The YouTube video The Effortless Quiet Storm Cool Of Sade & “Smooth Operator” | New British Canon by the YouTube channel Trash Theory.
Here is the description for this video:
Britain is not known for its soul music. But in the 1980s there was a nostalgic wave of British acts that were enthralled by the sound: Phil Collins was covering the Supremes, Soft Cell and Dexys Midnight Runners were in love with obscure R&B 45s and there was an influx of white-fronted plastic soul groups like Spandau Ballet, ABC and late era Roxy Music. But adding some legitimacy and heat to the mix was Sade. Their debut album Diamond Life defined the 80s for many, its warm sensuality the soundtrack for many an intimate moment, while singles like “Your Love Is King,” “When am I Going to Make a Living?” and “The Sweetest Taboo” quiet-stormed the charts. But who was this band? This is New British Canon, and this is the story of “Smooth Operator.”
This dream involved a Cyberpunk 2077-like world, it was not as futuristic & dark as the Cyberpunk world, it was just similar in some ways, I was in this part of the dream, but I can not remember the details
At some point in the dream, I talked to some kids, maybe some random kids started talking to me along a sidewalk or something.
The video above is for the song Cherish The Day by Sade from their 1992 music album Love Deluxe; this is definitely a song I remember hearing back in the day, probably at some family gatherings, and later when I got one of Sade’s greatest hits music albums.
