Float in space and drift in time

As much as I love Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, I never knew that there was an "original", version of the title track. I just made this discovery the other day (I know, I'm always late to the party). The original vision incorporates the melody and lyrics from Elvis Presley's Can't Help Falling In Love, which only makes the song more sweet and melancholy. Apparently the Presley estate objected to this union early on, but finally relented some 12 years later, when the album was reissued in 2009. Like I said, I adored this track already; this version wowed me.
