¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

KING OF SORROW is the second single from the English group Sade's fifth studio album, Lovers Rock (2000). The music video, directed by Sophie Muller, was filmed at and around Normandie Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico, one of the world's most famous examples of Art Deco architecture. It follows the dilemma of a single mother struggling to conciliate her children's needs with her dream of becoming a singer. And though the video is good, I feel that the words of the song are even better. This song makes me think of one the Dalai Lama’s quote that goes, ‘love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.’ So I hope this song inspires you to think of life on a grander scale because we are all connected. And I hope that when we share each other’s pain, we see that we are a part of a general philosophy that makes us more apt to regard humanity as the rewarding and enjoyable part of being alive. I believe that this song encompasses EVERY element of humanity and it can be felt beyond our individuality because it guides our hearts into action.

  4. Sade - YES! Another all-time favorite band of mine. Their music is timeless, classic, and universal. "King of Sorrow" is indicative of that. Sade's lyrics are loaded with meaning. And I couldn't agree more with your thoughts about the message of the song.... Great post!
