“I Fall In Love Too Easily” is a tune written by Jule Styne in 1944. Lyrics were written by Sammy Cahn. It was introduced to the world by Frank Sinatra in the 1945 film “Anchors Aweigh”. This has become a popular ballad among jazz musicians and has been recorded and performed numerous times.
The lyricist Sammy Cahn had this to say about the tune: “This song was written one night in Palm Springs. When I sang the last line, Jule Styne looked over at me and said, ‘So. That’s it.’ I knew he felt we could have written on, but I felt I had said all there was to say, and if I had it to do over, I would stop right there again.”
This tune is most commonly played in the key of Eb major.
