Are You Sincere by Andy Williams

Album: Lonely StreetReleased: 1958Charted:
  • Whether or not this is a rhetorical question, there is no question mark at the end. Written by Nashville-based songwriter Wayne Walker, who first recorded the song in 1957, it was then recorded by Andy Williams, who released it in January 1958 on the Cadence label. His became the most popular version of the song.
  • The French Elvis, Johnny Hallyday, put French lyrics to this song, rendering the title "Es-Tu Sincère." And although Hallyday did in fact record it himself, this French version was recorded initially in 1966 by Les Gendarmes. >>

  • Elvis Presley recorded this song in 1973, but his version wasn't released until 1979, after he had died. It appeared on the album Our Memories Of Elvis and reached #10 on the Country chart.
