Jimi Hendrix– “Angel”
From Cry of Love
Today I am choosing a Jimi Hendrix song Glenn introduced me to when we first started dating. Angel is an amazing song. Musically, lyrically, vocally… it just grabs your attention and holds it.
This song has an amazing groove and a rougher edge of soul.
Obviously Jimi was one of the great innovative guitarists and performers of classic rock, but I love this softer more soulful side to him as well.
My favorite lyric in the song is:
Angel came down
From heaven yesterday,
Stayed with me just long enough
To rescue me....
And she told me a story yesterday;
About the sweet love
Between the moon and the deep blue sea.
Then she spread her wings high over me.
She said, I’ll come back again to see you tomorrow....
