I thought I had already added Sweet Love" to 80's Music Friday before now, but I searched my 80's archive and didn't see it. I heard Anita Baker interviewed on the radio a week or so ago and was reminded of what a wonderful voice she has. Isn't this song just dripping with love?

I'm giving you two versions, the original video and a smoking hot live performance. There are few singers today who can come close to Anita Baker. This is just one of those classics that, in my mind at least, isn't confined to any decade; it's just good. 


Sweet Love
(Anita Baker, Louis A. Johnson & Gary Bias)
With all my heart I love you baby
Stay with me and you will see
My arms will hold you, baby
Never leave, 'cause I believe

[Chorus:]
I'm in love, sweet love
Hear me calling out your name, I feel no shame
I'm in love, sweet love
Don't you ever go away, it'll always be this way

Oh, your heart has called me closer to you
I will be all that you need
Just trust in what we're feeling
Never leave 'cause baby, I believe

[Chorus]

No stronger love in this world
Oh, baby no, you're my man, I'm your girl
I'll never go, wait and see, can't be wrong
Don't you know this is where you belong

Sweet, sweet and lovely baby
Stay right here, never fear
I will be all that you need
Never leave, 'cause baby, I believe

[Chorus]
