“Wish I Had An Angel” is the eleventh single for Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish, the second from their fifth album Once. The song features vocals by then-vocalist Tarja Turunen and bassist Marco Hietala, but is still performed live with current vocalist Anette Olzon and is often used as the final song of the band’s live shows. Featured on the soundtrack of the film Alone in the Dark, it became the group’s most popular single in Europe and in the United States, next to Nemo. It made it onto two U.S. film soundtracks. It reached #60 in the United Kingdom, the highest of any of the band’s singles in the UK. Read on...
