"Angel" is the title of two songs written and performed by Fleetwood Mac.

The first Fleetwood Mac song with the title "Angel" was written by Bob Welch, and appears on the 1974 album Heroes Are Hard to Find. A cover version of this song has become a staple of Jonathan Wilson's live shows.[1]

The better-known of the two songs was written by Stevie Nicks for the 1979 album Tusk. Nicks attributed the song to the story of Rhiannon in the Welsh mythological folk story the Mabinogion, and in particular Arawn, who is the great lord of darkness.[2] Nicks' 1974 song "Rhiannon", released on the following year's Fleetwood Mac album, was not based on the Welsh myth but a novel called Triad, by Mary Leader.
