Action News 5’s Traffic Tracker Janeen Gordon the other morning told me if she hears Sade one more time she might lose her mind.
I just stared at her. What was she talking about. How cold someone say that? Do I need to stick up for Sade? Has she only heard Smooth Operator? She must know there is so much more.
Then she reminded me that she plays it over and over during her job as a dj at a radio station that mostly plays smooth love songs. If you heard her voice you’d know why she’s perfect for this gig.
Anyhow, this is on my mind because I went on a quick trip yesterday. Landed back in Memphis around 8 pm. As soon as I stepped outside I was knocked out by the humidity and strong fragrance of gardenia. It’s almost summer in the south and that means it’s time to listen to Sade on my porch. No better time of the year. I’ve written several blogs about why I love Sade – about what her music reminds me of ( no it’s nothing naughty ) – so this post will just be to announce – it’s time.
