Angel of the Morning

Happy TUNEBACK TUESDAY!! I recently (finally) watched Deadpool and LOVED it!! So today I’m tuning it back to the song featured in the opening credits, “Angel of the Morning” by Juice Newton.

ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: 1981

TRIVIA: Written by Chip Taylor, “Angel of the Morning” has been recorded numerous times and has been a hit single for various artists including Merrilee Rush, Juice Newton, Nina Simone, P.P. Arnold, Olivia Newton-John, The Pretenders/Chrissie Hynde, Dusty Springfield, Mary Mason, Melba Montgomery, Vagiant, Billie Davis, Bonnie Tyler, Rita Wilson and Skeeter Davis.

The song “Angel”, by reggae artist Shaggy, heavily samples “Angel of the Morning”, using the melody with different words for the sung refrain.

BONUS VIDEO: Here’s the intro to Deadpool. It’s pretty fantastic.

See you next Tuesday!!
