シャーデー(Sade、英語発音: [ʃɑːˈdeɪ] シャーデイ)は、イギリスのバンド。シャーディーと表記されることもある[1]。女性ソロ歌手だと誤解されることもあるが、女性ボーカルとバックミュージシャンから成るバンドの名称である。1984年デビュー。第2次ブリティッシュ・インヴェイジョンを背景にして、アルバム『Diamond Life』が英国のみならず米国などでもヒット。翌年の米グラミー賞最優秀新人賞に輝いた。ジャズとアダルト・コンテンポラリーをミックスしたサウンドや、アデュの落ち着いたミステリアスなボーカルが特徴。寡作ながら、発表する作品はいずれもが世界的なヒットとなっている。
1994年から、アデュを除くメンバー3人がSweetbackという名前で活動を始めた。
2000年のアルバム『Lovers Rock』で再びグラミー賞の最優秀ポップ・ヴォーカル・アルバム賞を受賞。
2010年2月に約9年ぶりとなるオリジナルアルバム『Soldier Of Love』を発売(日本国内盤は3月)。2009年12月に同名の先行シングルを公開した。
当初のジャズやソウルの系統のサウンドから、『Lovers Rock』以降はブルースやフォークの影響を感じさせるギター中心のサウンドに変化している。またアデュがジャマイカに移住したこともあり、レゲエの影響も受けている。
Sade (/ʃɑːˈdeɪ/ shah-day) are an English band formed in London in 1982. Three of their members were originally from Kingston upon Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Sade Adu is the lead singer of the eponymous band. Their music features elements of soul, R&B, jazz, soft rock, and funk.

Sade's debut studio album Diamond Life, was released in 1984, reaching No. 2 in the UK Album Chart, selling over 1.2 million copies in the UK, and won the Brit Award for Best British Album in 1985.[5] The album was also a hit internationally, reaching No. 1 in several countries and the Top Ten in the US where it has sold in excess of 4 million copies. In late 1985, Sade released their second studio album Promise, which peaked at No. 1 in both the UK and the US.[6][7] It was certified double platinum in the UK, and quadruple platinum in the US. In 1986 Sade won a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.[8] Their 2000 fifth studio album, Lovers Rock, won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album. Sade's sixth studio album Soldier of Love, was released on 8 February 2010, and peaked at No. 4 in the UK, and No. 1 in the US.[9] In 2011, the band won their fourth Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.[8]

LYRICS

"By Your Side"

You think I'd leave your side baby
You know me better than that
You think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees
I wouldn't do that
I'll tell you you're right when you want
Ha ah ah ah ah ah
And if only you could see into me

Oh, when you're cold
I'll be there
Hold you tight to me

When you're on the outside baby and you can`t get in
I will show you you're so much better than you know
When you're lost and you're alone and you can't get back again
I will find you darling and I will bring you home

And if you want to cry
I am here to dry your eyes
And in no time
You'll be fine

You think I'd leave your side baby
You know me better than that
You think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees
I wouldn't do that
I'll tell you you're right when you want
Ha ah ah ah ah ah
And if only you could see into me

Oh when you're cold
I'll be there
Hold you tight to me
Oh when you're low
I'll be there
By your side baby

Oh when you're cold
I'll be there
Hold you tight to me
Oh when you're low
I'll be there
By your side baby
