Thanks to PARADE magazine, we now know the inspiration behind Sarah McLachlan’s popular song, \"Angel\". See Q/A below.
What was the inspiration for Sarah McLachlan’s poignant song \"Angel,\" now being used in ASPCA commercials? – Barbara Fowler, Charleston, W. VA
\"That song poured out after I read about the herioin overdose of Smashing Pumpkins’ touring keyboardist, Jonathan Melvoin,\" says McLachlan. \"It’s about needing to escape, which might mean love for some, addition for others.\" The ad has raised $30 million for the ASPCA.
My favorite song by here is Hold On (I think that is what it’s called) It’s been awhile since I’ve given her a listen. She started to be played on the Alternative station back in the 90’s and shortly after that I quit listening because it turned into bad music being played shortly after that.
