The Top Ten

Angel - Jackie Evancho
A wonderful song where Sarah McLachlan's carefully-crafted lyrics let the subject change. Still a song of loss, but also one of honor and remembrance. Jackie performed this on September 10th, 2009, at the "Hearts of Steel Campaign luncheon honoring the fallen heros of flight 93. Honored guests include General Tommy Franks, family of those on board flight 93. "Angel" was also included in Jackie's first PBS Great Performances special "Dream With Me - In Concert", and on her gold-certified studio album "Dream With Me", produced by David Foster.
Sung by an "angel"!
Angel sung by an Angel. Most beautiful voice I have ever heard. Jackie has an unlimited future ahead of her.
[Newest]The girl takes a haunting song about drug OD / suicide, and turns it into a sculpted masterpiece about a tormented heart and a remembrance of those whom we have lost.

2Angel - Sarah McLachlan
Love this song. Too bad about the subject matter though.
I like it she bases it on a lot of truth about life's complications in which we all endure.
The best one ever write

3Angel - Jimi Hendrix

4I'm No Angel - The Gregg Allman Band

5Angel - Aerosmith
Aerosmith might have been looked upon as devils in the 1970s, with their sleaze-rock sound, but this song, co-written with mega-pop songwriter Desmond Child and part of a long line of more pop-oriented singles, helped establish them as a mainstream juggernaut. 'Angel' is one of my all time favorite songs. This track is real rock wonder


6Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel - Tavares

7Angel - Madonna
Unlike the King of Rock & Roll’s love, the Queen of Pop’s is an "angel in disguise. ". Anyway, this song is very beautiful. Madonna always was my favorite sunger and always will be. She is new in every song


8Angel - Amanda Perez

9Send Me an Angel - Scorpions
"Send Me an Angel" is a power ballad by German heavy metal band Scorpions, released on their 1990 album Crazy World. I adore this wonderful track


10Teaching Angels How to Fly - Jackie Evancho
From her self-released CD & iTunes album "Prelude To A Dream".

The Contenders

11(You're The) Devil In Disguise - Elvis Presley
The girl in this Elvis Presley song looks, talks and walks like an ANGEL, but like most is hiding something below that innocent veneer. Good thing Elvis noticed or he’d be crying in the Heartbreak Hotel.


12Sweet Black Angel - Rolling Stones

13Like An Angel Passing Through My Room - ABBA
This song is so amazing and sung so beautifilly by ABBA's Frida that Madonna, Sissel Kyrljebo, and many others have done cover versions of this song. Nothing is as well done as Frida's version though.


14Sleeping Angel - Stevie Nicks

15Earth Angel - The Penguins
"Earth Angel" 1950s doo-wop songs have a dreamy, heaven-like quality to them, and the Penguins’ 1954 hit "Earth Angel" embodies this notion. It provided the perfect background music for George McFly and Lorraine Baines to kiss in "Back to the Future" and save Marty’s existence!


16Angel - Fleetwood Mac

17Angels - Robbie Williams

18Concrete Angel - Jackie Evancho
Jackie Evancho did this cover of Martina McBride's song on her self-produced "Prelude to a Dream" album when she was only 9 years old.
Hearing such a young child sing this already heart-tugging number took it to another level.
There is a YouTube video of this from 2009.

19Mountain Angel - Dolly Parton
"Mountain Angel" is another in a long line of amazing Dolly Parton songs. Dolly showed impressive vocal as always. What a Woman!


20Gothic Angel - Avril Lavigne
