dbo:abstract
  • Angelia è una power ballad scritta e cantata da Richard Marx, estratta come terzo singolo dal suo secondo album Repeat Offender. La canzone si posizionò al quarto posto della Billboard Hot 100 nel dicembre del 1989. Raggiunse inoltre la top 40 delle classifiche australiane e la top 50 delle classifiche del Regno Unito. In Italia è risultato il singolo di maggior successo di Richard Marx e si è piazzato al tredicesimo posto in classifica. In modo simile a quanto accaduto ai Fleetwood Mac per Rihannon, Marx si imbatté nel nome Angelia quasi per caso, ispirato da quello di un'assistente di volo incontrata mentre stava recandosi dalle parti di Dallas per un concerto. Nonostante all'epoca Marx fosse in procinto di sposarsi con Cynthia Rhodes, egli non aveva intenzione di comporre canzoni romantiche allegre, ma voleva parlare di amori non corrisposti e vecchie relazioni adolescenziali. Per la canzone venne girato un video musicale diretto da un allora semisconosciuto Michael Bay. (it)

On the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, "Angelia" peaked at #2 for several weeks behind the Linda Ronstadt/Aaron Neville duet "Don't Know Much". Richard Marx based the sound of "Angelia" on Def Leppard's 1983 album "Pyromania" and 1987 album "Hysteria". During recordings of "Angelia", engineer and co-producer David Cole along with Richard Marx tried to copy the sounds of the guitars and drums that Def Leppard and producer "Mutt" Lange had used on the "Hysteria" and "Pyromania" records. Ironically, during a night out with Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen, Richard Marx was told that Def Leppard attempted to emulate Angelia for a song that was to appear on the next Def Leppard album, "Adrenalize". The song Def Leppard recorded with "Angelia" in mind was likely the hit "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad". The production and sound of the song "Angelia" is Richard Marx's favorite from his second album, "Repeat Offender". (en)
