Angel On My Shoulder

Album: Strobelite Seduction (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the third single from American DJ and record producer Kaskade's fifth album, Strobelite Seduction. The song features the vocals of Tamra Keenan, who has also performed with the likes of Future Funk Squad, David Morales and Oakenfold.
  • Kaskade discussed the inspiration for the song with Back Beat Seattle: "It is a beautiful song – I actually didn't write that one. I wrote the music, Tamra Keenan wrote the lyrics and the melody. She flew to San Francisco and recorded it with me three years ago. It's a song about addiction. I haven't worked with that many other songwriters. Typically it's me writing something and collaborating with Finn. It's a different process when you're working with an actual songwriter. It can be a song about addiction to anything. I'm sure she was singing about something personal."
