    I do - a keyboard player that I know from a band I was in commented that he didn't like Sade because of her lack of vibrato.

    I like her a lot and IMO, adding vibrato would NOT work!

    I dig her voice and to me she looks like she should be the queen of someplace important.

    There was this girl I dated pretty soon after my divorce. I was about 25-26, she was around the same age. We went into it knowing that we weren't compatible. She was looking for a Sugar Daddy and that was definitely not me, but there was an attraction between us and a fun physical aspect to it so we kept it going for awhile. I guess I was her side piece more or less. Her name was Kelly but I called her Trixie. It just seemed to fit and she thought it was funny.

    The first night she stayed over she brought a Sade CD and made me put it on the stereo when we went to bed. That became a ritual. When she put on the Sade CD I knew what to do. It stayed in my five-disc changer for a couple of months. I always smiled when I noticed it there and left it resting peacefully in slot 3 in case she decided to visit.

    One night she stayed over, we rocked out to Sade as usual, and in the morning she asked if I wanted to go to brunch. I said sure. I went to get a different disc from the changer to listen to in the car, and I noticed that she'd taken the Sade disc from the player. I knew something was up. Sure enough, over lunch she told me she'd met that Sugar Daddy and wasn't going to be coming around anymore.

    Thanks, Trixie, for a great memory.

    Love her. Hypnotic. Been hoping to catch her live but nothing on her schedule.

    Its funny but i know a lot of ppl who you'd never think would be into her, that are TOTALLY into her. She's awesome and i have been a fan for years, though i don't listen to her much lately but when i do hear her whe i am out and about it's always like "ahhhh" nice tranquil vibe..

    I think she is great. To this day when I hear "Smooth Operator" it evokes very specific memories and a hypnotic type reaction. It's weird.

    Many years since I listened to her.

    Today I was listening through a year old podcast with ace engineer and producer Al Schmitt. He's behind ALL the classic albums - from Duke Ellington to Michael Jackson, from Toto (IV) to Frank Sinatra. When asked what's left on his bucket list he mentioned one name - Sade

    I saw her at the James L Knight center in Miami.

    It was an excellent concert.

    I was a big fan of hers. I haven't listened to anything after Love deluxe.

    Her first 3 cdz got a lot of play over here. It's very romantic music. She's a star.

    If Mrs. 944 puts a Sade disc in, I know it'll be a good night. :cool:
