Angels are always in style. They have been a part of stories, ancient texts, songs, and word-of-mouth tales for thousands of years.

Did you know there are over 289 verses in the Bible with the word angel in them?

Music often seems to be the way angels connect with us, and most musical artists have sung or written about them at some point.

I've searched high and low and put together my favorite angel songs in the pop/rock/alternative genres. See if you can find your favorites on this list.

        "Angel Standing By" by Jewel is another good one.

        She wrote it during a time when she was homeless and felt vulnerable and at the same time protected.

        I like ANGEL songs that deal in sentiments and since I really like ballads, "Send Me An Angel" by Scorpions is the winner.

        Sad that "Engel" (German for Angel) by Rammstein didn't make the list. Actually, there's also "My Guardian Angel" by Tyler James Williams and "Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel" by Tavares.
