Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Kiss of Life”

Peter Gabriel – Sade

Two songs, ten years apart. The Peter Gabriel song is from 1982’s Security. It’s about a woman “burning with the kiss of life”.

Dancing on the tabletop, covered up with the Easter feast
You’re dancing for the fishermen, from the very large right
to the least
Dancing for the slow release, first the boy and then the beast

.

Sade’s tune, from 1992’s Love Deluxe, is a much more conventional love song.

When I was led to you
I knew you were the one for me
I swear the whole world could feel my heartbeat
