About Angelia

"Angelia" is a ballad recorded by Richard Marx and the third released single on his second album, Repeat Offender. "Angelia" hit #2 on the Cash Box singles chart, and reached #4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart on December 2, 1989. It was also a Top 40 hit in Australia and made the Top 50 in the UK. On the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, "Angelia" peaked at #2 for several weeks behind the Linda Ronstadt/Aaron Neville duet "Don't Know Much". Richard Marx based the sound of "Angelia" on Def Leppard's 1983 album Pyromania and the 1987 album Hysteria. During recordings of "Angelia", engineer and co-producer David Cole along with Richard Marx tried to copy the sounds of the guitars and drums that Def Leppard and producer "Mutt" Lange had used on the Hysteria and Pyromania records. During a night out with Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen, Richard Marx was told that Def Leppard attempted to emulate Angelia for a song that was to appear on the next Def Leppard album, Adrenalize. The song Def Leppard recorded with "Angelia" in mind was likely the hit "Stand Up (Kick Love Into Motion)". The production and sound of the song "Angelia" is Richard Marx's favorite from his second album, Repeat Offender. Michael Landau played the guitar solo on the song.

Memories of you and me
Tumble inside my head
The way that we used to be
Things that we said

No one has ever made me believe so strong
You left me to wonder
How did our love go wrong

Where you running to now
Got to make you turn around

I lie awake at night
Wait for the sun to shine
I still feel you next to me
Your lips on mine

Without a warning
You made our love a lie
You said you were sorry
But you never told me why

Where you running to now
Got to make you turn around

Maybe my love is in vain
Maybe you're the hurting kind
Can't take no more of this pain
I've got to get you off my mind

Tried to be what you wanted
I gave you all I had
You left me with nothing
Nothing but a photograph

Where you running to now
Won't you please turn around
Where you running to now
Where you running to now

Richard Marx

Richard Noel Marx (born September 16, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American adult contemporary and pop/rock singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer. He had a stream of hit singles in the late 1980s and 1990s, including "Endless Summer Nights", "Right Here Waiting", "Now and Forever", and "Hazard". Although most of his major hit songs were slow ballads, many of his songs had a classic rock style, such as "Don't Mean Nothing", "Should've Known Better," "Satisfied," and "Too Late To Say Goodbye".
