Elvis Presley needs little introduction. A true icon, he revolutionized the music scene in the 1950s with his electrifying blend of rock and roll, rhythm and blues, and gospel influences. His charismatic stage presence, smooth vocals, and suggestive dance moves sent shockwaves through the conservative culture of the time, forever altering the landscape of popular music.

Angel, originally released in 1961, showcases a different side of Elvis. While his career was undeniably marked by high-octane performances and rockabilly anthems, Angel reveals a depth of emotion often overshadowed by his more energetic persona. This particular version, the New Edit 4K, offers a fresh take on the classic ballad.

The song itself is a beautiful composition, penned by Hank Cochran. Cochran, a prolific songwriter, was known for his country-tinged melodies and heartfelt lyrics. Angel perfectly encapsulates his signature style. The opening melody, a gentle, melancholic piano line, sets the stage for Elvis’s powerful vocals.

Elvis’s delivery in Angel is captivating. He sheds the bravado often associated with his rock and roll persona and instead pours his heart into the lyrics. His voice takes on a tenderness that resonates with the song’s message of longing and devotion. The lyrics themselves are simple yet evocative, painting a picture of a love lost and a yearning for its return. Lines like “Since you’ve been gone, there’s a heartache in every song” and “You’re my angel, you’re my prayer” speak directly to the listener, evoking a sense of vulnerability and emotional honesty.

Lyrics

“Angel”

Angel, with those angel eyes
Come and take this earth boy
Up to paradise

Angel, may I hold you tight?
Never kissed an angel
Let me kiss one tonight

If I said “I love you”
Would I be speaking out of turn?
I’m only human, but I’m willing to learn

Angel, make my wish come true
Let me be in heaven here on earth with you

Angel, never kissed an angel
Let me kiss one tonight

If I said “I love you”
Would I be speaking out of turn?
I’m only human, but I’m willing to learn

Angel, make my wish come true
Let me be in heaven here on earth with you
