“Only Fools Rush In”
#CLRW Listener here continuing my thoughts for Elvis month. I have always loved this song and the feeling it invokes of giving in to love and emotion. Even the visual of Elvis performing it gives me chills when you see him pour his heart and soul into it. So when this band did a remake everyone had their reservations, me included.
He band has come so close to winning awards in multiple categories but has never won any of them. Nominated four times for Grammy’s Reggae Album of the Year this group of friends named their band off a form for unemployment in the UK (Unemployment Benefit, for 40). A troubled past and a ton of hits along the way but none as big or impactful as this. A rather simple video for the time but UB40 cemented themselves in Elvis lore with Can’t Help Falling in love With You and your choice for Classic Rock Wednesday.
