The late '90s and early 2000s obsession with angels
This weekend, I was listening to the radio, and a Dido song from her album "No Angel" came on. It led me down a rabbit hole, which led me to realize: the late '90s and early 2000s were obsessed with angels.
Just a few that popped up in pop culture:
Brandy's Angel of Mine
Sarah MacLachlan's Angel
Robbie Williams' Angels
Train's Calling All Angels
U2's If God Will Send His Angels
City of Angels
Angel in Buffy
Angels & Demons
And don't forget the character angels, like Michael, Meet Joe Black, everyone in Dogma, and, of course, Jenna Elfman in Can't Hardly Wait.
Meanwhile, I can't think of a single angel from the last 10 years. What was it about the '90s and early 2000s that made pop culture so obsessed with angels??
