List Rules Songs with angels in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about angels as a subject.

This is a ranked list of all songs about angels, as voted on by music fans like you. Although angels are the subject of these tracks, they aren't necessarily related to Christianity or religion in any way. For example, Hinder's "Lips of an Angel" is about cheating on a spouse, and Slayer's "Angel of Death" is well...let's just say it's a Slayer song. Some of the songs included below may have the words "angel" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about angels as a subject or theme. Common lyrics in angel songs include descriptions of wings and flying, as angels fly to earth from the heavens above. In music angels are typically women, although occasionally a man will be depicted as an angel as well.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the angel songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
