When I hear Bryan Ferry start singing Smoke gets in your eyes I always think it's gonna be I believe in you.
More so than when the Platters did it.

Google gave a couple of quick corresponding results:
“I Believe In You” followed, a gorgeous ghost of a song that tipped a mischievous hat toward the old ballad “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,”
“I Believe In You”- The lyrics to this song, which borrows it’s opening phrasing from “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"

But when you hear the rest of the words (and the tune), they too sound as an inspiration.

They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
I of course replied
Something here inside
Can not be denied

They, said some day you'll find
All who love are blind
When you heart's on fire
You must realize
Smoke gets in your eyes

So I chaffed them, and I gaily laughed
To think they would doubt our love
And yet today, my love has gone away
I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your eye

Jerry Garcia recorded Smoke Gets In Your Eyes toward the end of his life.

Right, I saw that. They did share some musical roots.
