As you probably know by now, The Analog Kid lives for b-sides and non-album cuts. In this continuing series, I will share some of my favorite EPs and 12″ singles from over the years in their entirety. And since it’s digital, you don’t have to worry about correctly setting the turntable speed to  or 33⅓ or 45!

“Angel” is one of my favorite songs from Eurythmics. It’s a perfect pop song with an incredible vocal from Annie Lennox, yet somehow it didn’t even make the Top 100 when released as a single in the United States in 1990. “Angel” fared better in the U.K. (it reached #23), but I often wonder if the song’s lack of success contributed to the band’s extended hiatus. “Angel” was the last Eurythmics single for more than nine years, when the equally gorgeous “I Saved The World Today” reached #11 on the British charts.
