Singer- songwriter Alan O’Day was a one hit wonder- on his own but he did write another #1 song- Helen Reddy’s “Angie Baby” in 1974. As a songwriter he also wrote The Righteous Brothers “Rock And Roll Heaven.” The amazing thing about “Undercover Angel” is – he was an unknown artist and an unknown label- and at the time didn’t have an album out to support the single. Alan O’Day died in 2013 at the age of 72 of brain cancer.

  1. it’s cheesy but I like it. I knew he wrote “Angie Baby” but not “Rock n Roll Heaven”… I love that song. Another song I only have now thanks to those folks at Rhino Records.
