Send me an angel - Real life

The Australian new wave band Real life formed in 1980. Original members were David Sterry, Richard Zatorski, Alan Johnson and Danny Simcic. Their debut single, 'Send me an angel', released in 1983 was the biggest hit of their career, peaking at number 2 in Australia and number 1 in Germany. Oddly enough, the single did not chart in the Netherlands.

The first time I heard the track was on a German compilation double album which I bought in 1984 during a holiday. I liked the song a lot, but it was only ten years later that I decided to buy the single as well.

My collection: 7" single no. 2295
Found: Music Machine Mailorder, Hoorn, May 18, 1995
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Send me an angel' / 'Like a gun'
