
As I break down his isolated vocals from the song, we’ll explore how ginger and sensitive he was on this particular song and how he got there by staying long on the vowel and using a lot of air.
