"Angel" is a song recorded by pop music duo Eurythmics. It was written by band members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart and produced by Stewart. The song appears on Eurythmics' "We Too Are One" album and was released as its fourth UK single and second US single.

"Angel" is a pop ballad with an adult contemporary sound. Lyrically Lennox sings about a woman who has taken her own life and now has "gone to meet her maker" as an angel. The lyrics also namecheck Elvis Presley. The music video, directed by Sophie Muller, is not widely seen and was not shown by MTV, supposedly due to several scenes depicting the occult.

"Angel" peaked at number twenty-three on the UK singles chart. The accompanying video garnered play on US video channels but the single failed to chart on the US Hot 100.
