"She Talks to Angels" is a song by the rock band The Black Crowes. It is the eighth track on their first album, Shake Your Money Maker (1990) and was the fourth single released from the album. The song reached number 30 on the US Hot 100,[1] number one on the US Album Rock Tracks chart and number 70 on the UK Singles Chart in 1991.

In 2010, Chris Robinson explained in a webisode (part of a promotional internet series for the band's 2010 Croweology album) that the song is loosely based on a "goth girl" he was acquainted with in Atlanta who was "into heroin".[2]

The song was covered by Brent Smith and Zach Myers of the American hard rock band Shinedown on their 2014 Acoustic Sessions EP.[3]
