"Falling in Love with Love" is a show tune from the Rodgers and Hart musical The Boys from Syracuse, where it was introduced by Muriel Angelus. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1938.[1] The song is set to a waltz, but the lyrics "remind his [Hart's] listeners of the show's skeptical tone".[2]


In the 1940 musical film, it was performed by Allan Jones.

It was sung by Bernadette Peters in Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (1997) as the Stepmother.
