While lunching with a friend yesterday he relayed a charming story of stumbling upon a Grace Jones concert while spending an evening wandering Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens. Of course, Grace has been stuck in our head since.
This song is probably our favourite from a long list of loves, and the video still looks remarkably inventive some 25 years later! Together they are for us the hallmark of what was such an exciting era, fueled by creative new music, the emergence of video art, and a discovery of the magic of the French pubs (commercials). Grace Jones was a huge phenomenon in Europe and worked extensively in the modelling and commercial milieu, and many of her iconic images pop up here in the clip. So, without further ado...
...Ladies and Gentlemen, Miss Grace Jones!
Don't be a slave to the routine this weekend,
go out and do something crazy!
