LOVE IS IN DA BLOG 26 – “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” – The Lion King

I have seen a few musicals in my time. For many years I held season tickets for Broadway San Antonio at the Historic Majestic Theatre. Of the musicals that I have seen, the one that had the most spectacular production was The Lion King. I remember when the Disney production of the animatedย  movie came out and I heard the song written by Sir Elton John, I fell in love with it.

When I saw it performed live in the musical, I had chills from head to toe because it was so magnificent. For this post I have three different versions of the song. The first, obviously Sir Elton John; the second is a performance by the cast of The Lion King – performed live at the Palladium in London and the third is a bilingual version sung by Adrienne Walker and Augustin Arguello from 2017.

Lyrics

I can see what’s happening
What
And they don’t have a clue
Who
They’ll fall in love and here’s the bottom line
Our trio’s down to two
Oh
The sweet caress of twilight
There’s magic everywhere
And with all this romantic atmosphere
Disaster’s in the air
Can you feel the love tonight
The peace the evening brings
The world for once in perfect harmony
With all its living things
So many things to tell her
But how to make her see
The truth about my past, impossible
She’d turn away from me
He’s holding back, he’s hiding
But what, I can’t decide
Why won’t he be the king I know he is?
The king I see inside?
Can you feel the love tonight?
The peace the evening brings
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things
Can you feel the love tonight?
You needn’t look too far
Stealing through the night’s uncertainties
Love is where they are
And if he falls in love tonight
It can be assumed
His carefree days with us are history
In short, our pal is doomed
Songwriters: Elton John / Tim Rice

That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!
