Can't Help Falling in Love by kat330 published on 2013/09/03 11:31:47 +0000 [for Margaret] This was one of my mother's favorite songs—certainly her favorite Elvis tune. I have fond memories of singing the upper harmony to her melody line whenever it came on the radio. It was a fitting choice then as the closing song for a live set performed at her senior center shortly before her death. That was the last occasion Mom had to see me sing and play and also the final time for me to hear her say just how proud of me she was. There is a first here, too: I've included a few phrases in the "Flute" mode of a new Yamaha keyboard. I've had very little time to become acquainted with this machine while off in the wild, but I'm hopeful it can fill in some gaps in my one-woman ensemble for future productions. Lyrics written by Hugo Peretti, Luigi Creatore, and George David Weiss [a person per verse?]. The melody is based on "Plaisir d'Amour" (1784) by Jean Paul Egide Martini.
