“The Sweetest Taboo”–Sade

October 1993 in San Diego

This song and this woman are so damn hot. Her music and she embody sultry soulfulness. Just look into those eyes, watch those hips work and most of all that throaty voice.

Her band is amazing; rightly so as she has been working with many of the same musicians throughout her career. She has so many signature songs, but I chose this because it just heats me up every time I hear it.

“The Sweetest Taboo” is the lead single from their second studio album, Promise (1985)

2001 Anaheim USA

São Paulo – Brasil
Filmagem: Luiz Cruz

If I tell you
If I tell you now
Will you keep on
Will you keep on loving me
If I tell you
If I tell you how I feel
Will you keep bringing out the best in me

You give me, you give me the sweetest taboo
You give me, you’re giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

There’s a quiet storm
And it never felt like this before
There’s a quiet storm
That is you
There’s a quiet storm
And it never felt this hot before
Giving me something that’s taboo
(Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me)

You give me the sweetest taboo
That’s why I’m in love with you (with you)
You give me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me
(Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me)

I’d do anything for you, I’d stand out in the rain
Anything you want me to do, don’t let it slip away

There’s a quiet storm
And it never felt like this before
There’s a quiet storm
I think it’s you
There’s a quiet storm
And I never felt this hot before
Giving me something that’s taboo

You give me the (you give me, you give me the)
Sweetest taboo
That’s why I’m in love with you (with you)
You give me, keep giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

You’ve got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me
Every day is Christmas, and every night is new year’s Eve

Will you keep on loving me
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me
