I knew there were a lot of popular songs called ‘Angel’ or ‘Angels’ or with the word in the title, but I didn’t realise there were nearly a hundred; looking through the list there were thirty odd whose artist I knew, and from those maybe a half-dozen of actual songs I knew… plus some other artists not on the list who sang dreary dirges about angels… oh, I’ve given it away, most of the songs which have angel in the title in my biased opinion are pretty ghastly – even those by singers I like! And even those which aren’t dreary dirges, like Annie Lennox, I really just don’t like.

Just about the only exception is Willie Nelson… and here is his song by Raul Malo…
