¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

"Can You Feel the Love Tonight" is a song from Disney's 1994 animated film The Lion King,[1] composed by Elton John with lyrics by Tim Rice. It was described by Don Hahn (the film's producer), Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff (the film's directors) as having "the most diverse history" in the film.[2] It was a chart hit in the UK, peaking at #14 on the UK Singles Chart, and achieved even more success in the U.S., reaching a peak of #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was a number-one hit in France.

The song was performed in the film by Kristle Edwards, Joseph WilliamsSally DworskyNathan Lane, and Ernie Sabella, while the end title version was performed by Elton John. It won the 1994 Academy Award for Best Original Song and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song. It also earned Elton John the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.

In 2003, a remixed version of the song was included in the Special Edition soundtrack of The Lion King, again sung by Elton John.
In the midquel The Lion King 1½, the romantic scene where the song was originally featured also had the song playing, but with a difference: interspersed with the romantic scenes were short comedic shots of Timon and Pumbaa trying to disrupt Simba andNala's night out.
he song was once planned to be sung only by Timon and Pumbaa, but Elton Johndisliked the comical nature of the concept, as he had wanted to make a wholly romantic Disney song.
Disney didn't even plan on using the song in the movie originally. It was only at the insistence of Elton that the company included it in the movie.
Later, the song was planned to be sung this time only by Simba and Nala but in the end the idea was scrapped again and the final result was the song mainly sung by an off-screen voice (Kristle Edwards) with short lines from Simba (Joseph Williams) and Nala (Sally Dworsky), and the beginning and end parts by Timon (Nathan Lane) and Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella).[2] It also included African vocals, that while mostly muted in the on-screen version, were much more prominently featured in the audio-only releases.
