Send Me An Angel by Real Life COVER performed on an Oberheim OB-8 and Sequential Pro 3 with vocals

Sean Christopher Evoking Emotion with Synthesizers

"Oh how I loved this song and album (Real Life's Heartland) back in the 80's as a teenager, and Send Me An Angel has to be in my top ten pop songs of that entire decade. In fact, I recommend that you buy Heartland if you love this song. Needless to say, I've always wanted to cover this piece and finally got around to it. For synth bass duties I used my Sequential Pro 3 and for everything else synth I used my beloved Oberheim OB-8 which did a fantastic job recreating those 80's synth patches. For drums and guitars I used NI's Kontakt and Battery.

A big thank you to Tim Murphy for providing the lead vocals. Until this cover, Tim has not sang for over 20 years, but with a little coaching from my wife gave us a great performance IMO. Also thank you to my wife, Ann Marie, for providing the "Angel" vocals. I provided additional bass vocals underneath the chorus and 2nd verse.....which luckily for you the listeners isn't too loud. LOL"

And the original followed by the '89 version with a Sequential Circuits Prophet-5

Real Life - Send Me An Angel '89


"Real Life official video for the Australian release of Send Me An Angel '89. The US version was a reworking of the 1983 video where they edited out original keyboardist Richard Zatorski. Real Life had released Send Me An Angel '88 before they remixed and re-released it again in 1989. This version reached No.51 on the Australian Top 100 chart but got as high as No.24 in Melbourne."
