Music for Monday: Angel, ‘The Winter Song’ (a hard rock holiday classic, 1978)

‘Hear the angels join the choir’
Angel, ‘The Winter Song,’ 1978

Androgynous glam rock band Angel were discovered by Gene Simmons of Kiss and signed to the Casablanca label in 1975. Angel dressed in white, featured a keyboard-laden sound and weren’t afraid to look pretty while rocking out.

The group never really cracked the big time but they did appear in the Jodie Foster flick Foxes and they scratched the top 50 with a cover of The Young Rascals’ “Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore.”

The song I’ve got for you today is in the holiday spirit and will likely blow your mind. At least a little bit. Here’s Angel with “The Winter Song” which appeared on the band’s 1978 L.P. White Hot.

“There’s a feeling in the air. Feel the spirit everywhere…”
