Flashback Friday: Remembering Natalie Cole


A week ago, the world of R&B lost Natalie Cole, one of the most memorable voices of my lifetime. Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension led to her heart failure, according to her family. She was 65 years old.

In an era where anyone with a hot single and a couple thousand Twitter followers is labeled a “legend,” Natalie Cole exemplified legendary. Instead of sticking with the usual Flashback Friday format, let’s look back at some of the most Unforgettable songs in Cole’s vast catalog. These are just some of our favorites. Feel free to share yours as well.

Now, it’s your turn. Email soulinstereoblog@gmail.com  hit me up on Twitter @etbowser, or stop by the comments section and share your Flashback Friday album. Leave a couple of sentences describing what makes it so great. I’ll feature your album on the blog.



  1. Her cover of “Pink Cadillac” was probably my first introduction to her. It wasn’t her finest work, but it was good enough for me to be impressed with her voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhHLifMnUxw
