YouTube Music Video: Juice Newton – ‘Angel Of The Morning’ (1981)

A few days ago, I came across a rerun of Deadpool (2016) on some cable channel. As many of you, the soundtrack of the opening scene contains a song that sounded familiar. After a bit of searching on intertubes, I realized it was ‘Angel of the Morning’ by Juice Newton from 1981. While her version is a cover of the original version from 1967 or 1968, it is the most famous version- by a long shot. I cannot resist pointing out that most contemporary popular american entertainment (films, music etc) is recycled stuff from the era between 1940 and the early 2000s. Says a lot about the cultural sterility of past two decades, doesn’t it?

Enjoy! Comments?
