Addendum to the Modern Meanings of Flowers, Muammar Gadaffi Edition

“What was going through my head was ‘How long do I have to sit here and how quickly can I get out of here?’ … And then he said, ‘I have Libya’s best composer, most famous composer write this song for you,’ and it was called ‘Black Flower in the White House.’”
Muammar Gadaffi commissioned a song and its performance for Condoleezza Rice, a woman of whom he was notoriously fond, which she describes in her new memoir, No Higher Honor. Unfortunately (?), the song is nowhere to be found on YouTube. Soundcloud either.
