What do you think of when you hear the word Angels?
No need to answer. We already know what you’re going to say. It’s ‘Angel’ by Shaggy.
Who could ever forget the lyrics to this classic tune?
“Girl, you’re my angel, you’re my darling angel
Closer than my peeps you are to me, baby
Shorty, you’re my angel, you’re my darling angel
Girl, you’re my friend when I’m in need, lady”
However, we get the feeling that Shaggy never read the Monster Manual because his view on angels is…inaccurate. If we go by Wizards of the Coast’s view of angels, this song has a completely different meaning than Shaggy thinks it does.
More accurate lyrics would read something like this:
“Girl you’re my single-minded-murder-machine, you’re my darling agenda-pushing-divine-warrior
killing all my peeps who disagree, baby
Shorty, you’re a living-weapon, you’re my darling shapeshifting-manipulative-self-involved-messenger
Girl, you might be my friend when I’m in need, but your’re also just as likely to smite me for some unknown transgression, lady”
But we don’t really expect much from Shaggy anyway, so we’ll let him off the hook.
Anyway, on this episode Alex and Kyle dive into the entry on Angels and discover that their reputation for being ‘good guys’ is, at best, wildly misleading.
From now on, we’re calling Angels ‘Sky Bros’, and not in an endearing nick name kind of way.
