Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Anita Baker – Sweet Love


415 – Anita Baker – Sweet Love (1986)
Written by Anita Baker, Louis A. Johnson and Gary Bias
Produced by Michael J. Powell
Label – Elektra

Whilst Whitney Houston dominated the R&B, soul and pop charts of 1986, it was a tiny songstress from Detroit who would release the outstanding R&B single of the year. Anita Baker deservedly won a grammy award for this incredibly performed adult oriented quiet storm composition celebrating love in all its exalted glory. Baker’s vocal remains centre stage; a mightily dynamic force that soars with authoritative skill and deft touch.
