What jazz be this?

I have an old copy of the Hal Leonard Ultimate Jazz Fake Book. Over the years I've noodled through all the songs at least a couple of times. I have at least a vague idea of where all the songs fit in jazz history... all except one. Fool That I Am, written (so far as I can tell) for the 1980 romantic comedy Coast to Coast and performed by Rita Coolidge. Chords, melody and recording style fit into none of the jazz eras or idioms that I'm familiar with. How did it end up in the fake book?
