Angels on My Shoulder Trivia Quiz

The editors can't decide what to have at the top of their Christmas tree for 2018, so I've made up my mind to have an angel. Can you match these 'angel' titles with their singers? Some UK bias.

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Pretty Little Angel Eyes (1978)

Answer: Showaddywaddy

The band, with eight members, got together in 1973 in Leicester. Having appeared on one of the UK's early talent shows, 'New Faces', they began a long run of success with their own song - 'Hey Rock and Roll' - being a top ten hit in 1974. They then began covering older material, such as 'Three Steps to Heaven' and 'Under the Moon of Love', the latter being their only number one UK Singles Chart hit in 1976. 'Pretty Little Angel Eyes' was originally recorded by Curtis Lee in 1961, with Showaddywaddy's version reaching number five in the UK in 1978.
2. Kiss an Angel Good Mornin (1971)

Answer: Charley Pride

Charley Pride is best known as a country music artist, and has had numerous number one singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. 'Kiss an Angel Good Mornin'' is one of those number ones, but it also did well on the US Billboard Hot 100, reaching a respectable number twenty-one on this chart. For non country music lovers, this is the song most associated with the singer.

It hardly does his career justice, though - he has more than twenty number one country music hits.
3. Angel (2000)

Answer: Shaggy

The song took the melody from 'Angel of the Morning', recorded by Juice Newton and many others, and featured Rayvon on guest vocals. It became a hit, reaching the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Charts in 2001, and being equally popular around the world.
4. Heaven Must be Missing an Angel (1976)

Answer: Tavares

The band, like the Jacksons, consisted of five brothers and Tavares was their actual surname. They originally performed as Chubby and the Turnpikes, from 1959, before using the Tavares name from 1973. Their main chart success came on the Billboard Hot R&B listings, although they did get 'It Only Takes a Minute' to number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1975. 'Heaven Must be Missing an Angel (Part 1)', to give it its official title, reached number four on the UK Singles Chart. I can find no reference to Part 2.
5. Angel of Harlem (1988)

Answer: U2

'Angel of Harlem' first appeared on U2's album 'Rattle and Hum'. The lyrics are a tribute to jazz singer Billie Holiday, with mentions of New York City sites and other jazz musicians. It was released as a single in 1988, reaching number nine on the UK Singles Chart and number fourteen on the US Billboard Hot 100.
6. Angel Eyes (1979)

Answer: Roxy Music

Roxy Music, led by Bryan Ferry, had a great deal of success in their home country of the UK, but made little impact in the USA. The band's first hit came in 1972 with 'Virginia Plain' and other hits include 'Love is the Drug' (1975) and 'Oh Yeah' (1980). 'Angel Eyes' reached number four on the UK Singles Chart in August 1979, and was also successful in the Netherlands.
7. Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear to Tread) (1963)

Answer: Ricky Nelson

The song, with lyrics provided by Johnny Mercer, dates from 1940 when Frank Sinatra recorded it while vocalist for the Tommy Dorsey band. Ricky Nelson joined a very long list of artists with his 1963 version, which reached number twelve in both the USA and UK, on the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Charts respectively. Ricky, or Rick, as he preferred to be called in later years, began his long career on his parents' show 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet' while still a child, before becoming a pop singer in his late teens.

Other hits include 'Poor Little Fool' (1958) and 'Garden Party' (1972).
8. There Must be an Angel (Playing with my Heart) (1985)

Answer: Eurythmics

Eurythmics were a duo - Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart - who performed together from 1980 until 1990, with a couple of reunions subsequently. Their first big hit came in 1983 with 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)', which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK Singles Chart. 'There Must be an Angel', by contrast was a number one in the UK, while reaching only number twenty-two in America.
9. Johnny Angel (1962)

Answer: Shelley Fabares

Shelley began her career as an actress, appearing with Donna Reed in 'The Donna Reed Show' between 1958 and 1963. It was during this time that she branched out into music, on the back of her acting success. 'Johnny Angel' was by far her biggest hit, reaching the top of the US Billboard Hot 100.

Shelley herself seemed bemused by this, and is quoted as saying 'I never could sing'. Her acting career continued, though, with appearances in the television series 'Coach'. On the big screen, she appeared with Elvis Presley in three films, 'Girl Happy' (1965), 'Spinout' (1966) and 'Clambake' (1967).
10. Angels (1997)

Answer: Robbie Williams

Shaggy might have been satisfied with one 'Angel' but Robbie decided to go for the multiple option. Williams was a member of the group Take That for five years, before leaving in 1995 to start a solo career. This move proved a success for him, and he has had numerous hit singles in the UK, other European countries and in Australia. 'Angels' reached number four on the UK Singles Chart in late 1997.

Although his departure from Take That was somewhat acrimonious, time has mellowed the members and Robbie does make occasional appearances with the remaining members.
