Words & Music:
I'm falling in love, tonight
Somehow, I know
The beautiful world tonight
Is sharing, it's glow
When love let me down before
I said I was through
But I'm falling in love tonight
'till you walked by
I laughed and played the game
One last kiss, then goodbye
And out went the flame
But somehow, you've changed me dear
This time, it's true
I'm falling in love tonight

A second tier ballad from the movie "It Happened At The World's Fair" that was actually a fan favorite at the time. This song is not as good as the other two ballads from this movie, "World Of Our Own" and "They Remind Me Too Much Of You", but it is still pleasant.
I like this ballad a lot with the organ, and the overall intimate feel that is emitted, and rate this the second best offering from the film. It is even better when one adds echo
This is such a beautiful ballad and it's from my second most favorite Elvis movie "It Happened At The World's Fair". The other thirteen songs that Elvis recorded that were written by Don Robertson are "Anything That's Part Of You", "I Met Her Today", "I Really Don't Want To Know", "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here", "I'm Counting On You", "I'm Yours", "Love Me Tonight", "Marguerita", "No More", "Starting Today", "There's Always Me", "They Remind Me Too Much Of You" and "What Now, What Next, Where To".
The organ sounds corny, but the song is lovely and Elvis sounds great. The organ is probably played by Robertson himself, although Dudley Brooks also played organ on the session.
A lovely little ballad, so well sung! When you take a look at the list that ElvisSacramento made up, it surely makes a great playlist. Elvis did very well with Don Robertson's songs!
The song that leads off side 2 of the soundtrack album, "It Happened at the World's Fair", the shortest album I think he ever released as far as time. This song, if it weren't for the tacky organ, I think would really be much, much better. It sticks in my mind. I like it.
I really like the song. Organ doesn't bother me. 4 stars. From one of my fave soundtrack LPs. 4 stars.
A really fine ballad from one of the better soundtracks. I often listen to this soundtrack and don’t skip one of them. The organ gives it a really unique sound and doesn’t bother me. 3 stars
I dont care how lovely he sang it, its an assembly line boring song. The soundtrack really disappointed me in 63. Where was the Elvis I grew up with? This album was the first time Elvis fans I knew started to abandon him. His voice was great, but music was changing and Elvis now seem dated even before the Brits. A little of the fire came back with Viva, but it was a long haul until 1968. 1 star if that. The man should have been touring and putting out killer albums with the best writers in the business.
No disrespect to Steve V but judging by his comment above mine, it appears he's been in lockstep with the narrow hippie ethic that dismissed Elvis Presley's post-Army flicks out of hand. I personally view It Happened at the World's Fair to be one of the King's better films and soundtrack LPs, although it is admittedly brought down by "Cotton Candy Land" and How Would You Like to Be," two selections of trifle designed to be heard nowhere outside the confines of the movie. The rest of the album is superb, though, with its stand-outs being the lead single "One Broken Heart for Sale" (written by Otis Blackwell & Winfield Scott, the team that had cranked out the lead single from Girls! Girls! Girls!, "Return to Sender"), and the pair of Don Robertson crooners "I'm Falling in Love Tonight" and "They Remind Me Too Much of You." Other highlights for me include the breezy opening "Beyond the Bend," Sid Tepper & Roy Bennett's "Fever" rewrite "Relax," the mid-tempo "A World of Our Own," and the last but not least, the utterly stupendous finale "Happy Ending."
Not as good as Don Robertson's other ballad from It Happened at the World's Fair ("They Remind Me Too Much of You") or the mid-tempo "A World of Our Own," but this is still a first-rate ballad. Five stars.
