Today’s five was kind of inspired by Shawn Fogel‘s excellent performance at Bag Of Songs night at the M Room a couple weeks ago. In his set, Shawn covered an excellent song by the band Velo Deluxe, it was a song I hadn’t heard before and with a bit of Shawn’s help I now have a copy of the Velo Deluxe version of the songs Angels for you today. Velo Deluxe was formed by John Strohm of the Blake Babies and The Lemonheads. Keeping with the theme four more angel related songs to round out today’s picks. Enjoy.

1: Velo Deluxe – Angels
Buy Superelastic
2: Gin Blossoms – Angels Tonight
Buy Up And Crumbling
3: Patti Smith – Ask The Angels
Buy Radio Ethiopia
4: Rilo Kiley – The Angels Hung Around
Buy Under The Blacklight
5: Social Distortion – When The Angels Sing
