“Send Me an Angel” is a song by the German rock band Scorpions, recorded for their eleventh studio album, Crazy World (1990). The song was composed by Rudolf Schenker, written by Klaus Meine, and produced by Keith Olsen and the band. It was released as the album’s fourth and final single in September 1991. Along with “Wind of Change”, the song became the album’s signature track, reaching number 44 on Billboard Hot 100 Chart on 25 January 1992, number 8 on the Mainstream Rock Chart and high chart positions in many European countries. An orchestral version of the song was recorded for the 2000s orchestral album Moment of Glory that features vocals split with Italian singer Zucchero. An acoustic version of the song was also recorded for the 2001’s acoustic album Acoustica.
In 1994, the heavy metal band Black Sabbath released the Cross Purposes studio album which contains the same burning angel in the design of the cover that the “Send Me an Angel” single has. Neither band has commented on the matter.
