I caught the latest Bledsoe Said So episode about angels and it made me think of Robbie Williams song 'Angels' and his interest in UFOs.
I do believe in "angels" for lack of a better word, but I'm on the fence when it comes to "aliens" visiting the Earth in spaceships.
I'd like to see Ryan and Robbie get together for a talk about UFOs and angels."In 2011[the Year of the Rabbit], Robbie Williams said he wrote "Angels" with his collaborator Guy Chambers in 25 minutes about his aunt and uncle. By his account, he and Chambers were sitting outside a cafe watching a water fountain, which inspired them to write the chorus. In 2016, Williams said: "It was the first of our songs that we wrote together. We could tell and hoped and prayed that we got something incredibly special." Williams expressed irritation that some assumed Chambers was the sole author."🎤You're the Voice Robbie?🦁

"The Irish singer-songwriter Ray Heffernan asserts that he wrote the first version of "Angels" in Paris in 1996, after his partner had a miscarriage. According to Heffernan, he met Williams in a pub by chance in Dublin. He showed him an incomplete version of the song, and that week the two recorded a studio demo. Williams confirmed that he had recorded a demo with Heffernan but said he rewrote the song significantly with Chambers.
Before the song's release, Heffernan accepted an offer from Williams's management to buy the rights for £7,500. He is thanked in the UK CD2 single liner notes. Williams said: "We could have gone to court, and it all would have been down to whether what way the judge wakes up that day out of bed ... So I gave him some money, and he went away."In 2011[the Year of the Rabbit], Heffernan said: "For a long time, I was angry about this, but as you get older you see things differently ... the 'Angels' connection has opened doors to publishing companies and earned me a few quid.""St. Patrick's Day 2023 ... in the Year of the Rabbit?🍻🐰
