Crew Cuts – Earth Angel

Today’s song of the day is “Earth Angel” by the Crew-Cuts.

Fun Facts:

  • “Earth Angel” is a simple, old-fashioned love song in which the singer declares his undying love for a woman and asks her to love him in return.
  • The song was originally written and recorded by The Penguins and released as their debut single in 1954.
  • Though popular, the reach of the song was limited, as most radio stations of the day segregated their playlists, and would only play what they called “race records” late at night.
  • The Crew-Cuts’ 1956 cover of the song was not limited in this way and reached number 3 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 list.
  • This was kind of the Crew-Cut’s thing. They made a name for themselves by doing covers of other people’s music in a modern popular style.
  • The Penguin’s original version of the song was doo-wop. The Crew-Cuts’ version was done as a pop-barbershop quartet song.
  • Although the Crew-Cuts brought the song to a wide, international audience, it’s the original Penguins’ version that has ultimately proved to be the most popular in the long run.
  • Most people know the song from the movie Back to the Future, in which it is covered in the original style in the big finale.

Lyrics:

(Genius

Earth angel, earth angel

Will you be mine?

My darling dear, love you all the time

I’m just a fool, a fool in love with you

Earth angel, earth angel

The one I adore

Love you forever, and evermore

I’m just a fool, a fool in love with you

I fell for you and I knew

The vision of your love, loveliness

I hope and I pray that someday

I’ll be the vision of your happiness

00:00/05:45

Oh, earth angel, earth angel

Please be mine

My darling dear, love you all the time

I’m just a fool, a fool in love with you

I fell for you and I knew

The vision of your loveliness

I hope and pray that someday

That I’ll be the vision of your happiness

Oh, earth angel, earth angel

Please be mine

My darling dear, love you all the time

I’m just a fool, a fool in love with you (You, you, you)
