Romance Nouvelle (1785) / Romance du Chevrier (1785) / Plaisir D'Amour (1800's) / Can't Help Falling In Love (1961) / I Want To Live (1969) / Eres Tu (1973)


"Plaisir d'amour" (literally "The pleasure of love") is a classical French love song written in 1785 by Jean-Paul-Égide Martini (1741–1816) ; it took its text from a poem by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian (1755–1794), which appears in his novel "Célestine" (Nouvelle Espagnole), which was part of the book "Les Six Nouvelles de M. de Florian" (published in 1784)

The poem is an integral part of the Novel "Celestine" (Nouvelle Espagnole) and appears on page 123

With a musical setting it was first published as "Romance Nouvelle" de M. Le Chevalier de Florian, sur une musique de M. Martini in the Periodique "Etrennes de Polymnie" (Jean Baudrais / 1785) (page 211)

Sometime around the beginning of the 19th Century the song was retitled "Plaisir D'Amour", and with this title the song became worldfamous.

But, since "Plaisir D'Amour" is a French song, it could very well be, the first recording was done in France. The Albert Piccaluga version was recorded in Paris in 1902, probably before de Gogorza's version.

(c) Mocedades (1973)  ("Eres Tu")

The 1973 Eurovision Song Contest was marked by a scandal, with "Eres tú" being accused of plagiarism following suggestions that it was merely a rewrite of the Yugoslav entry from the 1966 contest "Brez besed" ("Without words") sung by Berta Ambrož.
Nevertheless, "Eres tú" was not disqualified. It has been suggested that this may have been for political reasons, but I think it's because BOTH songs were inspired by "PLAISIR D'AMOUR"

Well judge for yourself:






BTW the Canadian national anthem might also be inspired by "Plaisir D'Amour".

Listen here:






In 1993, British reggae band UB40 recorded "Can't Help Falling In Love" as the first single from their 1993 album Promises and Lies. The song was released in May 1993, in the majority of countries worldwide. It eventually climbed to number one on the Billboard Hot 100
