The Beauty of Angels

Can't say I know much about The Jazz Butcher, never quite got the vibe way back...except Angels. Was and remains a very firm favourite. Drinking brandy, listening to The Jacobites, Cowboy Junkies and Dylan, the night rounded off with Angels. Heavenly days.

Video Version

Video Version is a truncated version of the song...
And in my opinion, the edit removes all the build and punch that the full version has. (For maximum impact)
A gorgeous tune.

funny, I made a somewhat similarly obscure connection with "Wings of Desire"

lynch, soul coughing, modest mouse

"workin' on leavin the livin'" off the album "building nothing out of something" by modest mouse also contains the lyric "in heaven, everything is fine," with the addition "in heaven everything's alright.
some vague connections to lynch and soul coughing: the girl in the furnace who sings "in heaven.." looks somewhat familiar to a girl on the cover of "ruby vroom" an ablum of soul coughing. i've found intuitive connections between this album and "mulholland drive" i.e. references to los angeles and cadillacs "overturning down a cliff on televsision." these connections are more subliminal, or superliminal at that, but interesting none the less.

Angels - the video

The video for Angels was memorable - black & white if I recall. I wonder if it's viewable on the web these days.

I like your comment about it being one of the top ten most beautiful songs ever. I listened to two live versions and the studio version yesterday and was thinking it was the most beautiful song ever written and WAY underappreciated, and then I see your comment today. Nice.

Une des 10 plus belle chanson pop jamais écrite. Il faut la rééditer et surtout tourner un VRAI clip vidéo.

One of the 10 most beautiful pop song ever written. It needs to be republished and made into a video.

It will be at my funeral, no question, and I so
want to cover it, but will I do it justice?

RE: *Why does everyone seem to love the song 'Angels' so much? It drips with cloying, finger-down-the-throat sappiness, and there are so many better Fish cuts out there*

I used to think that. Keep listening... You'll get it one day. (Hint: Afghanistan.)

I like this song. Ater all I like the whole songs of the album, 'Distressed Gentlefolk'.

I said goodbye to a great friend last Saturday.
Jon Howard (some may have known him as Doug Mallard) Music was a large part of his life, especially the JBC, it got him through some rough times. I will never forget him.
"Angels" was played during his service and a letter was read that butch wrote him a few years back.
Thank you for writing such a beautiful song.
