Angel, with those angel eyes
Come and take this earth boy
Up to paradise

Angel, may I hold you tight?
Never kissed an angel
Let me kiss one tonight

If I said "I love you"
Would I be speaking out of turn?
I'm only human, but I'm willing to learn

Angel, make my wish come true
Let me be in heaven here on earth with you

Angel, never kissed an angel
Let me kiss one tonight

If I said "I love you"
Would I be speaking out of turn?
I'm only human, but I'm willing to learn

Angel, make my wish come true
Let me be in heaven here on earth with you

Angel, Angel
Recorded: 1961/07/02, first released on EP

Lovely ballad, sung amazingly.

A fabulous ballad from one of his best movies. The tenderness, soul and feeling in this song with the beautiful vocal backing makes this a classic for me. I love his rock performances but they don't contain the inherent emotion of performances such as this - 5 stars

This is such a beautiful ballad and it should be way better known than it actually is. I rate this song 5 Stars.

Charming song and it would fit well in any Elvis movie. It is neither though a song that I can talk excited about how good it is, though Elvis sings it beautifully, like always in the early 60s. Three stars from me.

Very good, what a voice. I know a lot non-Elvis fans who love this one, so in that case 5 stars.

One of the better songs penned by this team and it is sung very very well, but its not all that special as a song I can see Elvis gaining a lot of female fans with this one but no rock fans can really dig this one.

Well-written ballad sung angelically by Elvis. Not one of the very best movie ballads; but darn good. 4 stars.

This is one of those type of ballads from the sixties that I find a bit too bland. The singing is of course faultless. What a voice. He doesn't use falsetto here just that lovely smooth high voice he employed at its best around this time. O think my issue is with the song being quite ordinary and the arrangement being along the same lines. I love, love, love Elvis' ballads but this tends to get skipped quite a lot.

The early 60's Elvis, my fav time, Every single, every Lp, and every EP hitting the charts. Indeed, Angel was on the 'Follow that Dream' EP that got into the Uk top 40 Singles charts. The song 'Angel'? Yes, i do like, in fact we called my daughter 'Angela'.

Even Michael Jackson, who had one of the most beautiful falsettos had to bow down to this one. No one had a falsetto like Elvis, not even Frankie Valli, who was one of my favorite singers of all-time.

Beautiful song, tenderly delivered by Elvis. Very underated.

Decent, nice ballad, nothing spectacular. Very well sung.

A decent song nothing special. It does however show that they could have showcased decent songs (like Angel) instead of the crap that was the majority of the movie songs.

This is lovely, been a favourite of mine for years.

Only one word can sum this up...Beautiful. TCB

Lovely song. The right tempo and the sweet voice of Elvis guarantees a beautifully transmitted sentiment. When we were young we could easily identify with it. Now-a-days I appreciate just as much, though from another angle. A regularly passing by song on my list!

I go to sleep every night playing this song on repeat. Try it...works like a charm.

One of my favorite movie love songs. Beautifully sing by Elvis.

A soft-pop catchy tune. Not one of my favourites, but very popular, not only among Elvis fans but also among the general public. Here in Portugal there was even a Portuguese version "Anjo" in 1965 from a Portuguese rocker Daniel Bacelar with Portuguese lyrics!

Nice melody...Elvis sings it very well...Millie Kirkham's high voice fits perfectly !

I think this is a good song and Elvis sang it well.I have the Cliff Richard version which is faster in tempo but Elvis' recording beats it by a mile.
