"Can't Stop Myself From Loving You" was a song written by ex-Easybeats members Harry Vanda & George Young in 1974 and was recorded by Johnny Cave, aka stage act William Shakespeare. It was Shakespeare's first hit in Australia,making the number 2 spot on the Australian charts. The song was largely aimed at the teenybopper market.
Shakespeare's follow up hit My Little Angel charted even better for him and made number one in early 1975.
In 1974, in the planning stages for the ABC TV Series Countdown, it was suggested that William Shakespeare host the show. However, this was rejected, with Ian Meldrum becoming a regular contributor instead. A number of guest hosts such as Shirley Strachan, John Paul Young and Daryl Braithwaite compèred the show in its early days on an ad hoc basis.
