Real Soldier...

So for us who couldn't afford or wouldn't shell out $500 for Sade tickets...

Here's the opening of her shows.

That is a VERY dramatic opening, coming all up out the floor like that and all. Maybe that's the norm. I haven't been to a high end concert in some 20 years, so this is dramatic.

Lieutennant By, who is a Sade STAN, went to the concert. He even reinacted Sade coming up out of the floor.

It is almost worth shelling out some bread to go see it live!


Sade is like me. She's like a UFO. It will be YEARS before she comes out of seclusion again. YEARS. Gotta catch her when she come out.

All I know is a DVD is being filmed. I WILL be buying that.

Really though.

I came across an interesting remix.

With Raheem Devaughn? He really came up, didn't he? On a Sade record, sounding like one of the Bob or Ziggy Marley. LOL.

I am interested in this song for it's complexity. And I am going to use the first couple of lines in that song as a writing prompt. Even my coworker By (a true stan), hadn't heard that one.

"I've lost the use of my heart... But I'm still alive."

I like that line...

Sade is a real soldier. She been through some thangs. Really. She's in her 50s now. Bet she has some real soldier stories to tell...

I like that line...

And I love that song!


  1. I have not been to a big concert in a long time as well. I catch a few acts here and there at free venues around town.

    Girly was working that entrance! She seemed a little unsteady on those 6 inch stilettos though. She can back to singing barefoot. We don't care. Yep, I'm a Sade Stan! Where is the eye candy guitar player she used to have? That man was HOT.

  2. I was at the concert and own the DVD. Let me tell you, she is magical in person. She rocked that stage like she was 25 years old. I was so fortunate to have caught her live.


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
