As the follow-up to Jones’ “Love Me Tonight“, “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” was reissued in 1969 in the US, reaching number six on the Hot 100 and number one on the Adult Contemporary chart.
This song was covered in 1978 by the FilipinoTom Jones impersonator Sam Sorono 1950–2008) on his Sings Tom Jones’ Greatest Hits album with EMI Records.
The song was also covered by Elvis Presley on the From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee album in 1976.
It was also recorded by Richard Marx (B-side to “The Way She Loves Me”), Timi Yuro on her 1968 album Something Bad on My Mind, Lena Martell, Charlie Hodges, and Marco T.
In 2019, Donegan’s son, Peter, auditioned for The Voice UK in which Tom Jones turned his chair for him. Jones when finding out and taken back by who he was, performed an impromptu duet of the song with Peter. Wiki
