Natalie Cole — “Snowfall on the Sahara”
(from Snowfall on the Sahara) — Snowfall

Funny enough, I watched Livin’ for Love — the autobiographical TV-movie that Cole herself co-produced and starred in — on cable yesterday, and then while A and I were at dinner last night, this tune — a torchy, terrific, largely overlooked gem from the summer of ’99 — happened to spill out of the restaurant’s speakers. I got the distinct sense at that time that the universe is trying to tell me something, and I assure the cosmos that I am indeed listening.
