Song Lyric Sunday – Cherry Pie

Song Lyric Sunday this week, hosted as usual by Jim Adams, has prompted us with Baking, Bread, Cake, Pie and Picnic. I do hope someone picks MacArthur Park and let us know why was that cake left out in the rain!

Anyway, I chose this perfectly sexy song by Sade called “Cherry Pie” from her first studio album, Diamond Life. I hope you enjoy it.

Diamond Life is the debut studio album by English band Sade. It was released in the United Kingdom on 16 July 1984 by Epic Records and in the United States on 27 February 1985 by Portrait Records. After studying fashion design, and later modelling, Sade Adu began backup-singing with British band Pride. During this time Adu and three of the original members of “Pride”—Paul Anthony Cook, Paul Denman and Stuart Matthewman—left the group to form their own band called Sade. After various demos and performances, Sade received interest from record labels and signed to Epic.

Recording for the album began in 1983 at Power Plant Studios in London and took six weeks to complete. The album’s content was written by the group Sade and the production was handled by Robin Millar. Fifteen songs were recorded. The album contained a variety of musical elements including soul, jazz and sophisti-pop, mostly with love lyrics. The album spawned four singles, including “Your Love Is King” and “Smooth Operator”.

Music critics acclaimed Diamond Life and it was also a commercial success, winning the 1985 Brit Award for Best British Album. The album charted highly in the UK and US, and was later certified multi-platinum in both countries. Diamond Life sold over six million copies worldwide, becoming one of the top-selling debut recordings of the era and the best-selling debut album by a British female vocalist, a record that stood for 24 years. It was also among 10 albums nominated for the best British album of the previous 30 years by the Brit Awards in 2010, losing to (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? by Oasis. Pitchfork placed the album at number 10 on its list of The 200 Best Albums of the 1980s.

Cherry Pie
Sade

Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You're the one who broke my heart.
Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You're the one who broke my heart

When I met you boy, you were as sweet as cherry pie.
That smiling eye you were as wild as Friday night.
I should have known however hard you try.
Change'd come and strangle it.
It was bound to die

You were sweet as cherry pie,
Wild as Friday night.
Sweet as cherry pie,
Wild as Friday night

Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You're the one who broke my heart in two.
Gotta find out what I meant to you, oh boy

Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You're the one who broke my heart in two.
Where were you just when I needed you?

You gave me your soul for at least a day.
"Listen boy, there was a time when I wanted you to stay."
You'll know the cost, it's you who's gonna pay.
I'm stronger now, I loved you then.
I'll ask you anyway

You were sweet as cherry pie,
Wild as Friday night.
Sweet as cherry pie,
Wild as Friday night

Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You're the one who broke my heart in two.
Where were you just when I needed you, boy?

Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You're the one who broke my heart in two.
I needed you

You teased me.
You broke my heart.
You broke my heart

You were the only one.
You were the only one.
You're a son of a gun

You were the only one.
You were the only one.
Oh boy, you broke my heart

Sweet as cherry pie.
Sweet as cherry pie.
Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You're the one who broke my heart in two.
Gotta find out what I meant to you, oh boy

Gotta find out what I meant to you.
Where were you just when I needed you?
Gotta find out what I meant to you, boy.
Where were you when I needed you?

You were the only one.
You were the only one.
Son of a gun

You were the only one.
I'm feeling strong,
I loved you then.
So I ask you anyway

Gotta find out what I meant to you.
You broke my heart.
Gotta find out
Gotta find out what I meant to you

You tease me

You were the only one.
You were the only one.
Son of a gun

You were the only one.
You were the only one

    Great song. I’ve always thought that Sade has the most sultry, sexiest singing voice ever.

    And by the way, I did choose “MacArthur Park” and did explain about the cake in the rain. But it’s not scheduled to be posted until 3 am Pacific time, a little more than three hours from now.

    Sade is a wonderful singer in my opinion she took time out to bring up her children but she is back if you want to listen to some new sounds. Diamond Life is a favourite album.
