Angel Eyes

Roxy Music



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was the third single taken from British rock band Roxy Music's sixth studio album, Manifesto. The single release was a re-recorded version of the album track, and a 12" extended dance mix, (a relatively new format back in 1979) was also released. Frontman Bryan Ferry recalled to The Mail on Sunday June 28, 2009 that "after a short early career as an album track," this song "was reborn as a brilliant dance re-mix, anticipating a whole new world of music. It became a big hit as a single and in clubs."
This was the first record that Roxy Music made a specific promo video for.
By coincidence, at the same time this song was popular, the Swedish group Abba were also in the UK Top 10, with an unrelated song named "Angeleyes."
