Music Crush Monday: Sade

Throwing it back with our music choices this lovely Monday to Sade. Who doesn’t want a little No Ordinary Love on repeat?

Sade if you don’t know hails from  Ibadan, Nigeria, Sade gained modest recognition as a fashion designer and part-time model, prior to joining the band Pride in the early 1980s. After gaining attention as a performer, she formed the band Sade, and secured a recording contract with Epic Records in 1983. The band then released the album Diamond Life a year later, which became one of the best selling albums of the era, and the best-selling debut ever by a British female vocalist. It also gained widespread critical acclaim, and is largely considered one of the best albums of all-time.

Check out the Lyrics to No Ordinary Love below:

 

 

[Verse 1]
I gave you all the love I got
I gave you more than I could give
I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside
And you took my love
You took my love

[Pre-Chorus]
Didn’t I tell you
What I believe?
Did somebody say that
A love like that won’t last?
Didn’t I give you
All that I’ve got to give, baby?

[Verse 1]
I gave you all the love I got
I gave you more than I could give
I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside
And you took my love
You took my love

[Hook]
I keep crying
I keep trying for you
There’s nothing like you and I baby

[Chorus]
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love

[Verse 2]
When you came my way
You brightened every day
With your sweet smile

[Pre-Chorus]
Didn’t I tell you
What I believe?
Did somebody say that
A love like that won’t last?
Didn’t I give you
All that I’ve got to give, baby?

[Chorus]
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love

[Hook]
I keep crying
I keep trying for you
There’s nothing like you and I baby

[Chorus]
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love

[Hook]
Keep trying for you
Keep crying for you
Keep flying for you
Flying, falling
