Slow Jam Of The Night ~

by

“Angel” by Anita Baker is one of my all time favorite “Quiet Storm” slow jams! It’s a classic throwback 80’s song that will never get old and it’s also our Quiet Storm Song of The Night!

The Songstress is the debut solo album by the American R&B/soul singer Anita Baker. It was originally released in 1983 by Beverly Glen Music, and was Baker’s only album for that label prior to signing with Elektra Records with whom she had a string of hit albums. The Songstress was not a commercial success upon its initial release, though the album met with moderate success on the R&B charts.

Baker became a major international success after signing with Elektra Records (a division of Warner Music Group) in 1986, and Elektra acquired the rights to The Songstress and re-released it with a new cover in 1991. Between 1992-2007, the album sold 307,000 copies in the US according to SoundScan figures.

Lyrics

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

If I could I’d give you the world
Wrap it all around you
Won’t be satisfied with just a piece of this heart

My angel, oh, angel
You’re my angel, oh, angel

Dreams are dreams, some dreams come true
I found a real dream, baby, when I found you
You’re so strong, but tender too

You’re my angel, oh, angel
You’re my angel, oh, angel

Love like ours is Heaven-sent
Each day a day to remember
I feel so safe, feel secure with you

You give me love, you keep right on giving
Fill me up, baby, with the joy of living
When things get tough, I can always turn to you

You’re my angel, oh, angel
You’re my angel

Love the way we touch, I love the way it feels
Every time you’re near me, my poor heart just won’t keep still
No doubt about that this love I feel is real
Ask me to go with you, you know I will

Hold me near, hold me tight
Only you can make it real, only you make it all right
Just let me know that I am special to you

My angel, oh, angel
You’re my angel, oh, angel

You’re my angel, oh, angel
You’re my angel, oh, angel
