Old School Friday – 14

We love themes for O.S.F. and this week’s theme is “another sad love song“.

I love this artist but I can only listen for so long because it makes me…uhm, you guessed it…SAD!

Helen Folasade Adu, OBE, (born 16 January 1959), better known as Sade (ʃɑːˈdeɪ), is a Nigerian-born English singer-songwriter, composer, and record producer, noted for her soulful, smoky contralto voice. She has achieved success in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s as the frontwoman and lead vocalist of the popular Grammy Award-winning group Sade. Her name, Folasade, means honour confers a crown.


Is It A Crime

Because I just can’t leave you feeling sad and hopeless….

Nothing Can Come Between Us

  1. Helen!? Dang, this is the second thing in two days that I had no clue about (see my Chaka Khan post). I need to get up on my music info. Anyway, Sade is a wonderful choice. I love the vibe to her songs & she always has great music. My fav is Nothing Can Come Between Us.

  2. Great picks! Sade’ is the ultimate “Smooth Sad Diva”!! She is a popular pick for today’s theme! I think my favorite Sade song would have to be “Love Is Stronger Than Pride”, Don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. “Is It A Crime” is a crazy song…it’ll make you run through some Kleenex with ease, but I still like the song and the other song is just a banger; I have always like the beat.

  4. aww…sooky, sooky now. Sade is the bomb. I can listen to her just about anytime. I didn’t know Sade wasn’t her real name. Thanks for the good music and the information.

  5. Also her band, sweetback released a wonderful debut album in 1996, maybe you heard of it? It featured Amel Larrieux and maxwell (they did some work on his debut album too!)

Have your say.....
