Angel (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Angel is a fictional character created by Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt for the American fantasy television programs Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off series Angel. The character is portrayed by actor David Boreanaz. As introduced in Buffy in 1997, Angel is a love interest for heroine Buffy Summers ( Sarah Michelle Gellar), a young woman whose destiny as " the Slayer" is to fight the forces of evil, such as vampires and demons. However, their relationship is complicated by the fact that Angel is himself a vampire cursed with remorse and a human soul, which motivates him to assist Buffy in her duties as Slayer. The character's popularity led to the production of the spin-off Angel, which follows the character's struggle towards redemption after moving to Los Angeles. In addition to the two television series, the character appears in the comic book continuations of both series, as well as much other expanded universe literature. Angel appears in the most television episodes of all the characters of both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, appearing in 167 episodes (57 in Buffy and all 110 in Angel).

In the character's backstory, Angel—originally known as Liam—was an 18th-century Irishman who after becoming a vampire and assuming the name Angelus became famous as the most sadistic vampire in European history. After angering a gypsy clan, he was cursed with his human soul, leading to great personal torment and the decision to resist the evil impulses that come with being a vampire. He later assumes the shortened name Angel, and over the course of Buffy and Angel he matures into an altruistic champion of mankind, and learns he is a central figure of several prophecies concerning an approaching apocalypse. Angel ended its five-year run in 2004. However, the canonical comic books Angel: After the Fall (2007–2009), Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight (2007–2011) and Angel & Faith (2011–2013) depict the character's continued story, in which he is caught up in events of cosmic proportion and must deal with the fallout from enormous mistakes he has made.

Season two of Buffy and season four of Angel feature storylines in which, deprived of his soul, he resumes his Angelus persona and torments and kills some of his allies. Academic literature concerning the character has often focused on the implications of Angel's dichotomous personality in the presence or absence of his soul, and the ways in which his relationship with Buffy conforms to and subverts the tropes of romantic drama and horror fiction.

Angel (coin)

The angel was an English gold coin introduced by Edward IV in 1465. It was patterned after the French angelot or ange, which had been issued since 1340.

"Angel" was released as a 12" single with " Into the Groove" in some countries and charted likewise. A music video was initially planned for the release, but was later cancelled. Instead a promotional video comprising clips from her previous videos was released in the United Kingdom.

Musically "Angel" consists of three chord ascending hook, which serves for the verse and chorus. It has vocal harmonies beneath the main chorus and the lyrics repeat the angel-like image of Madonna's saviour. Critical response to the song was mixed, with some music critics calling it a classic and others deeming it sub-par compared to Madonna's previous singles. "Angel" became the singer's fifth consecutive top-five single on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the top of its dance charts. It was also able to reach number-one in Australia and the top-five of the charts in Canada, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom.

"Angel" was McLachlan's second consecutive top five hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, debuting at number twelve, and then jumping to the top ten the following week, before peaking at number four. It remained at the top ten for nineteen weeks, and for twenty-nine weeks in the top 100. "Angel" was the eighteenth most successful song of 1999.

Angel (novel)

Angel is a novel by the English novelist Elizabeth Taylor first published in 1957.

It tells the life story of Angelica ("Angel") Deverell from her adolescence and first attempts at writing, through the course of her career as a successful writer of sensational romances, into her decline, old age and death. Although she finds fame and wealth and marries the love of her life, Angel is condemned to a life of isolation and disappointment: critics regard her work as absurd and her closest relationships—with her publisher, her husband, and her sister-in-law—are doomed by the inability of others to conform to her unrealistic view of life. Although Angel is in the main portrayed as a grotesque eccentric, she is frequently made to seem pathetic, if not tragic.

Angel is a fictional representation of the kind of temporarily popular writer of romances such as Marie Corelli, Ouida, or Ethel M. Dell. Matthew Walther argues that "the book is not really a roman à clef so much as it is a kind of horrifying anti-memoir, Taylor’s sounding of her own experience and dredging up her worst fears as a young female writer: mawkishness, philistinism, naïveté, stupidity, solipsism."

Angel was reprinted by Virago Press in 1984 with a new introduction by Paul Bailey.

In 2007, Angel was turned into a movie by French director François Ozon.

Angel was the February 2012 Classics Book Club Selection at The New York Review of Books. It was published in the NYRB Classics series on February 14, 2012, with an introduction by Hilary Mantel.

