Wiki – “Angel of the Morning” is a popular song, written and composed by Chip Taylor, that has been recorded numerous times by, or has been a hit single for, various artists including Juice Newton, Nina Simone, Olivia Newton-John, The Pretenders/Chrissie Hynde, Dusty Springfield, Mary Mason, Melba Montgomery, Bonnie Tyler, Rita Wilson, Crystal Gayle.
Written and composed by New York City-born songwriter Chip Taylor, actor Jonathan “Jon” Voight’s brother, “Angel of the Morning” was originally offered to Connie Francis to sing, but she turned it down because she thought that it was too risqué for her career.
The highest-charting and best-selling version in the United States was recorded and released in 1981 by country-rock singer Juice Newton for her album Juice. Newton re-interpreted the song at the suggestion of Steve Meyer, who promoted Capitol Records singles and albums to radio stations and felt a version of “Angel of the Morning” by Newton would be a strong candidate for airplay.
Newton’s version reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 22 on the Billboard country music chart, and spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart in April of that year.
