Bubbling under: Angel (Annie Lennox)

This song is listed here in the Annie Lennox (image credit) solo version, but the earlier version of her with the Eurythmics is just as good. The beautiful ballad Angel is a moving song allegedly about her mother ("Underneath this canopy of snow, where fifty-seven winters took their toll") who committed suicide rather than facing a cruel end as cancer patient. Annie re-recorded it solo in 1997, after the death of Princess Diana.
