Scorpions – Send Me An Angel: 1990, Tribute to Isis?

Send Me an Angel” is a power ballad by German hard rock band Scorpions, released on their 1990 album Crazy World. Along with “Wind of Change“, it became the album’s signature track, reaching number 44 on Billboard Hot 100 Chart, number 8 on the Mainstream Rock Chart[1] and high chart positions in many European countries.

An orchestral version of the song was recorded for the 2000s orchestral album Moment of Glory that features vocals split with Italian famous singer Zucchero. An acoustic version of the song was also recorded for the 2001’s acoustic album Acoustica.

In 1994, the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, released the Cross Purposes studio album which contains the same burning angel in the design of the cover that the “Send Me an Angel” single has. Neither band has commented on the matter.

The song was covered by the German pop organist Klaus Wunderlich on one of his last albums, Keys for Lovers, and by electronicagroup Sleepthief featuring Canadian singer Kristy Thirsk on vocals. The song was featured on an episode of Cold Case (“Who’s Your Daddy?”).  source

“Send Me An Angel”

The wise man said just walk this way
To the dawn of the light
The wind will blow into your face
As the years pass you by
Hear this voice from deep inside
It’s the call of your heart
Close your eyes and your will find
The passage out of the darkHere I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

The wise man said just find your place
In the eye of the storm
Seek the roses along the way
Just beware of the thorns

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

The wise man said just raise your hand
And reach out for the spell
Find the door to the promised land
Just believe in yourself
Hear this voice from deep inside
It’s the call of your heart
Close your eyes and your will find
The way out of the dark

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star
Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star
