“There Must Be an Angel (Playing with My Heart)” was released from the Eurythmics fifth studio album Be Yourself Tonight, and features a harmonica solo by American singer Stevie Wonder. The gospel-influenced song was released as the album’s second single and became a worldwide success; most notably in Ireland, Norway, Brazil and the United Kingdom, where it became the duo’s only chart-topping single to date.
While the song peaked at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, it became another Top 10 success for the band in Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria and Australia.
In 2013 the song was voted by NME as third best number one song of all time!
The song’s music video was one in a long line of innovative clips from Eurythmics. In the clip, Stewart portrays Louis XIV of France in the Court of the Sun King, while Lennox appears as a singer brought forth to perform and entertain the King. Bored at first, Stewart eventually becomes enthralled with Lennox’s performance as the song reaches its conclusion. The video clip features elaborate costuming and set design and was filmed at The Wimbledon Theatre in London with a budget of £100,000
