Giveaway: Sade's "Soldier of Love" on Vinyl

Since Sade first emerged on the scene as Best New Artist in 1986, she’s been giving us music to, well, make out to. And although each album sounds pretty much the same, we’re not mad– mostly because Sade just keeps getting hotter.
Since we’re all about promoting all things that may help you get laid (be sure to be safe, kids), one lucky FREEwilly reader will score a copy of Sade’s “Soldier of Love” on vinyl– because let’s face it, if you have a record player you’re half way there already.
