Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love” on a Kalimba Sounds Kind of Awesome

Can’t Help Falling In Love was originally written by Hugo Peretti, Luigi Creatore, and George David Weiss. It was performed by Elvis Presley for his movie Blue Hawaii in 1961. By the next year his version of the song had topped the British charts and become a huge sensation in England and in America. Elvis Presley’s voice was loved just about everywhere he went, and this song was eventually sung by other groups that put their own spin on the tune, such as UB40, a British reggae band that topped the Us and UK charts with this song in 1993.

Miley Cyrus Dishes on Musical Inspirations—from Father Billy Ray to Elvis Presley—at Album Release Party
Not that anyone’s keeping track, but it’s safe to say this was the first album release party that began with a guest appearance by a puppet.

And that was just Act I of Miley Cyrus’ three-act extravaganza, thrown for about 150 super-fans who packed into the third floor of Nashville’s most iconic downtown honky-tonk, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, on Friday night to celebrate the release of Younger Now.

The new album is a declaration by the 24-year-old artist, who’s spent the past decade successively reinventing herself, that she’s now embracing all her former selves (yes, including

Kid Galahad

He sings, he fixes cars, and he takes punches better than De Niro’s Raging Bull. Elvis Presley excels in one of his few ’60s pictures that shows an interest in being a ‘real movie,’ a remake of a boxing saga with entertaining characters and fine direction from noir specialist Phil Karlson. Plus Charles Bronson, Lola Albright and Joan Blackman in standout roles.

16 Iconic Photos of Elvis Presley That Prove He Was the Ultimate Heartthrob
Elvis Presley was an icon for so many reasons - he knew how to sing, he knew how to dance, and he knew how to make girls go crazy with that smile. Like so many other greats before him, the musician and actor, famous for songs like "Jailhouse Rock" and movies like Blue Hawaii, left this world much too soon. Elvis was just 42 years old when he suffered a heart attack and died in August 1977. But despite his physical absence, he's still very much a part of pop culture. His good looks make new generations fall in love with him, his songs are still blasted on the radio, and his Graceland mansion in Tennessee is still a huge tourist attraction. To celebrate his life and your unwavering crush on him, look at some of his best moments ahead that will still make you weak in the knees. RelatedWedding Music: The

Escape artist Hampton Fancher reveals beating out Jean-Pierre Léaud and the pathway that led him to star in Michael Pfleghar's Romeo und Julia 70, opposite Tina Sinatra. Norman Taurog's Blue Hawaii starring Elvis Presley and Joan Blackman, Teri Garr, Brian Kelly and Flipper surface. Michael Almereyda makes a Skinningrove (his film on photographer Chris Killip) connection to a scene with Harrison Ford in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner and remarks "it's called Escapes for a reason as almost every episode involves a near-death experience."

He was one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, an insanely handsome music and film star whose engagement to a dark-haired non-celeb resulted in a stack of headlines and a pile of broken hearts.

Michael Moore on 'Roger & Me' and the Demise of the Modern Documentary

  • Moviefone
It's been 25 years -- yes, 25 years -- since documentary filmmaker/overall s**t-disturber Michael Moore came out with his seminal doc "Roger & Me," which took a look at the United States' precarious dependence on the auto industry and the crumbling city of Flint, Michigan (his hometown).

Since that film, we all know the story: Moore shot to super-stardom and essentially became the face of the modern documentary with international hits like "Bowling for Columbine," "Fahrenheit 9/11," and "Sicko." In many ways, he paved the groundwork for future of-the-moment pop-culture documentarians like Morgan Spurlock and the "Catfish" brothers.

Moore attended the recent Toronto Film Festival (where "Roger & Me" first premiered a quarter-century ago) to be feted by the cinematic community and to speak at a conference, and Moviefone Canada caught up with him for a brief chat. Wearing his ever-present askew baseball hat, Moore went off on a small tangent about Canada,

Angela Lansbury: return of a star who shines ever brighter | Observer profile

After 40 years, the British-born actress who conquered Hollywood and starred in TV's Murder, She Wrote is back on the West End stage. As she approaches her 90s, she's in her theatrical prime

In the play Blithe Spirit, the wildly eccentric and chaotic clairvoyant Madame Arcati, Noël Coward's most colourful creation, announces that "time is the reef upon which all our frail mystic ships are wrecked".

No aphorism has ever applied less than this does to the actress now about to don the headscarves and bangles to play Arcati in the West End at the age of 88. Dame Angela Lansbury, ennobled earlier this month, has defied the laws of nature by becoming more theatrically prolific as her years have advanced. In 2007, she was Tony award-nominated for her role in a new Terrence McNally play, Deuce, on Broadway; in 2010, she was nominated again for a revival of Sondheim's A Little Night Music; and then,
