SADE Y SU BANDA






Los miembros fijos de su banda desde los años ochenta son:







El saxofonista y guitarrista Stuart Matthewman,  

              Andrew Hale a los teclados 
Paul S. Denman al bajo.


El primero, el que más me gusta.



If I tell you 
If I tell you now 
Will you keep on 
Will you keep on loving me 
If I tell you 
If I tell you how I feel 
Will you keep bringing out the best in me 
You give me, you give me the sweetest taboo 
You give me, you're giving me the sweetest taboo 
Too good for me 

There's a quiet storm 
And it never felt like this before 
There's a quiet storm 
That is you 
There's a quiet storm 
And it never felt this hot before 
Giving me something that's taboo 
(Sometimes I think you're just too good for me) 
You give me the sweetest taboo 
That's why I'm in love with you 
You give me the sweetest taboo 
Sometimes I think you're just too good for me 

I'd do anything for you, I'd stand out in the rain 
Anything you want me to do, don't let it slip away 

There's a quiet storm 
And it never felt like this before 
There's a quiet storm 
I think it's you 
There'a a quiet storm 
And I never felt this hot before 
Giving me something that's taboo 
You give me the sweetest taboo 
That's why I'm in love with you 
You give me, you're giving me the sweetest taboo 
Too good for me 
You've got the biggest heart 
Sometimes I think you're just too good for me 
Every day is Christmas, and every night is new years eve 

Will you keep on loving me 
Will you keep on, will you keep on 
Bringing out the best in me

The Sweetest Taboo 
Álbum: Promise  (1985)









Your love is king
Crown you in my heart
Your love is king
Never need to part
Your kisses ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
Tearing the very heart of me
I'm crying out for more
Your love is king
Crown you in my heart
Your love is king
You're the ruler of my heart
your kisses ring
Round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
I'm crying out for more
Your love is king
I'm coming up, I'm coming
You're making me dance, inside
Your love is king
Crown you in my heart
Your love is king
Never need to part
Your kisses ring
Round and round and round my head

Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
Tearing the very heart of me
I'm crying out for more

Touching the very part of me
It's making my soul sing
I'm crying out for more
Your love is king
This is no blind faith
This is no sad and sorry dream
This is no blind faith
Your love
Your love is real 
Gotta crown me with your heart
Your love is king
Never, never need to part
Your love is king
Touch me.
Your love is king
I'm coming up
Your love is king
You're making me dance, inside
Your love is king

Your Love Is King
Álbum: Diamond Life (1984)



La letra de la canción es un poco ______, pero, para repasar los grados del adjetivo, comparativo y superlativo, en inglés viene muy bien. La música... de lo mejorcito de Sade.





It may come, it may come as some surprise
But I miss you
I could see through all of your lies
But still I miss you
He takes her love, but it doesn't feel like mine
He tastes her kiss, her kisses are not wine, they're not mine

He takes, but surely she can't give what I'm feeling now
 She takes, but surely she doesn´t know how

Is it a crime?
Is it a crime?
That I still want you
And I want you to want me too

My love is wider, wider than victoria lake
My love is taller, taller than the empire state

It divides and it jumps and it ripples like the deepest ocean
I can't give you more than that, surely you want me back

Is it a crime?
Is it a crime?
That I still want you
And I want you to want me too

My love wider than victoria lake
Taller than the empire state
It dives and it jumps
I can't give you more than that, surely you want me back

Is it a crime?
Is it a crime?
that I still want you
And I want you to want me too

It dives and it jumps
And it ripples like the deepest ocean
I can´t give you more than that
Surely you want it back

Tell me
Is it a crime?

Is it a crime?
Álbum: Promise 1985







Y la última... una  versión (jazz)  del Smooth operator impresionante, así la definió Gatopardo hace tres años y estoy de acuerdo con él. (A ver quién se atreve a decir lo contrario.)




He's laughing with another girl 
And playing with another heart 
Placing high stakes, making hearts ache 
He's loved in seven languages 
Jewel box life diamond nights and ruby lights, high in the sky 
Heaven help him, when he falls 

Diamond life, lover boy 
He move in space with minimum waste and maximum joy 
City lights and business nights 
When you require streetcar desire for higher heights  
No place for beginners or sensitive hearts 
When sentiment is left to chance 
No place to be ending but somewhere to start 

No need to ask 
He's a smooth operator 
Smooth operator, smooth operator 
Smooth operator 

Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male 
Across the north and south, to Key Largo, love for sale 

Face to face, each classic case 
We shadow box and double cross 
Yet need the chase 

A license to love, insurance to hold 
Melts all your memories and change into gold 
His eyes are like angels but his heart is cold 

No need to ask 
He's a smooth operator 
Smooth operator

Smooth Operator 
Álbum: Diamond Life (1984)





Creo que la tristeza bien manejada trae felicidad. Te purga y te permite dejarla atrás. De hecho, los temas felices te pueden hacer sentir peor. No soy depresiva, pero tengo tendencia a la melancolía.

De los pocos grupos/solistas de los 80's que rescato... porque en aquel entonces la lavandina pop destiñó la efervescencia creativa de los 60's y 70's... Como buen viejo-rockero-melanco -contracultural recuerdo que The Police, Talking Heads, Simple Minds, Sade y no muchos más me agradaron durante aquellos años.

Gatopardo dijo...

Totalmente de acuerdo.
La versión jazz sigue siendo "impresionante"...

marian dijo...

Los ochenta tienen temas memorables, en el pop y en el rock especialmente. Simple Minds, Carlos, tienen uno de "mis temas", el "Don´t you forget about me".

marian dijo...

Es que es impresionante, Gato.

Juan Nadie dijo...

Helen Folasade Adu (Sade) tiene un buen ver y una gran voz, pero su música la verdad es que nunca me dijo mucho.

marian dijo...

Me pasa igual, pero las que me gustan de ella me gustan mucho.
