Out of many albums from Sade, Lovers Rock is by far my favorite album. I can sing along to all the songs listed in that album.
Back in the year 2000, when the album first released, I was interested in finding out what does Lovers Rock mean? So I started to raise the volume whenever the song is played in the radio. But waiting till the radio’s playing the song is not something that I like. I decided to buy the cassette. I remember I bought it out of my saving and went to Aquarius Mahakam to purchase it (oo.. back in the days when cassette was a luxurious thing for me).
At that time, one of my closest classmates moved to Bandung. We kept in contact by writing letters and we wrote each other many things about our daily life, movie series and songs that we were into. One day, a small package came and was adressed to me. I wondered what my friend in Bandung sent me.
You got it, she sent me cassette of Sade album Lovers Rock! She wanted me to have the cassette as I mentioned in letter that I’ve been listening to By Your Side over and over. I didn’t tell her though that I’ve bought a cassette of my own already. So it was funny at that time because I had two cassettes from the same album of Sade.
Couple weeks ago I cleaned up my room and found her letters among many letters from my pen pals. Her letters brought memories of her and definitely smile to my face
Aniway, now you can guess why the album meant a lot to me. And I just love to listen to the songs from album Lovers Rock..
Now, there’s this one song that has been on my mind, exactly since couple hours ago. I have no clue why I’m singing this song.. maybe I’ve been thinking about somebody who broke my heart.
