#RomanticTuesday 8-2-16

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday! I hope you’re doing well! Today’s Romantic Tuesday song here is “No Ordinary Love.” The song made its debut in the U.K. and U.S. in 1992. While some say the song is about being in an affair, I don’t see it that way. If you watch the Sade video, it’s about two people who love each other but live in two different worlds. She’s a mermaid and he’s a sailor. She eventually becomes human to look for him. Unfortunately, she’s unable to find her long lost love. Love is such a beautiful but complex thing! Sade’s “No Ordinary Love” won a Grammy Award for best R&B performance in 1994. According to Wikipedia, the song’s been covered worldwide by various singers and bands like Deftones, Night Shift, Chris Botti and Richard Marx (Richard Marx’s version is “Ordinary Love” but it’s the same song and lyrics). I also included some of these versions. Night Shift is a hard rock band from Belgrade, Serbia. Besides Sade, they’ve covered several others like Prince, Eurythmics and Ricky Martin. Chris Botti is an American trumpeter and composer. He won a Grammy in 2013. Which version do you prefer? I prefer the original but I also like Chris Botti’s smooth and relaxing jazz version. Richard Marx’s version isn’t too bad either. Have a great rest of the day, everyone! I’ll be back tomorrow with 915 art.
