Music Video of the Day: Can’t Help Falling In Love by UB40 (1993, directed by Neil Abramson) — Through the Shattered Lens

This is my wife’s birthday so this song is perfect for the day!

For much of 1993, this song and music video was inescapable on MTV.  Director Neil Abramson also directed videos for Belinda Carlisle, Enigma, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Dwight Yoakam.  Soiuxsie and the Banshees and Dwight Yoakam?  The music business makes for some interesting connections. Enjoy!

  1. Happy birthday to Alex. I’ll be odd man out because I think earlier versions of the same song are better. Musical tastes vary as much as the likes and dislikes of foods.

    • Yes, that’s a fair point…when Kelly Clarkson does her daily #kellyoke, she always respects the original version and doesn’t just try to replicate it, and NEVER suggests she is doing a better version – she always respects and credits the original Artist

  2. Happy Birthday, Alex! What a perfect song! I remember this version, and MTV made it a big hit. Have you listened to the original Elvis version? That’s a winner.
