12 Plays of Christmas – Day 6 – Angel of Harlem by U2

19 Dec

 

Ok, so it’s not strictly a festive song but it did come out as a single in December 1988, featuring the opening lines:

It was a cold and wet December day
When we touched the ground at JFK
Snow was melting on the ground
On BLS I heard the sound
Of an angel

New York, like a Christmas tree
Tonight this city belongs to me
Angel

There’s something about ‘Angel of Harlem’ that always reminds me of Christmas and, although I may be  in the minority, it’s one of my favourite U2 songs.  Enjoy!
