"Willow" by Joan Armatrading

Birthday wishes go out today to Joan Armatrading, the anglo-Caribbean singer whose smoky voice has no doubt proven the ideal soundtrack to many a steamy night...

I chose this song because it was featured on the soundtrack for the film Boys on the Side, which for three months in the mid-90s never left my CD player. It's the song of hers with which I'm most familiar and, having since experienced a broader spectrum of her music, in my opinion shows her full range of talents well.

Plus, it's got a great message; what more could you want?
