A Song for the Weekend #14 – Angels on My Side by Rick Astley

Long have I enjoyed Rick Astley’s music. I can clearly remember my sister playing his album to death in our shared bedroom as we did our homework and I am certain that she had a bit of a crush on him – as did I. 

His song ‘Cry for Help’ has been my favourite song of his for quite some time. I was lucky to not only hear him play this at Rewind Festival back in 2014 but I also had the opportunity to interview him. Whilst my teenage crush is no longer, I have to say that he is such a lovely man and looks so much younger than his years.


I was really looking forward to hearing his new album ’50’ and I have to say that it doesn’t disappoint. It is a stunner of a record and has a number of great tunes on it. ‘Keep Singing’ is the very worthy first single but my favourite so far is ‘Angels on My Side’. It gives me a really positive feeling whenever I hear it. The fact that the album has made number one is no surprise to me and I think it is going to be gracing my playlist for some time to come.
