3. Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling In Love
Has anyone ever come close to matching the chart career of Elvis Presley? No, and no one will ever! Anyway, this song here was just another number one hit in the UK for Elvis Presley, reaching the top spot in February 1962. Next up is a random Elvis Presley cover version!
