The Angel is Billie Holiday, this song is really just a love song to Billie Holiday and the genius of her voice juxtaposed against the backdrop of Harlem. You get the sense of Holiday's voice rising above the streets angelically yet inextricably tied to the harshness of the city

beautiful lines to an overrated song that actually appears in Bridget Jones, only that with a more jazzy version. The one of U2 is raunchy and lovely. It's the perfect song to wake up in a camping and go profess your love to someone in pjs with little bears on it. Oh, and the meaning is there all along. Just to see that love is there, it's just sometimes too obvious to see it clearly.
