Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” is a “modern” take on Martini’s “Plaisir d’amour” 

“I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” is one of Elvis Presley‘s most enduring–and most romantic–hits. Now the song seems like a slice of heaven from a bygone era, which is ironic, because when it was recorded it already was. The tune’s songwriters pretty much stole the melody from an 18th romance song called, “Plaisir d’amour.”
