Drinking, Fighting, F*&king, and Crying

sade best of

If there was ever a musical group who specialized in laying down sounds smooth and sultry enough to coax people out of their garments and into one another’s arms, it is British band Sade.

Sade is both the name of the band and the stage name of Helen Adu, and it is the combination of both her voice and the smooth – and I mean smooooth – musical accompaniment of her band that, legendarily, can set a mood that inspires coitus like no other act.

And it works.

Back in my single days, the only other musical soundtrack to a low-key, I’ll-cook-you-dinner-at-my-house evening that almost always guaranteed desert would be an act and not a dish was, well, I’ll save that for another column. Suffice it to say that, although I could never fool anyone into thinking I was a – excuse the pun – smooth operator or candidate for the role of Larry Dallas in a Three’s Company real-world remake, there was really only one secret weapon in romancing, and it was always Sade. Most of the group’s songs and especially their singles will do, I’ve simply used this track for my example here today because it is my favorite.

Now, in the words of King Mob, who’s in for a knees up?
