Am I ready, can my heart be true?
Am I ready, to fall in love with you

One love, one girl,one dream shared by two
Am I ready, to fall in love with you

I have touched your lips,and now I know
I would be a fool, to let you go

Should I, could I, how I wish I knew
Am I ready, to fall in love with you

Should I, could I, how I wish I knew
Am I ready, to fall in love with you

Fall in love...with..you...
Recorded: 1966/02/16, first released on Spinout

If the song is Interchangeable with so many other movie ballads, as suggested earlier, maybe a Movie ballad medley.. would work, with a nice musical overdub. If anything, it would be a nice bonus track to a Love song Album collection.

An innocuous ballad,fairly typical of Elvis' movie songs in the late 60s. I never play it but at least it was well penned.

Good song, believe it or not, I consider Spinout Elvis' best 60's soundtrack album. I like it much more than GI Blues or BLue Hawaii. Sure each of those has a few GREAT songs on it, but overall, I would rather listen to Spinout. GI Blues and Blue Hawaii have a few 5 star songs and a bunch of 2 star songs, Spinout has 3 and 4 stars songs throughout and the bonus songs are all 5 star.

Yes another film ballad without beong innovative but nevertheless an enjoyable experience. A nice tune excellently performed by the main man showing great vocal control.

A good ballad, but a song that kind of get lost between many similar ballads, it deserves 3,5 stars though.

This is such an excellent, underrated and overlooked ballad and Elvis' rendition of it was spectacular. It's easily one of Elvis' very best movie songs from the 1960's.

In the 60s Elvis voice was outstanding for romantic ballads and this pretty recording proofs it once more. The song has a close and personal feeling to it, but is not remarkable as a few pretty movie ballads were released each year. Three stars from me.

I very much like the song, but yes, it sounds like about 5 other pretty movie ballads. I do, however, like how upfront Elvis' voice is on this track. It really shows how flawlessly he sang. I mean, you can hear every breath; you can practically hear his lips moving! Honestly, it is probably bad production, but I appreciate that a few of the soundtrack ballads ("Please Don't Stop Loving Me" is another one) are so up-close and personal. Truly a voice that transcended the material.

Nice but they all sounded the same at this point. Where was the innovation? Oh yeah, a look at the song writers says it all.

The California Holiday album is hardly a classic Presley release save for the outstanding bonus tracks, All that I am and this simple ballad. The problem was by this time nearly all Elvis' film ballads began to sound alike.

I have always found the backing a little OTT on this but it does not detract too much from what is a lovely song, beautifully delivered by our man.

Interchangeable with so many other movie ballads. Nothing outstanding.

A pleasant but unmemorable ballad.

One of two strong ballads from Elvis 22nd movie "Spinout" (the other being "All That I Am"). This one is sung with a touch of vulnerability and Elvis is in fine voice. A three star song given five star treatment by Elvis for a total of four stars.

Pretty ballad...Elvis always sang these kind of songs well.
