"There Must Be an Angel (Playing with My Heart)" is a song performed by British musical duo Eurythmics. It was written and recorded by band members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart for their fifth studio album Be Yourself Tonight (1985), and features a harmonica solo by American singer Stevie Wonder. The gospel-influenced song was released as the album's second single during the third quarter of 1985 (see 1985 in music) and became a worldwide success; most notably in Ireland, Norway and the United Kingdom, where it became the duo's only chart-topping single to date.
Ever since the record has been covered by several musical artists, including Brittany Murphy, Fantastic Plastic Machine, Leningrad Cowboys, Luciano Pavarotti, Kylie Minogue, Jessica G. Pilnäs and, most noticeably, German pop group No Angels who scored their second number-one hit in Austria and Germany with their interpretation for the reissue of their album Elle'ments in August 2001.
