About Are You Ready for Love

"Are You Ready for Love" is a song recorded by Elton John in 1977 and first released in the UK in 1979 on the EP The Thom Bell Sessions. It was written by Leroy Bell, Thom Bell and Casey James, and was originally produced in Philadelphia by Thom Bell (who had already produced a series of hits for The Spinners, The Delfonics and The Stylistics). While the song, "Mama Can't Buy You Love" from the EP charted in 1979, this song and the other track on the three-track 12-inch vinyl disc, "Three Way Love Affair", were only minor footnotes at the time. In 1989, MCA released a 6-track CD, The Complete Thom Bell Sessions, which contained a different mix of "Are You Ready for Love" in place of the one that appeared on the original 1979 EP. (The original "Thom Bell Sessions" EP mix did, however, surface — along with the EP's other two original tracks — as a b-side to a UK CD-single of "The Last Song" in 1992, issued as Rocket/Phonogram EJSCB-30). In 2003, it was remixed by Ashley Beedle and released as a 12" vinyl single on 25 August 2003. It gave John another No. 1 hit in the UK Singles Chart on its first week of its 2003 re-release, following his performing the song in a television advertisement promoting the new 2003–2004 football season for Sky Sports. It scored John his fifth UK No.1. The 2003 single's B-side is "Three Way Love Affair" (from the original EP) and also the full-length 1979 Version of "Are You Ready for Love". On some CD versions, the CD also contains a QuickTime version of a video for the song, with recording studio footage from 1977 with Elton recording his vocals.

From the mountain tops
To the valley below us
We'll serenade the world
With a lullaby
So the angels will know us
Angels will know us
