From the same debut album that brought us the powerhouse love song ,”This Will Be”, comes this extraordinary gem. In these two songs, Natalie Cole shows us the full range of her astonishing vocal technique. “This Will Be” requires a full-out belting voice, with no stops. “Inseparable” is the opposite, showing a far softer side to Natalie Cole in a far more traditional love song. “Inseparable” is a very clear statement of a woman’s love for her man. The form is very interesting in that there is no repetitive chorus to which a voice can anchor the song. No verse or chorus is ever repeated. It is a simple, elegant, poignant and incredibly touching song. And an absolutely irresistible First Dance.
Inseparable, that’s how we’ll always be
Inseparable, just you and me
It’s so wonderful to know you’ll always be around me
Incredible, what you are to me
Incredible, you bring out the woman in me
With your style of love, inseparable, yes we are
We’re like a flower to a tree, like words to a melody of love
There’s no way we could break up, no words that could make us blow our thing
We are just, inseparable
That’s how it is, inseparable
For the rest of our years, it’s so wonderful
To know you’ll always be around.
Tragically, Ms. Cole died on New Year’s Eve, 2015 at 65 years of age.
