iTunes Review

Grace Jones’ music is a proud embodiment of contradiction. She referenced the antiquated cabaret traditions of Paris and Berlin while embracing futuristic production techniques. She was an icon of underground club culture but refused to make conventional dance music. She made songs that were intensely lustful yet boldly undermined all conventional notions of beauty and sexuality. In short, she created her own genre of music: part funk, part disco, part new wave, part avant-garde, and more than a little Jamaican. Each of her songs is like an intense but very inviting party. Though you're warmly welcomed, the point isn’t necessarily to have fun or to be happy; it's to experience something intense and atypical. If you're new to Jones, you might start with “Pull Up to the Bumper” or “La Vie en Rose,” two unique but undeniably likeable dance hits. For a more complete understanding of her unique powers, proceed directly to her atmospheric and tantalizingly ominous covers of Tom Petty’s “Breakdown,” Flash & the Pan’s “Walking in the Rain,” and Chrissie Hynde’s “Private Life.”

Eureka, You've Found It!!!

Boys, La Vie En Rose is the stellar smooth jam that you've heard playing at the bars and in Diesel. Download and Congrats!!!

Stunning

La Vie en Rose

Eureka! I knew that Shyne's Bonnie and Shyne contained a sample that I'd known, but just could not figure out what it was. I downloaded La Vie en Rose and there it is! Shyne's Bonnie and Shyne, somewhat altered, but check it out, the sample is there. I love it when I can decipher the classics in newer, more recent music... Music, it's the gift that keeps on giving!

Grace Jones was one of the more unforgettable artists to emerge from New York City's hedonistic Studio 54 disco scene of the late '70s. Born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, Jones was raised in a strict and devoutly Pentecostal household by her parents, who eventually moved to the U.S. and left Jones and her siblings in the care of their grandmother and an abusive step-grandfather. At the age of 13, the Jones children joined their parents in the States. Jones studied theater at Syracuse University before...
