Elvis Presley Song:

Angel (1962)

(Music and lyrics by Sid Tepper & Roy Bennett)

Angel is one of the songs in Elvis' movie "Follow That Dream". It is a soft, slow ballad, with Jordanaires as background singers.

You can find this song on the soundtrack album of the movie Follow That Dream.

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

I thought this song was from "Wild In the Country," not "Follow that Dream," but I'm wrong; it is from "Follow that Dream." I get the two movies confused because I actually thought they were quite good, compared to some of the weaker plots in movies that Elvis had to endure. These two are my Elvis movie favorites, and the better story lines gave Elvis a chance to use his acting skills, which were wonderful--very natural, yet engaging. I must have listened to "Angel" alot back then; it has been a song in my head for over 50 years! But I don't buy movie soundtracks, and it took me awhile to find the song on a CD mix--it's on a great CD, "Love, Elvis," and also on "Elvis--Love Songs." Both CDs are full of beautiful ballads, including the covers he did of other artist's songs of the late 60's and 70's. He WAS the music of the 20th century; I doubt any musical eras to come will ever see an artist with such influence and power.

Very soft and pretty!
