Song of the Day: 'Your Love Is King' by Sade


When I read on Brooklyn Vegan that new Sade music -- a rarity -- might be included in an upcoming box set, I immediately thought "Song of the Day"! As my mind flipped through their/her catalog of wonderful material, it quickly got stuck on "Your Love Is King," which introduced much of the word to Sade Adu and her band. Sade was the farthest thing from a one-hit wonder -- and certainly never lived in the shadow of a classic debut album, as classic as it was. Yet it surprised me to realize "Your Love Is King" -- the band's first single -- is still its biggest to date in their U.K. homeland, as well as a couple other English-speaking countries. Take a moment to remind yourself why ...

with Sade, for me, nothing tops, "Is It a Crime".

Her album Promise is about as perfect as Parallel Lines, and a handful of other albums.. where every song that comes on is like, whoah - THIS song is the best.. no, THIS one.. no, THIS one..
