Sade: Cherish the Day

You may not know of my obsession with Sade, from back in undergrad when I scribbled her song lyrics on frames of IKEA mirrors to searching frantically at EVERY Target I could for her album “Soldier of Love” last year (which BTW, I found generally emotionally exhausting and depressing.)

Sade has literally sung the soundtrack of my life – from “Smooth Operator” at age five to “Moon and the Sky” at 31.  Last Wednesday, I watched her perform both songs and everything in between.  It was so awesome.  It was the BEST $180 I’ve spent ALL year.  I would have happily spent another $250 to re-live the evening.

So, if she is coming to your town on her world tour you should STRONGLY consider checking her out.  (BTW, John legend rocked it too.)  If that is not an option, I implore you to pull out all those albums from “Diamond Life” to “Soldier of Love” and jam to them!

There is even a NEW greatest hits album, “Sade:  The Ultimate Collection” that even includes my fave album cut, “Bulletproof Soul.”  I don’t have it yet, but will be buying it soon.
