This month the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour is featuring Eye of the Sword by Karyn Henley, which sounds to me a lot like the kind of fantasy novel I don't read. I am, however, reliably informed that it has angels in it, so, obviously, it being Tuesday and all....
It's the Top Ten Angel Tunes!
10. Shaggy: Angel
I'm sure he didn't sound like that in What's New Scooby Doo....
9. Belly: Angel
And we open on some good old-fashioned jangly indie pop like they had in the 90s.
8. Space: Avenging Angels
In the top
ten purely for its use of the phrase 'kick-ass angels'. Which, as of
this moment, I've bagged as a title of a forthcoming story.
7. Nightwish: Wish I Had An Angel
Finnish symphonic rock, just because we can.
6. Spiritualized: Angel Sigh
Followed by more early 90s indie weirdness, this time with more of a prog-rock edge.
5. Madonna: Angel
Ah, happy days, when she wasn't just too darned old to be doing this stuff.
4. Ash: Angel Interceptor
That should be the title of a story too.
3. Moby: Homeward Angel
And on to the now traditional electronic offering... We should get Moby on here more often, shouldn't we?
2. U2: Angel of Harlem
Some cracking tunes this week, if I do say so myself! Classic U2 is often hard to beat though...
1. Eurythmics: There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart)
But this song, which will forever be linked to a wet family holiday in Cornwall when I was eleven, was always a shoe-in for the top spot.
Now Spotify the Top Ten to check out what aural delights you're missing out on - oh, and why not browse some of these links, because I'm sure there was a reason for all this self-indulgent Spotifying...
