Just Call Me Angel of the Morning, Angel

I watched Charlie Wilson's War again the other night and while I didn't think it held up the second time around (short review here), I fell in love with the scene where Emily Blunt comes slinking down the stairs of Charlie's apartment wearing underwear and a button down shirt singing along to "Angel of the Morning" by Juice Newton. I had never heard the song before, but it was used so well that it immediately got stuck on my head and now I've been listening to it over and over again. It's so fucking brilliant and over-the-top. God, I miss the 80's (not that I was around for long during the decade).

Only the '80s could produce an artist called Juice Newton.

Thanks for writing! I fell in love with the song when I watched Charlie Wilson's War and I have been trying to figure out who sings it. I agree it was the perfect song for that sceene in the movie.
