She never did reach me, in any way. When I am listening to radio, and one of her songs comes on, I usually tune out and drift off into thoughts of other things. I don't know what it is about Sade, but I cannot stay focused on the music when it is one of hers. It's like a post hypnotic suggestion; as if someone told me that I would never be able to hear anything by Sade, without fazing out. I have the same problem with Enya.
Love Sade! Amazing voice. Saw her in concert last summer. She was great. Grew up listening to her music.
