Still In Love With You
by Sade

Album: The Ultimate Collection (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • The England-based R&B/Soul band Sade released their second greatest hits studio album, The Ultimate Collection, on May 3, 2011. The disc contained three new songs, including this post-break-up ballad, where a desperate Sade Adu conveys the emotion of love lost. She pleads, "Call on me, baby/ If there's anything I can do for you/ Please, call on me, baby/ Help me see it through."
  • Phil Lynott, who was the singer of Thin Lizzy, wrote the song and it was originally recorded by the Irish rock band on their Nightlife album. The claim has been made that the bulk of the song was written by Irish guitarist Gary Moore, who briefly joined Lizzy following the sudden departure of guitarist Eric Bell, but had left the band by the time the album was put together in the autumn of 1974.
