KING OF SORROW




"King of Sorrow" is the second single from the English group Sade's fifth studio album, Lovers Rock (2000). The song was written by Sade Adu, Stuart Matthewman, Andrew Hale, Paul Spencer Denman and produced by Sade, Mike Pela.

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.

As MANY of us have such a keen awareness of world today because of what is going on in Haiti, I thought this song would be perfect. So few of us have a compassionate demeanor when it comes to the plight of others and I would hope that the earthquake in Haiti and the other social ills of the world would may you consider lending yourself to those who are in need. What else do we need to happen in this world before we adopt a responsive attitude to being responsible for each other?

  2. That's a really good question. I wish I knew the answer. Seems like it's going to take a lot to get people to adopt the notion of responsibility not only of self but of others. What affects one group of people in one region of the world affects everybody. It's a connection that should never be denied.
