The song “Earth Angel” is classic doo wop music. “Earth Angel (Will You Be Mine)” was written by Curtis Williams, Jesse Belvin, and Gaynel Hodge (uncredited). (For those who like music history, Williams was with the group The Hollywood Flames and was on their record “Buzz-Buzz-Buzz.” Please click here to read more and listen to “Buzz-Buzz-Buzz.”. Gaynel Hodge was also with The Hollywood Flames, The Platters, and The Turks. Hodge wrote and performed for many aritsts.) Anyway, back to this song, The Penguins released “Earth Angel” in 1954 on the Dootone label. It was the B-side to “Hey Señorita,” but it soon became much more popular and reached #1 on the Billboard R&B chart in 1955 and #8 on the U.S. Pop chart. It was also featured in the film Back to the Future. Since its release, there have been many covers. However, the version of “Earth Angel” by The Penguins is ranked #152 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Another honor is from The Library of Congress, which added “Earth Angel” in 2004 to the National Recording Registry.
