"G.L.A.D" is a song by English singer Kim Appleby. The single remix features a rap from Aswad vocalist Brinsley Forde. It peaked at #10 on the UK Singles Chart for two weeks in February 1991. In Belgium "G.L.A.D" peaked at #6 and in Ireland it peaked at #7.

Critical Reception[edit]

Music & Media wrote about the song: "The well-known PWL-vibe, sometimes known as 'the sound of a bright young Britain' strikes back. G.L.A.D. stands for Good Lovin And Devotion, and is taken from Appleby's solo debut album as the follow-up to Don't Worry. It's solid but not exactly profound."[1]
