BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
“Send Me an Angel” is a 1983 song by Real Life. Initially released on Real Life’s debut album Heartland, it is the band’s most known song. This version originally peaked in early 1984 in the US at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song’s biggest chart success, however, was in 1989, where an updated version entitled “Send Me An Angel ’89″ surpassed the original version from 1983. “Send Me An Angel ’89″ reached a peak of #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the summer of 1989 in the US. Both versions are very similar; the ’89 version is missing the louder “claps” in the chorus.
The song is about a man who asks himself whether he finds true love.
The song was also featured in the 1986 movie “Rad” a film about BMX racing and in a scene from 1987′s “Teen WolF Too” starring Estee Chandler and Jason Bateman.
