Angie is a single from rock band The Rolling Stones from their album, 1973's Goats Head Soup .

The song was recorded in november-december 1972 and is primarily written by Keith Richards, but was listed as an appointment because of Jagger-Richards. It is an acoustic ballad that is about the end of a relationship. The song was noted for its poignant lyrics about lost love and sadness. Singer Mick Jagger has with the song a huge performance, because he happened to let his beautiful vocals. Nicky Hopkins plays piano on the song. Violinist Nicky Harrinson presided over the string instruments (like the song Winter).

Although it is such a quiet number was (there were the Stones was not known for) Angie shot straight to the top of the British and American charts, but also the Dutch top 40 and the Towering ThirtyAmerica came In Netherlands and the number on a, in England obtained (after a promising start) only the fifth place.

Questions about the origin of the song have never ceased. Despite many rumors that it's about a relationship between Mick Jagger and David Bowie's wife Angela, deny the Stones this. Richards says al a year before Angie was included, with the name have come. In the booklet of the compilation cd Jump Back (the best of the Rolling Stones) claims Richards that the song is about his daughter Angela.

The song is often played live by The Rolling Stones and since 1981 it has been played on every tour. It is also as a live recording on the CD's Stripped and Live Licks.Also on the compilations Jump Back and 40 Licks.

The German party CDU used the song for the campaign of Angela Merkel, although the Stones had forbidden this. After several refusals, the party has done it without permission. The Stones decided not to take legal action.
