Song of the Day #2,385: ‘Please Send Me Someone To Love’ – Sade

I never listen to Sade, but hearing today’s random SOTD makes me think I should have her on in the background every night while unwinding after work. She has such a lovely, soothing voice.

Perusing Sade’s Wikipedia page, I’m surprised to see how successful she was right up through her last album (to date), 2010’s Soldier of Love. She (or the band that bears her name) has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, and every one of her releases has gone platinum or multi-platinum.

Now it’s been seven years of radio silence. I wonder if she has another comeback in her.

Heaven please send to all mankind
Understanding and peace of mind
But, if it’s not asking too much
Please send me someone to love

Show the world how to get along
Peace will enter when hate is gone
But, if it’s not asking too much
Please send me someone to love

I lay awake night and ponder world troubles
My answer is always the same
That unless men put an end to all of this
Hate will put the world in a flame, oh what a shame

Just because I’m in misery
I’m not begging for no sympathy
But if it’s not asking too much
Just send me someone to love
Someone to love

Heaven please send to all mankind
Understanding and peace of mind
But, if it’s not asking too much
Please send me someone to love

    I didn’t know Sade was a band as well or that she recorded anything after the 90’s. I have always enjoyed her voice and style.

    I used to listen to her often; haven’t in awhile guess I’ll ask Alexa to play some Sade for us 🙂
