ABC Wednesday - Round 10 - C is for ...

Can't is a strange word to pick for "C" but I think it picked itself.
I selected 3 "C" songs that I love and they all start with "Can't".
So Can't it is this week.

Can't Buy Me Love by The Beatles

Written by Paul McCartney became the Beatles fourth number one single on the UK music charts and their third to sell over a million copies in the UK. 
It was recorded on 29 January 1964 at EMI's Pathe Marcdoni Studios in Paris, France where The Beatles were performing 18 days of concerts at the Olympia Theatre.
 It became the first single that they released without their characteristic background harmonies.

Can't Take My Eyes Off You by Andy Williams

I love this song and I love Andy Williams' version though it was originally sung by Frankie Valli in 1967.
It made it to no.2 on the US Charts.
The writer/composers of this song were Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio.

Can't Help Falling in Love (With You)  by Elvis Presley

Written by Hugo Peretti, Luigi Creatore and George David Weiss and originally recorded by Elvis Presley.
Several others have also sung/recorded this song including:
* Perry Como
* Corey Hart
* Clay Aiken
* CSJH The Grace
* Harry Connick Jr
* William Control
* Celine Dion

I'm not a great fan of Elvis, but I do love this song and I think he sang it really well.

Enjoy your day.
