Welcome to our show and we are excited to share decades of music with you in 2022.
Here is my second selection of top 1993 hits which I hope you will enjoy.
UB40 – Falling in love with you
“Falling in love with you” was written by Hugo Peretti, Luigi Creatore, and George David Weiss. The melody is based on the popular French love song “Plaisir d’amour,” composed in 1784 by Jean-Paul-Edwige Martini, and was also covered by Elvis Presley in 1961. The UB40’s version of this song peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and remained there for seven weeks. The song topped the charts around the globe, hitting #1 in the UK for two consecutive weeks. It also appears on the soundtrack of the movie “Silver,” the trailer for “Fools Rush In,” and an episode of “Hindsight.” The song and the band appeared in the 1997 film “Speed 2: Cruise Control.”
