Odie started singing “Send Me an Angel” the other day and I wanted to know who sang it. We went to our ’80s authority, DAndy Malec, who didn’t know off the top of his head, but promised to report back in short order. True to his word, I received this information a short while ago:
The answer to the trivia question yesterday, who sang “Send Me an Angel,” is Real Life, a band from Melbourne, Australia. They didn’t have the staying power of AC/DC or Men at Work, but nevertheless produced a great hit. The song was later redone by several bands including Scorpions, Thrice, and a host of punk bands.
When you don’t have the staying power of Men at Work, that’s saying something.
