Your lips were made for kisses so tender
I'm almost in love tonight
When we are close, my heart says surrender
I'm almost in love tonight

And here under the spell of evening
I long to hold you tight
Heaven is near, why think of tomorrow
I'm almost in love tonight

It may be just the spell of evening
I long to hold you tight
Heaven is near, why think of tomorrow
I'm almost in love tonight

Almost in love

A definite 5-star song. It's amazing, you have to listen to so much crap as to his soundtracks and you get something as great as this on those rare occasions.

I have always liked this song. I prefer the full, extended intro. All songs from this movie are above par as movie songs go.

This is such a beautiful and underrated ballad and Elvis' rendition of it was spectacular. I've never skipped it. It's from my sixth most favorite Elvis movie "Live A Little, Love A Little" and I love all four songs from that 1968 film.

A very interesting movie ballad from LALLAL. I like all the songs from this movie and I really feel "Wonderful World" had a bit more commercial appeal for a 45 than this one did, but this is still a strong track. Elvis' voice has a richness that most of his other movie ballads don't have and it has a very adult feel to it. I always thought this song and "Who Am I" from "Speedway" sounded more like Elvis' 70's ballads than the other movie ballads. 4 1/2 stars.

I always cringe when I see the name Randy Starr connected with an Elvis song.His record isn't good at all but this one is quite good.Completely different.

If something good came out of the "Movie Years" it was Elvis developing into the quintessential ballad singer. This is one of those great ballads. Love this song.

Randy Starr wrote the lyrics to an already existing song. I always liked it.

Another ballad done to perfection with that smooth, soulful voice which takes us on a brief and enjoyable emotional journey. I think he is now recognised as having a massive vocal talent, even grudgingly by the non believers.

Nice smooth vocal from Elvis, with a nice rhythm. This song should have been featured on some of the "Love" CD collections through the years.

The closest Elvis got to Bossa Nova was this great song (not Bossa Nova Baby--also a great song, just not a bossa nova). Steve V mentioned Sinatra's collaboration with Jobim already, and he is right on the money. In my opinion, every song from Live a Little, Love a Little was a winner, but I especially love this one. During his lifetime, and even now, Elvis never got the respect as a singer/vocalist that Sinatra had/has. I'm glad we have this one song, but I would have loved to hear Elvis tackle some Jobim tracks, like "How Insensitive" or "Dindi". He could have done them very very well as Almost In Love shows.

In the usual Elvis way, he has taken a mediocre song and made it sound great. Not one I would hunt out and play too often but I would not skip it either.

Great song with that fabulous ELVIS voice. I welcomed that single very much as it had on both sides songs that fit my taste. Of course it did not follow the trend or styles of the period, but I didn't like those anyway. Pop music was about all one could hear on the radio and those who were not in that leaque were ignored. And if one thinks that was all great . . . listen again or rather don't. The time was right for a change and that was at hand (NBC TV Special). Up till that time I enjoyed this lovely balad and the up tempo (at that time underrated) A Little Less Conversation.

This is a real good song although not single material for 1968. Remember the Sinatra/Jobim LP of 1967? Well this fits right in with that style and that is considered one of his best albums. I'm not saying Elvis should have cut an LPs worth of this material, but this is a real good song, just not single material. Of course ALLC the flip side, was good single material but it was way too short and no one was playing Elvis music on the radio in 1968 before the TV special.

Heard it first on a camden LP. Not an 'every day song' but a good song non the less.
