Classic Hits: A-Teens - Can't Help Falling In Love

"Can't Help Falling In Love" was the A*Teens's first single from their third album "Pop 'Til You Drop!", as well as for the Lilo & Stitch movie soundtrack, which was originally scheduled to include several Presley tracks, the A*Teens picking it for inclusion in the soundtrack. The video had thus tremendous exposure on several television channels, with the A*Teens eventually including the song in their third album. As a result, the song had two music videos, one to promote the Disney movie, the other for the album.

This pop song was a radio hit in the United States, and reached #12 in Sweden, #16 in Argentina and #41 in Australia. Despite the success of the song overseas, it failed to attract the rest of the Latin American public, due to the fact that there was a Spanish version of the song, performed by the Argentine group, Bandana. In addition, the A*Teens' version of the song was overshadowed by the promotion of Bandana's version.

The video was directed by Gregory Dark and filmed in Los Angeles, California. It had two different versions. The "Disney Version", as the fans named it, features scenes of the movie, and also new scenes of the A*Teens with beach costumes. The "A*Teens Version" of the video, features the A*Teens on the white background with different close-ups and choreography, and scenes with puppies and different costumes.

"Can't Help Falling In Love" was released by Walt Disney Records and Universal Music on 29 October 2002 with CD single format.