Angel (Two Tricky song)

Angel was the Icelandic entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, performed in English by Two Tricky. Just like last years entry, a version was recorded in Icelandic but was not commercially released.

The song is an up-tempo pop song, with the singer calling on the object of his affections to come to him and "fly me away". It appears from the lyrics that the pair had previously been together, in a relationship which did not end well.

The song was performed second on the night (following the Netherlands' Michelle with Out On My Own and preceding Bosnia and Herzegovina's Nino Pršeš with Hano). At the close of voting, it had received 3 points, placing 22nd (equal last) in a field of 23.

Due to the rapidly expanding contest, the decision was taken to restrict entry to the 2002 Contest to the countries that had finished in the top 15 of the 2001 Contest, plus the countries that had been excluded from the 2001 event due to a low five-year point average from 1996–2000; neither group included Iceland which was therefore relegated from the 2002 Contest. As a "passive country" (one which broadcasts the Contest without participating in it), Iceland was permitted to return to the fold in 2003. Thus, the song was succeeded as Icelandic representative at the 2003 Contest by Birgitta with Open Your Heart.

Angel (Chiara song)

"Angel" was the Maltese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, performed in English by Chiara.

In contrast to the up-tempo styles dominating the Contest, the song is a solo love ballad. Chiara sings to her lover that, no matter what, she will be "your angel". The chorus culminates with the line "I'm always here for you".

In keeping with the lyrical simplicity of the song, Chiara performed solo onstage with a simple musical score backing her.

As Malta had finished the 2004 Contest in the top 12, the song was pre-qualified for the final. Here, it was performed third, following the United Kingdom's Javine with " Touch My Fire" and preceding Romania's Luminiţa Anghel & Sistem with " Let Me Try". At the close of voting, it had received 192 points placing 2nd in a field of 24 and pre-qualifying Malta for the final at the next Contest. In the voting, Malta received only one 12-point set, from Russia, a low number for a Eurovision runner-up.

The result was also Malta's best in Contest history, equalling Ira Losco's second place with " 7th Wonder" but exceeding that song's score of 164 points (and indeed Chiara's own score of 165 with " The One That I Love"). "Angel" managed to peak at #95 on the German Singles Chart Top 100.

The song appeared as a "favourite" on the CD and DVD sets produced to commemorate the Congratulations special in late 2005.

It was succeeded as Maltese representative at the 2006 Contest by Fabrizio Faniello with " I Do".

Angel (A-ha song)

"Angel in the Snow" is a song by A-ha, the second single from the album Memorial Beach. The single version of the song is only named "Angel". The song was written as a wedding present for Lauren, the wife of principal songwriter and guitarist Paul Waaktaar-Savoy. It is customary at Norwegian weddings that the husband-to-be professes his love for the bride in a unique way, and "Angel in the Snow" was Paul's contribution.

"Angel in the Snow" appears on Memorial Beach but was recorded during a dark time in A-ha's history. The band rarely plays any songs from this era in concert. The live version of the music video is not available but was performed at the Valhall concert which was released on DVD. It is unclear why it was the only song not included in the release. There were actually two versions of this video. The first version was very similar, but included a quick scene featuring two fans, one of whom won the MTV contest to be in the video. It was only shown a few times, and version two replaced it in rotation.

The single only reached number 41 in the UK Singles Chart. It also was going to be released in Germany but this was canceled.

An angel, especially according to Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, is a spiritual being superior to humans in power and intelligence. Angels are typically described as benevolent, dreadful, and endowed with wisdom and knowledge of earthly events, but not infallible; for they strive with each other, and God has to make peace between them. Most of them serve either as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits. They are studied in the theological doctrine of angelology. In Christian Science, the word "angel" is used to refer to an inspiration from God. The use of the term has extended to refer to artistic depictions of the spirits, and it is also used figuratively to refer to messengers and harbingers, and to people who possess high qualities of goodness, purity, selflessness, intelligence, and/or beauty.

Angels are referred to in connection with their spiritual missions; as for instance, the "angel which has redeemed", "an interpreter", "the angel that destroyed", "the messenger of the covenant", "angel of his presence", and "a band of angels of evil".

In fine art, angels are usually depicted as having the shape of human beings of extraordinary beauty; they are often identified using the symbols of bird wings, halos, and light.
