About The Song

Conway Twitty. Now there’s a name that evokes a bygone era of country music. A rich baritone with a hint of rockabilly swagger, Twitty carved a unique path through the Nashville scene, blending genres and captivating audiences for decades.

Today, we set our sights on a gem from his earlier rock and roll-tinged period, a song that perfectly encapsulates the heady rush of newfound love – “Easy To Fall In Love”.

Released in 1960, “Easy To Fall In Love” predates Twitty’s foray into the smoother countrypolitan sound that would define his later career. Here, we find him embracing a more energetic, guitar-driven style.

The song bursts forth with a simple yet infectious melody, propelled by a steady backbeat and punctuated by the occasional twang of a steel guitar. It’s a sound reminiscent of the burgeoning rock and roll scene, yet undeniably rooted in the storytelling tradition of country music.

Lyrically, “Easy To Fall In Love” captures the heart’s delightful surrender to infatuation. The narrator describes the all-encompassing presence of a new love, someone who occupies his thoughts both day and night.

The song acknowledges the potential for heartbreak, but for now, the narrator basks in the ease and joy of falling. Twitty’s delivery is key here. He infuses his vocals with a youthful exuberance, perfectly conveying the giddiness and optimism of a burgeoning romance.

“Easy To Fall In Love” stands as a testament to Twitty’s versatility. It’s a song that bridges genres, a delightful blend of rock and roll energy and country charm. It’s a reminder of a time when country music wasn’t afraid to embrace new sounds and influences, and when a simple melody could capture the exhilarating rush of new love.
