Classic Front-to-Back Albums: Sade - Diamond Life

Critics have often knocked Adu for her detachment from her audience but I think they miss the point: Her delivery wraps the listener up in the stories being told like only the greatest singers can do. This record shifted 65 million units in the US, so yeah, she can't be that detached.

It's the height of the summer political season and last week we looked at winning theme songs of the presidential candidates from Kennedy to Obama, but since politics is as much about losing as it is about winning, we should also give our due to the theme songs of the losers. So here is our fun (and completely non-partisan) look at the songs that just didn't help as much as the candidates hoped they would.
